February 28, 2016 – Pictures: Another 46 Awawa Cult Group Members Arrested In Agege Lagos

The Lagos State Rapid Response Squad (RRS) over the weekend arrested no fewer than 46 suspected members of the Awawa confraternity including six women.

Members of the Awawa cult group have reportedly held Agege and its environs hostage for some months now, robbing and raping their victims.

The cultists, who are identified by similar tattoo symbols beside their eyes, on their backs and hands, usually moved in scores to unleash terror on their victims.

It was gathered that the suspects were nabbed on Saturday morning, during a three-hour operation led by an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP)Timothy Ojetunde.

Operatives were said to have responded swiftly to a tip-off from two victims who were dispossessed of their valuables in Agidingbi towards Omole and Akilo Roads.
The operation was said to have been triggered by complaints from residents on the activities of the hoodlums around Agege, Ogba and Agidingbi, Ifako Ijaiye, Iyana Ipaja and Abule Egba.

It was gathered that the suspects who attempted to resist arrest by pelting security agents with stones, threatened to make life unbearable for the policemen.

According to a police source:

“Apart from incessant complaints from the residents which we received on daily basis in our office alleging that some group of young boys and girls with ages ranging between 15 and 22 years, were making lives difficult for residents and disrupting the peaceful atmosphere in Agege and its environs, they equally raped, looted, snatched and dispossessed law-abiding citizens of their belongings.

“During their recent attack along Agindigbi Road, we were able to arrest 46 of them including 6 female while others manage to escape.

“Having studied their black spots and based camps around Agege and its environs, and several petitions received by the policemen from the residents of the area, we carried out a special operation on the areas identified as their hideouts.

“Before we could make arrest these suspects, they engaged us in a fight, stoning us with pebbles and broken bottles but our men remained unshaken.
“On arrival at the RRS Headquarters in Alausa, the suspects were still threatening to make life unbearable for policemen, shouting vociferously that no one can arrest them and go scot free.

“They still have the guts to be threatening us that if we don’t let them go, their colleagues who are yet to be arrested, would besiege our base the following day and set them free. But we are more than ready for them.”

One of the suspects, Arowoseni who confessed to being a member said he was forced into the group.
“I was forced to join them on the account that I would be very powerful among my peers. They promised me that I would have free access to girls who are members of the group. One thing is certain, once you join the group, it would be very difficult to dissociate yourself again.

“And you must also be part of their proceedings and operations anytime they are set to go out. We loot, rape and rob innocent members of the public everytime we were at operation. We don’t fear anybody even police because we are always in hundreds.”

Confirming the arrest, Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Dolapo Badmus, a Superintendent of Police said that Awawa cult group is a violent group whose activities are under the close watch of the police.

“We are after them. Their financiers and leaders are our targets, with those in our dragnet, the tide is against them,” she said

    Pls, if these evils eventually return back to the society, that is going to be more destractious. They are still around oke odo. Ask Baale of ile epo, chief Saliu Dada. He doesn’t give a shit. I see them almost on daily basis. Awawa cult groups are gun powders. They are regular customers of police stations around Agege, oke odo and pleasure along Lagos-Abeokuta Exp Road.

    Criminologically, the members of this group are imbecile simply because they can’t think on their own. I will implore Lagos start Government to carry out research on the factors that lead to what make the young children on street of Agege, Lagos to keep joining this dangerous group which I am sure with fact that “Poverty”, “Lack of basic Education” is part of what make members to keep increasing on daily bases.

    It’s certain that criminal activities can not be totally eradicated in the society but the five major social institutions (Government, Religion, Education, Family and Economy) has a lot to do in order to place Agege community a safe place to live.

    Most of these kids are just into this plainly because of peer pressure.. Some are a result of the poor upbringing on their parents part(I mean even the parents still needs upbringing). I have had the opportunity to talk to some of them and all you get from them if you asked why they do all these is that they have nobody to fend and protect them so they have to do this to survive.. the age bracket is about(11-23) the ones above 23 are the ring leaders. I have seen them fight, they are very bloody and they can start a fight over the most stupid thing you ever imagine.
    The girls among them from age 13 are already away from home and their parents are still alive and kicking, by the age of 15-16 some are already mothers of if not 1 then 2 kids with different fathers of the same group and they take the child back home to their parents or if the boy has a place they would move in together and live in filth and do all sort nasty things to themselves like fights in public and unhealthy hygiene on the baby. They move in packs like hungry wolves and could remember the day they attacked me on night but I managed to get away because I was in my area.. they have weapons on them too. They can be as much as 10 or more depending on how big the room they occupy is. They smoke very heavy, Cigarettes, Indian hemp, SK, Jumbo and often times Cocaine and they get wasted. They move at night more than they move in day time. These kids just needs to be properly watched, tamed, sensitised, both girls & boys because if not checked this could pose a threat soon because as we all know these politicians that play dirty could find then useful. I am just a person that has lived in their midst from when they started gradually as stubborn children. If you live or lived in the real root of Agege(Isale-oja) like I did then you will understand… Thank God for my life.
    Let the appropriate authorities stand up now and deliberate on a lasting solution for the young ones after them are watching them closely.
    God bless us all
    God bless Nigeria!
