The Lagos State Police Command has warned cult members preparing to strike in any part of the state on Saturday, July 7 for a supremacy battle to drop their plan.
The state Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, said this in a statement on Thursday.
He vowed that the Force would crush any form of violence and advised those planning such to have a rethink.
Oti said, “The authorities of the Lagos State Police Command have received credible intelligence that members of some unlawful societies such as the Aiye, Eiye, Black Axe and Buccaneers are going round town serving notices to rival cult gangs in the neighborhood that they would be converging on Saturday, July 7, 2018, at yet-to-be disclosed locations within their domains.
“According to available information, the 7th day of the 7th month is sacred to these outlaws. It is also a day they settle scores with rival cults and a day of outright brigandage and anomie.
“No cult will be allowed to compromise the peace nurtured by men and women of goodwill in the state and maintained by the police.”
“The Lagos Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, therefore, urges members of the public to blow the whistle on these brigands anywhere they are found”, the spokesman added.
