In the past year, the men of the Nigeria Police Force, Ogun State command arrested at least 432 suspected cultists within the state.

Edward Ajogun, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, disclosed this during an anti-cultism campaign in Abeokuta on Tuesday, November 24.

Ajogun said the suspected cultists have since been prosecuted by the police.

According to him, most of the arrested suspects were members of the Aiye and Eiye confraternities.

The police commissioner expressed worries that cultism is spreading among students, even among those in elementary schools.

He, however, stressed that the police will clamp down on cultists and their deadly activities in Ogun State.
