A member of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Hon. Damilare Bello Mohammed, has been arrested for his alleged involvement in a cult clash in Sagamu over the weekend.

Apart from the lawmaker, five suspected cultists in connection with the incident which started on Wednesday and continued till Sunday, leading to several deaths.

The lawmaker representing Sagamu State Constituency (1) is alleged to have provided shelter to the fleeing cultists.

Those arrested, according to sources, include Debbo Animashaun, Bamidele Saheed, Ismaila Onitire, Adewale Otesanya, and Tobi Owoade.

They are undergoing interrogation at the DSS Headquarters in Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
