Two members of the Aye confraternity group identified as Waliyu and Timileyin Omobolaji, have been arrested in Igbelara, Ikorodu area of Lagos state by the state police command.

The police in Ikorodu were alerted that some cultists were seen with dangerous weapons on the move to cause troubles before the operatives waded in.
