Police arrest 11 Ambrose Alli University students over ‘cultism’

Eleven Ambrose Alli University (AAU) students from Ekpoma have been detained on suspicion of participating in a criminal conspiracy, being members of a cult, and possessing illegal weapons.

Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Nigeria Police Force’s spokesperson, revealed this to reporters. According to him, the Intelligence Response Team of the force detained the suspects in July at various sites throughout Ekpoma (IRT).

Their arrest, he continued, was the result of “reliable intelligence on local cult group activity.” He claimed that during the inquiry, the suspects admitted to belonging to the Black Axe Confraternity, a covert cult.

Adejobi added that items recovered from the suspects include: two AK47 riffles, three pump action short guns, one locally made pistol, two AK47 magazines, and 22 live rounds of AK47 ammunition. Others are 17 rounds of K2 live ammunition and three live cartridges.
