- A young man ,Celestin Oyebuchi has run to the police in Ogun state complaining that three persons suspected to be cultists forced him to drink blood and tortured him to join their group .
Oyebuchi added that he was abducted by the three cultists and taken to an uncompleted building where he forcefully initiated into their confraternity.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi disclosed this on Saturday in a statement.
Oyeyemi said men of the state police command arrested the three suspected cultists on Thursday following a report by the victim that the three suspects who are members of Supreme Vikens confraternity forced him to join their cult group.
Oyeyemi said the complaint was lodged at Igbesa divisional headquarters by Oyebuchi that he was abducted by the trio of Williams Omoori a.k.a Tension, Edet Godswill and Emmanuel Dimgba and taken to an uncompleted building, where he was tortured and forced to join their confraternity.
The PPRO said “he stated further that, the suspects after torturing him, gave him blood to drink as a sign of initiation.
“Upon the report, the Dpo Igbesa division, SP Abayomi Adeniji, quickly mobilized his men and went after the suspects. They were subsequently apprehended at their hideout within Igbesa community.
“On interrogation, the three suspects confessed being members of Supreme Vikens confraternity, they confessed further that they were looking for more members to join them which led them to the abduction of the complainant who may not want to join them through persuasion.”
Oyeyemi however said the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to Anti Cultists section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.
He added that the Commissioner warned that war against cultism in the state is a continuous one.
According to him, the Commissioner of Police said there is an opportunity for those who want to renounce their membership to do so before the long arms of the law caught up with them.
