Acting Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase has ordered Commissioners of Police immediately arrest and prosecution cult members.
The IGP, in a statement issued yesterday by the Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, acting Commissioner of Police Emmanuel Ojukwu, expressed serious concern about the activity of cult groups in Benue, Rivers, Cross-River and Akwa-Ibom States.
He therefore directed all command CPs and Divisional Police Officers, DPOs, of the affected states to arrest and prosecute any youth engaging themselves in cult activities in order to forestall the increasing menace of this evil.
He, however, advised parents and guardians to warn their wards and children against this social menace that could jeopardise their future.
While observing that no nation could develop if their youths, the leaders of tomorrow, were involving themselves in cultism and other criminal activities, the IGP urged the youths to rather engage themselves in productive activities.
