The Ogun state police Commissioner of Police, CP Kenneth Ebrimson has warned cult groups in the state that plans to unleash mayhem tomorrow, 7th July, 2020 to stop their evil plans or face the wrath of the force.
It was gathered that the Ogun State Police Command has disclosed an intelligence report that members of an undisclosed notorious cult group are planning to unleash terror and violence accross the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi who confirmed this in a statement signed on behalf of the State Commissioner of Police, CP Kenneth Ebrimson, said the planned mayhem was to mark what they called 7/7.
It was also learnt that members of the group are also planning to use the said date to initiate new members into their fold after which they would engage their rival cult group in a supremacy battle which may lead to loss of life and wanton destruction of property.
Based on these revelations Oyeyemi reiterated, the command has warned those having such devilish plan to have a rethink and retrace their steps as such move would be met with serious resistance from security agencies.
He further stated that to forestall breakdown of law and order and prevent the bad boys from realising their sinister motive, the command’s tactical squads including SARS, Anti-cultists, Anti-kidnapping as well as all the Divisional Police Officers and Area Commanders have been put on red alert to nip in the bud any act capable of undermining the security of the state.
DSP Oyeyemi added that “Anybody who involved him/herself in such act will be made to face the full weight of the law because the command would not fold its hands while some unscrupulous elements will be making life difficult for law abiding citizens of the state.
“The command is also using this medium to appeal to parents and guardians to warn their wards to stay clear of any unlawful gathering on, before and after the said date to prevent had I know situation.
“Also, hoteliers are with this release warned not to allow their facilities be used for any cult related gathering as the owner of such facility would be liable for prosecution,” he noted.
Oyeyemi, however, called on all law abiding members of the public to go about their lawful business without fear of harrasment or intimation, as the command has rolled out all in its arsenal to deal decisively with anybody that tried to breach the relative peace in the state.
