Two men Arrested by NSCDC For Suspected ritualism and Cultism In Imo State

According to the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), two men in Imo State are reportedly under arrest on suspicion of being members of a cult engaged in ritualistic practices.

This declaration was made on Wednesday in Owerri during the suspects’ parade by Mr. Matthew Ovye, the Imo commandant of the NSCDC.

According to Ovye, the suspects were apprehended by the Command’s Rapid Response Squad on Okigwe Road, Owerri, when they attempted to forcibly take a second-year Imo State University student, only known as Neme, of her possessions while she was traveling to the institution.

Before his guys intervened, he said that the suspects had charmed their gullible victim and were going to trick her into moving her possessions.

“They are locally called ‘One Chance People’. They usually use minibuses to disguise themselves as commercial commuters to carry out their nefarious activities using charms, which we also recovered from them.

“We’re currently investigating them and we will prosecute them in due course because they are sabotaging the efforts of the government and contributing to insecurity,” he said.

He told the Imo people to report suspicious individuals to the proper authorities and board buses cautiously.

To stop the nasty trend in its tracks, he did, however, reassure the public that the NSCDC was “synergizing with other security agencies through intelligence sharing.”
