Edo State Police Command said it has arrested a sizable number of secret cult members following the  renewed cult killings in Edo State capital.

Recall that four persons including a journalist with the Independent Television and Radio, Hillary Nosa Odia, in the Esigie area were killed on December 24, in Oredo Local Government of Edo State.

The command’s spokesperson, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, who disclosed this yesterday, said the command is aware of the secret cult fighting and killings in the state mostly in the Benin metropolis.

“A sizable number of arrests of the secret cult members of various cult groups have been made  in different locations in the state and will soon be charged to court for prosecution,” he said.

 He said the command is vigorously fighting the renewed cult fight and related killings with a view to putting it to an end for the state to be peaceful for all. 

 He said the command’s efforts in fighting against secret cult members or to stop the killings yielded good results during an operation on the Ugbowo axis on the 24th of December, 2023.

 The Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Adamu  Dankwara,  appeals to the good people of Edo State to remain calm and go about with their Christmas celebration.  

He reiterates the command’s commitments and readiness of officers and men to ensure the safety of the lives and property of the citizenry and residents of Edo State during this yuletide period.

  He, however, solicited the citizens’ participation by giving information to the police as modern and civilised policing entails citizenship and community policing.
