The Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Edgal Imohimi, on Friday said six out of ten young people are cultists in Lagos.
The police boss, who expressed sadness over the rising cases of cultism among youths in Lagos, called for a state of emergency on cultism. Imohimi spoke at a town hall meeting with some residents of Surulere area of the state.
“I instructed one of my officers to carry out a research on the reason for increase in cultism among the young ones, and it was revealed that it gives them a kind of advantage over their peers.
For some, they joined to avoid being intimidated. Whatever reason it is, the blame is on us parents for not caring enough about our children,” he said.
