  A leader of a notorious cult group at Somolu known as the EFCC boys, Adebayo, aka Ogbor, has been arrested by the police. 


  Ogbor was reportedly arrested by policemen attached to the Alade Police Division around 6pm at a joint close to Abiodun Bus Stop. He was said to be drinking at the time with other hoodlums. 


  Ogbor was alleged to have actively participated in the release of a suspect known as Friday from the police custody about a week ago. 


  A resident, who craved anonymity, said, “For a long while now, Ogbor has been a terror to the Somolu community. He is the leader of the EFCC boys and is always in the company of other notorious cultists like Rasaki, Yomi Ado, Big Ahmed, Elewure, Eyin Bouncing, and Lekan Osanle. 


  He actively participated in vandalising over 100 vehicles and the destruction of other property at Oreofero, Popoola and Akoka streets last year. Under the pretext of holding a candlelight procession for a dead member, Ogbor and his group looted and destroyed property in these communities. 


  A few weeks ago, a printer, Lati, narrowly escaped death when he was attacked by a faction of a cult group led by Friday, the suspect who escaped with police handcuffs. Lati was wounded and was about to be shot, he was just lucky that the gun that Friday used got jammed.” 


  It was gathered that residents at Akoka and Popoola streets had written many petitions to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police over Ogbor’s activities. 


  Ogbor was also accused of participating in the disruption of a carnival at Akeju Street and indiscriminate shooting in the area. A soldier was reportedly wounded in the incident. 


  PUNCH Metro gathered that after the arrest, Ogbor was transferred to the Area H Command, Ogudu. 


  He was said to have been transferred again to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, where sources said he was being investigated for murder and other crimes. 


  When contacted, the Lagos Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Damasus Ozoani, said, “Ogbor was not arrested by the Alade Police Division, the arrest was carried out by the Area Command, Ogudu. 


  Ogbor has a case to answer with the police. He is one of those who have been declared wanted by the police and he has presently been transferred to the SCID to answer allegations leveled against him. Investigations are currently ongoing.”
