Reports from Sagamu in Ogun State say the residents of the community trooped out on Wednesday begging alleged Cultists to stop killing one another.
Addressing a press conference, a youth leader, Kayode Segun-Okeowo, described the situation as “disgusting.”
“Sagamu has become a centre field for cult-related activities and killings,” he said.
He said many stakeholders and community leaders have come up with different ideas and ways forward to end this menace, regretting, however, that ”all efforts in the sensitization, peace and reconciliation processes have proven abortive and it seems as if there is no solution to this menace.”
He lamented that the rise in cult killings in Sagamu had reached a peak of communal shame among the comity of towns and cities in Nigeria.
“At this mediational and conscious point, there is an absolute and compulsory need for every Sagamu son, daughter and resident to as a matter of must, rise and raise their voice against every act of cult killing in Sagamu, not minding whose ox is gored. Enough is Enough!” Segun-Okeowo said.
He lamented that the recent cult killings in Sagamu are enough to destroy and disrupt the economic potential of the ancient town.
Segun Okeowo called on government at all levels, Security Agencies, Obas, Baales, Community Leaders, youth leaders and other stakeholders to come together towards battling the menace.
