The Ogun state police command says it has gathered an intelligence report which reveals that members of a notorious cult group are planning to unleash terror and violence on Tuesday 7th of July 2020 across the state in order to mark what they call the 7/7 day.
In a statement by the police public relations officer in the state DSP, Abimbola Oyetemi the intelligence report further revealed that members of the group are also planning to use the said date to initiate new members into their fold after which they will engage their rival cult group in a supremacy battle which may lead to loss of life and wanton destruction of property.
The public relations officer said in view of this, those having such devilish plans have been warned to have a rethink and retrace their steps as such a move will be met with serious resistance from security agencies.
“To this end, all the command’s tactical squads namely 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,” he said.
He further said that anybody who involved him/herself in such an act will be made to feel the full weight of the law because the command will not fold its hands while some unscrupulous elements will be making life difficult for law-abiding citizens of the state.
