Yesterday, Kazeem Tiamiyu, while speaking with journalists at Eleweran Police Headquarters, Abeokuta, Ogun State, said he murdered at least 15 people in a number of cult clashes in ijebu-Ode and other
areas of the State.
He gave the names of some of his victims as Solar, Sappio, Odunalayo, Akeem, Folly, Ade, Ayokun, Seun and Bisi. Tiamiyu, known as “Butcher” among his cult group, revealed that his gang was responsible for the killing of a vigilante group leader, Tola Okunneye, about a year ago during a church service in Ijebu-Igbo.
He said after shooting dead the vigilante chief, they mutilated his ear and used it for a cult practice. He said: “I was not part of that operation, but was led by Femi. After the killing, one of the victim’s ears was cut off. The gang later converged on our hideout, where we used the ear to take oath of secrecy.”
The command’s spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, told journalists that Tiamiyu belongs to Aye Confraternity. He said items recovered from the suspect included 4 single-barrelled short guns, 7 rounds of live cartridges, expended cartridge and assorted charms.
