Police Arraign 60 Suspected Cultists In Lagos
The police authorities in Lagos State on Wednesday arraigned 60 suspected cultists before a magistrate court sitting in the Yaba area of the state.
The 60 suspects, made up of 12 females and 48 males, were arraigned before Chief Magistrate Adeola Adebayo under the new Anti-Cultism Law of Lagos.
This comes 15 days after the state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu signed the anti-cultism bill into law.
The new law, “Prohibition of Unlawful Societies and Cultism of 2021” seeks to combat cultism in Lagos State by giving stiffer punishments to convicted cultists and those abetting them.
