Police also warned hoteliers not to allow their facilities to be used for any cult-related gathering, as owners of such facilities will be liable for prosecutions.

The police authorities in Ogun and Lagos states say they have placed police officers on red alert ahead of the 7/7 annual celebration (also known as ‘boogie-night’) of confraternities in the states.

This is contained in a press statement released by the Ogun and Lagos police spokespersons, Abimbola Oyeyemi and Muyiwa Adejobi respectively.

“Intelligence report at the disposal of Ogun State Police Command, reveals that members of various unlawful cult groups are planning to mark what they called “7/7” on Wednesday, being 7th of July, 2021.

“The report also revealed that the event may result in bloodletting and wanton destruction of properties,” Mr Oyeyemi said in the statement.

The police spokesperson said in view of the development, the command will reinforce security in the state, and persons planning 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 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 societies who intend to use public places to perpetrate evil, as the Command will not fold its arms, while some misguided and unscrupulous elements attempt to make life difficult for law-abiding citizens of the State,” the Ogun police said.

In Lagos, the police say they have identified some of the cultist groups planning to partake in the 7/7 celebration.
