The Edo State Government has warned against unlawful gatherings by members of cult groups across the state in the guise of celebrating their anniversary on July 7.

In a statement on Saturday, the Edo State Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare, said the state government has put the police and other security agencies in the State, on the alert to arrest and prosecute any group who disregards the state anti-cultism Law.

He said, “As part of the renewed effort to tackle cultism in the state, the government has asked youths in the state to avoid any unlawful gathering on July 7, 2024, in the guise of celebrating the anniversary of any cult group.

“The state government has been reliably informed by the relevant security agencies that Aiye (Black Axe) is celebrating its anniversary on the 7th July 2024, with a possibility of rivalry and attack on other cult groups before, during and after the celebration.

“The state government want to use this opportunity to remind cult groups and their members of the state anti-cultism law which prohibits their activities.

“Parents and guardians should also warn their wards to avoid any gathering of cult groups as the government has placed the police and other security agencies in the State to be on the watchout to arrest and prosecute any group that violates the state’s anti-cultism law.”

Nehikhare urged members of the public to go about their lawful activities as the security agencies are on alert to secure lives and properties across the State.
