It is believed that there would be violence accompained with bloodshed and unprecedented destruction of properties in Lagos, Ogun, and Edo States.
Hotel owners have been advised not to permit the use of their properties for any cult-related gatherings because doing so could result in legal action against the property’s owner.
The Ogun State Command’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, gave the warning in a statement issued in Abeokuta.
The statement reads; “Intelligence report at the disposal of Ogun State Command reveals that members of various unlawful cult groups are planning to mark what they called 7/7 on Thursday, being 7th of July, 2022. The report also revealed that the event may result in bloodletting and wanton destruction of properties.
“In view of this, the command wishes to warn those having such devilish intentions to rethink and retrace their steps, as such a move will be met with strong resistance from security agencies.
“To this end, all the Command’s tactical squads namely: SWAT, Anti-Cultists, Anti-kidnapping as well as the DPOs and Area Commanders have all been put on Red Alert to nip in the bud any act capable of undermining the security of the State.
“The full weight of the law will descend on members of any unlawful society who intends to perpetrate evil acts, as the Command will not fold its hands while some misguided and unscrupulous elements attempt to make life difficult for law abiding citizens of the State.
“The Command is therefore using this medium to appeal to parents and guardians to warn their children/wards to steer clear of any unlawful gathering or society before and after the said date to prevent Had-I-Known situation.
“Also, hoteliers are by this release warned not to allow their facilities to be used for any cult related gathering as owners of such facilities will be liable to prosecutions.
“While assuring members of the public to go about their lawful businesses without fear of harassment, intimidation and molestation, the command has rolled out all in its arsenal to deal decisively with anybody who tries to breach the relative peace being enjoyed by the good people of the state.”
Meanwhile, the Police in Ogun, said they have arrested three suspected members of the dreaded “Eiye Confraternity”, who forcefully initiated a young girl into their cult after gang-raping her.
The suspects were arrested on June 30 at Ajuwon area of the state.
They were detained as a result of a report made by the victim’s mother to the Ajuwon Police Divisional Headquarters.
The victim’s mother claims that she sent her 15-year-old daughter on an errand in the Akute Odo neighborhood but that she got lost due to Daniel Njoku.
The young girl was taken to Njoku’s gang’s hideout by force, where they gang raped, beat, and forcibly inducted her into the Eiye cult.
The complainant went on to say that the suspects had threatened to kill her daughter if she dared tell anybody about the incident.
