Edo Govt Warns Against Gathering Of Cult Groups

The Edo State government has warned against unlawful gatherings by members of cult groups across the state in the guise of celebrating an anniversary today.

In a statement, the state commissioner for communication and orientation, Hon. Chris Nehikhare, said the state government had put the police and other security agencies on alert to arrest and prosecute any group which disregards the state’s anti-cultism law.

“As part of the renewed effort to tackle cultism in the state, the government has asked youths to avoid any unlawful gathering on July 7, 2024 in the guise of celebrating the anniversary of any cult group.

“The state government has been reliably informed by the relevant security agencies that Aiye (Black Axe) is celebrating its anniversary on 7th July 2024, with a possibility of rivalry and attacks on other cult groups before, during and after the celebration.

Nehikhare urged members of the public to go about their lawful activities as security agencies are on alert.
