Published by Streetwise Media
Acting on intelligence, the Osun state Police Command has gotten wind of a purported Cultism Day which is said to hold on Thursday, 7th of July, 2022 and has therefore warned cultists who are planning to host such a devious celebration to desist in Osun state.
A press statement e-signed and released to the National Association of Online Security News Publishers, NAOSNP by the Osun Police PRO, SP Opalola Yemisi Adewoyin mentioned: ‘In view of this, the Commissioner of Police, CP Julius Alawari Okoro, warned cultists and other unscrupulous elements in the state to stop the plan or any of such action(s) forthwith.
Consequently, the State Police Command, in collaboration with other security agents and Civilian JTF will not tolerate any unlawful gathering or assembly that will endanger the peaceful atmosphere of the state, especially during this electioneering period as the plan to mark 7/7 may lead to bloodletting and destruction of properties.’
On the issue, NAOSNP gathered that Osun state is on high alert. ‘Therefore, the Commissioner of Police has given marching order to the Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) and Tactical units to be at alert and nip in the bud any act capable of truncating the peace of the state.
The CP advised parents and guardians to caution their wards to be law abiding, and desist from any act or unlawful gathering/ assembly before, during and beyond the said date, as the State Police Command will arrest and prosecute defaulters.
Also, hoteliers, recreation, event centres and landlords/landladies are by this announcement warned not to allow their facilities to be used for any cult related activities/meetings, as owners of such facilities are liable for prosecution.’
CP Julius Okoro advised the good people of the state to go about their legitimate businesses while the Command has taken necessary security measures to forestall any likely breakdown of law and order.
Finally, the citizens are urged to be security conscious, vigilant, co-operate and collaborate with the security agents by giving useful, credible and timely information and report any suspicious movement or activities of cultists and other criminals through these numbers: 08067788119, 08039537995, 08123823981 and 08075872433.
