The Benue State Police Command has arrested a 35-man cult group said to be operating in the state.
State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Deputy Superintendent, Daniel Ezeala made this known while speaking to newsmen, yesterday, in Makurdi, the state capital.
Ezeala said the gang members were arrested at Katugun, a remote community in the North Bank area of Makurdi while preparing to carry out an “assignment,” adding that several dangerous weapons recovered from them included guns, knives, axes and their regalia.
The PPRO said: “You will recall that on assumption of office few weeks ago, the new Police Commissioner for Benue State, Mr. Adams Audu declared an all out war against criminals and criminality in any part of the state.
”The arrest of these gang members is in furtherance of that declaration”".
