A suspected Aiye cultist, Chinedu Obi, who threatened to invade a police station with his colleagues and kill those who arrested him, has died.
The suspect, according to Ogun State Police Command spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi, died on July 20 at a hospital he was taken to for treatment after he was shot in the leg to restrain him from causing more harm.
Obi was arrested on July 19 by policemen attached to Sango Ota Division for alleged malicious damage, but went berserk during interrogation.
The suspect, it was gathered, suddenly ran out of the statement room, picked an axe and started smashing windscreens of vehicles parked inside the police station.
According to the police, Obi damaged 17 vehicles inside the station and pursued policemen with the axe before he was demobilised.
Oyeyemi said the officer who shot Obi acted in line with Force Order 237 since the suspect was armed with an axe and aggressive.
