Lagos police arraigns 60 suspected cultists

Sixty suspected cultists who were arrested at various points and communities have been arraigned by the Lagos State Police Command on Wednesday, March 31 before the Chief Magistrate Court, Yaba with the new Lagos State Anti Cultism Law, 2021.

WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the police prosecutors filed thirteen (13) count charges against the sixty suspects for various offenses including Conspiracy, Murder, Cultism, Unlawful Possession of Firearms and Breach of Public Peace under the new Lagos State Anti Cultism Law, 2021 and Criminal Laws of the Lagos State, 2015.

The new Lagos State Anti Cultism Law provides that, on conviction, cult members risk jail term of twenty-one (21) years, while their parents risk 2 years imprisonment or fine of Five Hundred Thousand Naira (#500,000).

The Commissioner of Police had coordinated some raids and operations around the state, especially, in Ikorodu Division of Lagos State to go after cultists and hoodlums who have been terrorizing the entire state and bring them to book.

This was contained in a statement released by the police public relations officer in the state, Olumuyiwa Adejobi.

The PPRO said the police commissioner described the new law as a blessing and catalyst to eradicating cultism across the length and breadth of the state as the law caters for many loop holes in the previous laws pertaining to cult-related matters in the state.

He further appreciated the Government and good of Lagos State for making the law a reality and success which is now applicable in the state.
