LAGOS STATE POLICE ARREST 9 TEENAGERS AND 4 OTHER OVER ALLEGED CULTISM
The Lagos State Police Command has arrested nine teenagers and four others over alleged cultism.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, made this known in a press statement made available to Journalists.
In the statement, the Lagos Command vowed to get the State rid of cultists and hoodlums who forment troubles and threaten the peace and security of Lagos State.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, gave a matching order recently to the Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Heads of Department via Police Wireless Message that miscreants, cultists, and hoodlums be sniffed out of their hideouts, arrested and prosecuted accordingly.
According to the Commissioner of Police, cultism precedes and precipitates other heinous crimes and social vices; and it must be tackled headlong.
Items recovered from the suspects include locally-made guns, live cartridges, axes, cutlasses, charms and some other offensive weapons.
