Police arrest three suspected cultists for dehumanizing Tik Tok user in Edo State


Edo police command, through its spokesman, Bello Kontongs, a Superintendent of Police (SP), yesterday in a press statement, stated that the suspects were arrested after a video of how the assault took place went viral.

Following the viral video clip where some young men were seen assaulting and dehumanizing a young lady, the Commissioner of Police, Phillip Aliyu Ogbadu, directed a discreet investigation and intelligence-based approach to unravel those behind the dastardly act.

“During the cause of information and intelligence gathering, the following suspects were arrested at different locations in Benin City: They are Omozejele John ‘M’ (29years) arrested on 26/09/2021 at about 2000hrs at Uteh Community area of Upper Mission Extension, Benin City; Smart Ogbeide ‘M’ (29years) was arrested on the 27/09/2021 at about 2130hrs along Paulingo Brothel, Uteh Community Upper Mission Extension Benin City; while Tajudeen Afesume ‘M’ (30years) was arrested in his hideout at Owina Quarters, Uteh Community, Upper Mission Extension, Benin City.

“The three suspects arrested have all confessed to the crime and further confessed to being members of Aye secret cult. They are presently cooperating with police investigations and are already providing useful information that will lead to the arrest of other cult members on the run” Kontongs said.

Edo police commissioner, according to the spokesman, directed that the suspects be charged to court, vowing that cult groups and other criminal elements would not be allowed to operate in the Southsouth state.
