Protection Of Lives Is Our Priority - Nasarawa CP

The spokesperson of the Nigerian Police Force Olumuyiwa Adejobi has responded to a recent cult clash in Sagamu that has resulted in the death of many young boys.

Cultists allegedly murdered at least 25 young men in Sagamu, the administrative centre of Sagamu Local Government Area in Ogun State.

According to information gathered by News About Nigeria, the regular conflict between the Eiye and Aiye confraternities was rekindled on Saturday.

Since then, about 25 young guys, including secondary school students, have been brutally murdered by the cults.

Some of the attack victims were seen lying in pools of blood with one of their hands severed in graphic videos and images posted online by locals.

However, Muyiwa Adejobi, the public relations officer for the Nigerian Police Force, has responded to the Sagamu cult killings.

On his X account, Adejobi who condemned the development stated that the situation in Sagamu requires more than just the deployment of an anti-cultism squad and that all hands must be on deck.

“Sagamu case goes beyond the mere anti-cultism squad. The elders know how to handle them. The politicians know what to do. I was in their midst in Sagamu between 2006 and 2008. But no single cult clash before I left in 2008. I worked then with the late Akarigbo, Oba Michael Sonariwo and others,” he said.

Adejobi further cleared that those causing the mayhem in Sagaumu are not residents of the local government. he suggested that they come from Ijebu Ode and Ago Iwoye to wreak havoc in the community.
