The residents of Akure , the Ondo State

capital , has called on the Inspector -

General of Police , Mr. Ibrahim Idris , to

save them from incessant cult clashes

in the community which have resulted

in the loss of lives .

Specifically , the residents alleged that

policemen and other security agents

were members of the cult group. The

development , according to them , made

the fight against cultism difficult for

the security agencies in the state .

Speaking on behalf of the Akure

community in Akure on Sunday, a

former Ambassador to Greece and

Asiwaju of Akure Kingdom, Prof . Olu

Agbi , said Akure remains a peaceful

community, accommodating and safe

for investors to stay.

Agbi said the investigations have

revealed that non- indigenes were

mostly members of the secret cults that

had been disturbing the peace of the

community in the recent times, saying

the Deji - in - Council was already

looking into the development .

He said , “ Reports reaching us indicate

that some law enforcement agents are

members of these secret cults which

have made the fight against cultism

difficult for the top hierarchy of the

security agencies .

“ Security sources told us that Eiye

security men in the force would

release their members if brought to

the police station while Aiye law

enforcement agents would do the same

to their members .

“ We ask the IGP to purge the police of

the secret cult members so that the war

against cultism and other crimes could

be meaningful. We call of the Ondo

State Police Command to monitor its

men posted to the anti - cultism squad

so that we will not have cultists

masquerading as police officers.”

“ We urge the setting up of anti - cultism

squad in each of the police divisions in

the state capital . Landlords and land

owners must screen those to be given

their properties so that it would not be

converted to kidnappers’ den or

cultists’ abode . Any property owners

who contravene this must be made to

face the full wrath of the law .

“ We appeal to those with uncompleted

buildings to secure their properties

and make sure they clear the bushes

around them so as not to be converted

to den of criminals. ”

The former Ambassador also disclosed

that the Deji- in - Council has set up a

security committee headed by Chief

Elemo of Akure Kingdom, High Chief

Segun Adedipe to liaise with relevant

security agencies to monitor the

perpetrators of the notorious act and

bring them to book .

He urged that residents of the town to

remain calm that the Deji- in - Council

would definitely address the problem.
