The Police Command in Enugu State has arrested two cult kingpins for allegedly initiating secondary school students into various cult groups in the state.
The command’s spokesman, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement on Tuesday that the feat was achieved by operatives of the command’s Anti-Cultism Unit after an investigation.
Amaraizu noted that the suspects included Emmanuel Onuh, 18, and Chukwuebuka Egwu, 19.
“Onuh and Egwu had indulged in cult activities and related crimes for some years until they were arrested by the operatives of the Anti-Cultism Unit.
“The suspects were allegedly gang-raping their female victims who were mostly secondary school students before initiating them into a female cult group identified as White Angels.
“The White Angels Cult is a sub-cult group for female folks in T-stars and Ayez confraternities,” Amaraizu said.
The spokesman, however, said a full-scale investigation into the incident had begun.
