2 guns recovered
No fewer than five suspected cultists, three girls and two boys, were yesterday arrested while robbing innocent passers-by at Obosi, Idemili North Local Government Area, Anambra State.
Luck ran out on them when a local vigilance team driving pass them suspected their action and stopped to know their identity.
As they stopped, one of the cultists opened fire on the team, but the bullet only tore his clothes.
In retaliation, the said vigilant operative reportedly returned gunfire and got him on one of his legs, but the cultist escaped with the bullet wound.
Four of his accomplices, three girls and a boy were consequently arrested and two guns were recovered from them.
Confirming the incident, the Commander, Idemili North and South Surveillance Squad, Mr. Arthur Ilongwu, told newsmen that the run-away cultist who shot one of his boys was later arrested in Ojoto where he has gone for a medical treatment because of the bullet wound he sustained during the exchange of fire between his boys and the cultists.
He hinted that Obosi for now has become notorious in cultism adding that the arrested cultists have since been handed over to the Anti-Cult Squad at Enugwu-Ukwu.
