LAGOS – Ogun State Police Command said, it has received intel­ligence report that members of various unlaw­ful cult groups are planning to mark what they called “8/8” today, being 8th of August 2020.

It said, the state command has deployed SARS detectives, anti-culttism operatives, tac­tical squard and has ordered all Divisional Police Officers DPOs and all Area Command­ers to be at alert to forestall the celebration.

The command spokesman, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi in a statement on Friday, said, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun disclosed th at the intelligence report also revealed that the event may result in bloodlet­ting and wanton destruction of properties.

“In view of this, the com­mand wishes to warn those having such devilish plan to have a rethink and retrace their steps as such move will be met with strong resistance from security agencies.

To this end, all the com­mand’s tactical squads name­ly SARS, anti cultists, anti kidnapping as well as all the DPOs and Area Commanders have been put on red alert to nip in the bud any act capable of undermining the security of the state,” he stated.

According to him, the full weight of the law will descend on any member of any unlaw­ful societies who intends to use public places to perpetrate evil, as the Command will fold it hand while some misguided and unscrupulous elements attempt to make life difficult for law abiding citizens of the State.

The command is therefore using this medium to appeal to parent and guardian to steer clear of any unlawful gathering or society on before and after the said date.

Also, hoteliers are by this release warned not to allow their facilities be used for any cult-related gathering as owners of such facilities will be liable for prosecution.

While assuring members of the public to go about their lawful businesses without fear of harassment, intimida­tion and molestation, the com­mand has rolled out all in its arsenal to deal decisively with anybody who tries to breach the relative peace being en­joying by the good people of the state.
