- The Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Wale Abass, has ordered the immediate arrest of the anti-cult operatives
A 17-year-old boy named Sylvester Watermelon was chased to his death by anti-cult operatives from the Obiaruku Police Division in Ukwuani Local Government Area of Delta State.
Sylvester and a friend had just finished purchasing medication from a chemist shop when they spotted the operatives and attempted to escape on a motorcycle.
However, the operatives pursued them relentlessly, causing the boys to crash into a wall and lose consciousness.
They were then taken to the police station, where Sylvester Watermelon tragically passed away.
The Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Wale Abass, has ordered the immediate arrest of the anti-cult operatives, who are currently being held at the Police Command in Asaba.
This incident has been strongly condemned by Human Rights Activist, Comrade Kelvin Ejumudo.
He said, “This rascality by men of the anti-cult and vigilante groups attached to police formations need to be checked before it gets out of hand and leads to unrest in the state.
“No Nigerian youth deserves to die this way. An injury to one is an injury to all.”
