We kill when we wear red – Cultists

A 28-year-old suspected Eiye cult member, Azeez Idris, has told the police in Lagos that any day his members put on red clothes they must kill somebody.
.
.
Idris said they derived their strength from wearing red clothes whenever they were going on operations. .
.
Other suspects are Andrew Awalebi (38), Wale Oyekan (40), Uche Igbo (38), John Dayo (20), Tajudeen Oluwatosin (30), Azeez Olayeni (21), Femi Orijobi (21) and Joseph Kolawole (22). .
They were all arrested on May 9 at Jakande Estate, Lekki, when going to carry out an attack on their rival group in the area.
.
.
Idris said: “I was initiated into the Eiye cult group in 2013 by Johnbull. He approached me and said he wanted me to be part of them and promised to defend me when I was in trouble. .
.
It is true we always wear red but on the operations that they arrest us, I did not go with them. I was sleeping when policemen came to arrest me. I had been to prison twice because of cult-related issues. .
.
When I was released from prison I did not intend to join the group, but I joined when my colleagues threatened to kill me. Since I joined the Eiye group, I have not killed, but, I am the one carrying the guns we use for operations. .
.
I am not the leader of the group; the leader of our group is Jide. He was arrested when we went to fight and remanded in prison. .
.
As a member, we always assist one another who are in need of money or if such a person is being threatened we would go and give the person protection. I regret joining the group. After I joined I couldn’t leave for fear of being killed.”
