116 suspected cultists are detained by police in Ogun State.


Over the weekend, men from the Ogun State Police Command detained 116 alleged members of cults in the state’s Ifo region.
This information was presented in a statement released by the leadership in the state’s capital, Abeokuta.
In accordance with information regarding the 20th anniversary celebration of the Neo Black Movement, also known as the Aye Confraternity, Ifo Forum, the Commissioner of Police ordered the tactical unit and men from Ota Area Command to the area, according to a statement.
“Over 300 members of the cult were spotted during the surveillance. These included female guests present during the Aye Day celebration in Ogun State.

“They fled in different directions when they saw the team of policemen who had already cordoned off the scene, and 116 suspects, including 70 men and 46 women, were arrested.”
Numerous goods were taken from the suspects by the police.
In addition to other recoveries, it added that four axes—the confraternity’s symbol—weeds thought to be Indian hemp and a banner commemorating the cult’s anniversary were among the exhibits found at the location during the operation.

Cultists and other criminal elements should avoid the state, said State Police Commissioner Mr. Abiodun Alamutu. He added that all formations in the state have the duty to comb all dark corners to clear the state of criminals and that the police leadership under him will not accept any criminality in whatsoever guise.
