Police Arrest 8 Suspected Cultists In Anambra
Not only have these guys been tormenting the people of Umuezeagu village, Anaku community in Anambra state, they also force their youths into cultism.
But an end came to their reign of terror after the Special Anti-Cultism Squad (SPACS) of the Anambra Police Command stormed their hideout following a tip-off.
The SPACS Commander, CSP Christopher Bassey said eight suspects including a wanted cultism kingpin, Ogunsan Igwebuike were arrested.
Seven others are Eubuka Chidukwe, Kosolu Ifene, Onwune Onuorah, Ewele Okeke, Oloh Chike, Ogugua Maduka and Odemenam Chinedu.
“This group of suspected cultists have been terrorising the community and its environs on daily basis, forcing youths in the area to join their group.
“Following a tip-off my squad stormed a hideout on May 6 at about 1800hrs during their meeting and arrested them,” he said.
Bassey advised parents to always monitor the type of company their children keep adding that they would not be spared when caught.
The commander urged members of the public to always furnish the police with vital information that will lead to arrest of cultists and other criminal elements in the society.
According to him, the suspects would soon be charged to court to serve as a deterrent to others.
He said items recovered from the suspects included one cut-to-size locally made gun, one axe, one expended cartridge, one barret cap, charms, one knife and two plastic bottles containing hard drugs.
