The Lagos State Police Command has assured that efforts have been intensified to clamp down on suspected cultists planning to celebrate the 7/7 Neo Black Movement of Africa Day, otherwise known as the Black Axe Day in the state.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, in a statement said credible intelligence at the disposal of the command revealed that some hoodlums and cultists had perfected plans to celebrate the 7/7 Neo Black Movement of Africa Day later today.
In very strong terms, Hundeyin warned the group to shelve their plans.
The command also appealed to parents and guardians to warn their children/wards to steer clear of any unlawful gathering or society before, during and after the said date.
Hoteliers were also warned not to allow their facilities to be used for any cult-related gathering as owners of such facilities will be liable for prosecutions.
The Commissioner of Police, while urging all residents to be law-abiding and vigilant, also enjoined them to go about their lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation.
