Security task force arrests new leader of One Million Boys cult group Eji



The Director-General of the Oyo State Joint Security Task Force, Col. Oladipo Ajibola (retd.), has announced that another leader of the notorious ‘One Million Boys’ cult group in Ibadan has been arrested.

The suspect identified as Eji, is said to be the second in command to the late Abiola Ebila, recently killed by the men of the Oyo State JTF at his hideout.

Before his death, Ebila, the former leader of the deadly group was infamous for his group’s robbery and violent activities in the state.

After Ebila’s death, Eji assumed the leadership position of the cult group.

Ajibola speaking to reporters on Sunday September 20, said, “Operation Burst has been able to reduce criminality in Oyo State; people now go about their business without fear.”

“We have effected arrests in relation to cultism, Internet fraud and other crimes, and handed the suspects over to security agencies. The most high profiled among the criminal cases was that of Abiola Ebila.”
