It also noted that 21 other cultists who are now on the run have been declared wanted by the State Police Command.

The arrested cultists who were nabbed  during a series of intelligence-led manhunt have been detained on the orders  of the Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye.

The CP also charged the Special Anti-Cult Squad (SPACS) to redouble its efforts and hunt down those who are still at large among the identified cultists.

The Commissioner also called on Community and Religious leaders to speak out against the evil of cultism in the society.
