Men of the Department of State Security have arrested a House of Assembly member in Ogun state for hiding cultists in his house.
This is as security operatives crack down on Sagamu cultists wrecking havoc in the state.
Security operatives in Ogun State on Wednesday tracked six suspected cultists, allegedly involved in the violence that erupted in Sagamu at the weekend to the official residence of a member of the state House of Assembly.
The member, representing Sagamu State Constituency (1), Hon. Damilare Bello Mohammed, was said to have been arrested for allegedly providing shelter for the culprits.
A team of security operatives, in a sting operation after a tip-off, arrested the suspects in the premises of the lawmaker.
Those arrested, according to sources, include Damilare Bello Mohammed aka DRE, Debbo Animashaun, Bamidele Saheed, Ismaila Onitire, Adewale Otesanya and Tobi Owoade.
They are presently undergoing interrogation at the Department of State Service (DSS).
Sources revealed that many dangerous weapons, including guns, were recovered from the suspects.
It would be recalled that Hon. Bello was arrested by the DSS for allegedly masterminding the violent protest that took place in February this year in Sagamu over the naira redesign policy by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
During the protest, irate youths vandalised about 10 banks and other public infrastructures.
