Eji, the suspected new leader of the notorious cult group, ‘one million boys‘ has been arrested in Ibadan by the Oyo State Joint Security Task Force.
Col. Oladipo Ajibola (retd.), Director-General of the Task Force said Eji was arrested during one of the operations by the security operatives and has been handed over for prosecution.
Naija News gathered that Eji took over from the late Abiola Ebila, former leader of the group after he was killed by the men of the Oyo State JTF at his hideout.
The cult group members are alleged to be responsible for many cases of robbery, kidnapping, and killings in the state.
Ajibola speaking to reporters on Sunday September 20, said, “Operation Burst has been able to reduce criminality in Oyo State; people now go about their business without fear.”
“We have effected arrests in relation to cultism, Internet fraud and other crimes, and handed the suspects over to security agencies. The most high profile among the criminal cases was that of Abiola Ebila.”
