Acting spokesperson of the command, DSP Bright Edafe, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, July 6, said eight robbery suspects were also arrested across the state.

Edafe said the suspected cultists were nabbed after successfully initiating Obanor Ifeanyi, Oliseh Onimichi, Moses Samuel and Olusola Ese.

“On the 3/7/2021 at about 0300hrs, State anti-cult unit (SACU) detectives on a tip-off of intelligence got an information that there will be a cult initiation at a bush in Ogume community forest in Ukwuani LGA of Delta State by members of the Aiye confraternity group a.k.a black axe,” he stated.

The vehicle was recovered and both suspects arrested. Investigation is ongoing.” he said.
