It was wild jubilation at early hours of yesterday at the Ishashi area of Ojo, Lagos as a suspected notorious cult leader in the area was shot dead by the Police.
Olamide Oloruntobi,

Olamide Oloruntobi, 31, had been on the wanted list of police over a period of time for criminal cases until he was shot dead during an exchange of gun firing with the police.

The police said Oloruntobi, was the leader of the dreaded Aiye confraternity in the area, who met his Waterloo at Durosooto street, Celenizer, New Mebamu, Ishashi, at about 2.40 am.

 A police source said the cult group led by the deceased were terrorising the area and a distress call was sent to the police.
He said the police mobilised and went after the hoodlums who engaged the police in a  shootout and the police shot dead their leader while others took to their heels.


The image maker of the Force in the State, CSP Chile Oti said:” Based on the information, the Divisional Police Officer in charge Ishashi Division, SP Amuda Abolaji, led a team of policemen to the scene. On arrival, the hoodlums sighted the police team and opened fire on them. This led to a hot exchange of gunfire. When the dust settled, Olamide Oloruntobi was found dead.


” Meanwhile, his locally made pistol with one live ammunition had been recovered while the corpse had been deposited at Badagry General Hospital mortuary for autopsy.
” The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Imohimi Edgal, has charged the DPO, to do all he can to arrest other fleeing members of the gang. He has equally directed the head of the Intelligence Unit of the Command to assist the DPO in that regard. The CP said that the death of a cultist is not a thing of joy.


He, therefore, calls on parents and community leaders to prevail on their children or subjects who are members of unlawful groups to renounce cultism and surrender their weapons to the police. He added that he will personally receive them and together with other stakeholders, ensure their reintegration into the society”.
