8/8 Celebration: Ogun Police Raise The Alarm Over Planned Cult Attacks



The Ogun State Police Command disclosed the state has rolled out measures  to deal decisively with anybody trying to breach peace in the state as cultists plan to unleash terror on the people in the state.

The police said the command received intelligence reports that some cult groups were planning to cause chaos during their annual celebration tagged ‘8/8’, being August 8, 2020, on Saturday, today.

The police, in a statement by its spokesperson in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, hinted that the celebration might result in killings and destruction of property across the state.


The statement read in part,

 “Intelligence reports at the disposal of the Ogun State command reveal that members of various unlawful cult groups are planning to mark what they called “8/8”; being August 8, 2020.

“In view of this, the command wishes to warn those having such a devilish plan to have a rethink and retrace their steps as such move will be met with strong resistance from security agencies.

“The command is therefore using this medium to appeal to parents and guardians to warn their wards to steer clear of any unlawful gathering or society on or before and after the said date to prevent had-I-known situation.’’

The command further assured members of the state to go about their legal business without fear of harassment, intimidation and molestation.
