New Lagos state Commissioner of
Police, Imohimi Edgal, has ordered police officers in the state to
shoot any cultist armed with deadly weapons.

While
warning youths in the state to desist from getting involved in cults,
he also advised parents to pay attention to their children and make sure
they’re not getting in trouble with the law.
He said, “Cultism
is currently a very serious issue we must tackle in Lagos State and
everyone must be involved. I am fully out to tackle it head-on and I
urge parents to warn their children to stay out of cultism and turn a
new leaf because I am coming for them.
“The
era where cultists apprehended with firearms are treated with kid
gloves is over. I have ordered my men to shoot at any cultist who is
seen with a fire arm. This is not a joke, parents must take this message
home to their children and warn them to desist from all cult-related
activities henceforth.
“I have
also strengthened the Anti-Cultism Department of the Lagos State Police
Command and I have directed them to move all out to track all cultists
operating within the state.”
After replacing former commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, Edgal vowed to reduce crime rate in Lagos state by 30% within two months.
He stressed that his road map is based on a plan driven largely by community policing and partnership.
