Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun has called the State Directors of Security (SDS), to be more proactive in finding the root cause of cultism in the region.

Abiodun, who made this known during the fourth Quarter of SDS Conference, South West Zone in Abeokuta, lamented that cultism had lately become prevalent, wondering how primary school children, vulcanisers, welders, artisans and the educated got involved in cultism. 

“In the last few weeks, some of the things that we have experienced in Ogun State which I am not sure you have experienced in your various states is the issue of cultism.

“Why are they killing each other? Is there something they are earning, some kind of reward? What is the incentive? I think these are posers and questions for you to look into,” he said.

“We cannot be focused on the symptom; let’s try and drill down to find out what exactly is the root cause. So perhaps if we do that, we can nib it in the bud; then we can begin to see a reduction in these incidences of strikes every now and then, for cases of cultism to begin to subside,” he said.

The state’s helmsman noted that the conference would provide the State Directors of Security an opportunity to cross-fertilise ideas, in order to strengthen and improve the security architecture of the south-western states.
