The Special Task Force deployed to maintaining peace in Plateau and some parts of Bauchi and Southern Kaduna Friday paraded 27 suspected cultists and their associates including six female in Jos, the Plateau state capital.
The Commander OPSH, Major Gen. Chukwuemeka Okonkwo, who paraded the suspects at the headquarters of the command in Jos, said the arrest of the suspect came following the recent upsurge in cult-related crimes on the plateau.

He warned there would be no hiding place for kidnappers and other criminally minded people in the state.
