From Tunde Osho, Abeokuta
Following the recent cult-related clashes in Abeokuta and some parts of Ogun State, the Ogun State police command in order to checkmate the activities of members of these unlawful cult groups has set up a special operation squad to tackle the problem headlong.
The squad whose operation will be coordinated by the Assistant Commissioner of Police department of operations is saddled with the responsibility of quick response to any cult-related issues and will be operating 24 hours of the day.
The Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, while addressing the squad, mandated them to fish out members of the trouble-making cult groups in any part of the state and deal with them in accordance with the provision of the law.
The CP who described the activities of the cult groups as unacceptable directed the squad to clamp down on any known member of such groups because the command will not fold her hands while disgruntled elements will be making life unbearable for the law-abiding citizens of the state.
The CP also warned parents and guardians to call their wards to order as the battle against cultists is going to be vicious in days to come.
He equally warmed cultists in the state to relocate or be ready to face the unimaginable onslaught that is going to be visited on them by the newly created squad and other conventional policemen in the state.
He assured law-abiding citizens of their safety and appealed to the general public to inform the police whenever they noticed any strange gathering suspected to be that of cultists in their vicinity with the assurance that such information will be treated with utmost confidentiality.
