No fewer than 15 cultists belonging to different cult groups have openly denounced their membership of cultism in Diogbe community, Igbo Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State.
The cultists, whose ages range between 18 and 25 years, before now had engaged in various crimes and vices within the community and its neighbourhoods.
Administering an oath of denunciation and undertaking on the cultists on Sunday in the community, the state’s Commissioner of Police, Mr Mohammed Danmallam, urged the repentant cultists to shun acts capable of bringing them in conflict with the law.
Danmallam, who, was represented by the Police Public Relations Officers, SP Ebere Amaraizu, urged the community members to accept their misguided sons wholeheartedly; adding that the police would not accept people stigmatizing them for any reason.
“This is part of the Command’s Police Public Relations Department outreach called Police Campaign Against Cultism and Other Vices (POCACOV) programme meant in countering narratives of cultism and social vices amongst youths by turning them to be better citizens.
