29-year-old Small Jpron was arrested on Saturday by
detectives attached to the Alade Police Division on
Apata Street in the Somolu area of the state.
It was gathered that Small Jpron was arrested after
some suspected cultists attacked the area on Saturday
and the suspect came out with his boys for a reprisal.
Our correspondent gathered that Small Jpron allegedly
organised a gang which set a house ablaze in January
2016 on Oshinfolarin Street, Bariga, during which a 65-
year-old woman, Adejoke Adefuye, was burnt to death.
A police source told our correspondent that Small
Jpron had been declared wanted for five murder cases
in the Somolu and Bariga areas in 2016.
Speaking while being paraded at the command
headquarters, Ikeja, on Wednesday, the suspect said he
joined the cult to avenge the murder of his friend in
2009 by suspected Aye Confraternity members.
He said, “I am an Eiye cult leader. I joined the cult in
2009. The reason for my joining was to avenge the
death of a close friend, Sunday Folorunsho, aka Small
“It was the Aye cult members who killed him. So, the
Eiye faction approached me and said I should join them
and they would help me fish out the people who killed
my friend. I had a lot of boys working for me. I have
killed three persons among whom were Femi Wiper and
Lekan Akon .
“I cut them with knives. I shot some other victims. They
were killed in the Somolu and Bariga areas. It was in the
evening that Femi Wiper was killed. We were going out
for a carnival during the Easter period on Alade Street
in the Somolu area when a fight broke out. He was the
one who first pointed a gun at me and my boys hacked
him to death.”
The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, said
Small Jpron had been declared wanted by the police
for multiple cases of murder.
He added that the suspect was an ex-convict.
He said, “Earlier this year, there were major cult
clashes, where criminal elements in the Somolu and
Bariga areas engaged one another in a war of supremacy
culminating in the deaths of some persons.
“The gang, led by Small Jpron, also set ablaze a house
in the Pedro area in which an elderly woman was burnt
to death. The suspect was the one who led the cult
gang war. He is a known criminal in the Somolu area.
“He has multiple cases of murder and armed robbery
which he has confessed to. Through him, we will look
for other members of the gang who turned Pedro and
Somolu areas into theatres of war.”
