The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Ekiti State Command, paraded six suspects at the Ekute area of the state capital for attempted murder.
The NSCDC state Public Relations Officer, Tolulope Afolabi, on Monday, said one Omolola, 23, reported a case of attempted murder on her by the suspects and how she was mobbed by them and stripped naked as a result of a misunderstanding.
The suspects, Tosin, 22; Abejide, 22; Adeoye, 21; Oke, 22; Ayeni, 22; and Iremide, 22.
Afolabi said the suspects had been on the radar of the command’s Counter Terrorism Unit since March 8, 2023, before they were arrested on Sunday at the Ekute area of Ado Ekiti.
He said, “After the victim was stripped, the suspects injected pepper into her private part, took the video and posted it on a social media group created by the principal suspect, Tosin, who is the group leader.
“Preliminary investigation by the CTU showed that the suspects are members of a cult group in the state capital and their mission initially was to kill the victim and dump her in a pit before an unknown person in the neighbourhood came to her rescue.”
Afolabi also disclosed that some students, suspected to be members of Eiye Fraternity attacking people living along Poly Road, Ado Ekiti, were arrested by the CTU on April 8.
The suspects, Adebayo, 19; Aladegbemi, 22; Ayedemi, 18; Oyebanji, 20; Abiodun, 23; Taiwo, 23; and Abiodun, 25, were arrested with some stolen goods in their custody.
