The Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Police Force, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has labelled almost every youngster in Shagamu area of Ogun state as potential cultists.
Adejobi stated that in a tweet on X formerly Twitter, on Sunday, 17th September, 2023.
He maintained that engagement in cultism in the area was beyond the general belief that cultist groups are only found among students and stressed involvement by larger population of youth in the town.
“In Sagamu, almost every young person is a cultist. Okada riders, artisans, etc., are into cultism even more than students, and I think the whole town and Remoland, in general, should take action on it,” he wrote.
It would be recalled that the tweet came hours after PUNCH Online reported the deaths of some people in the Ijagba Sagamu area of Ogun State on Sunday by yet-to-be-identified cultists.
Adejobi expressed confidence in his claim, reiterating that what he said was a known fact among Sagamu residents.
On why he generalised in his initial tweet, Adejobi said, “I am an authority on Sagamu cases. Ask them if they know me. No one from Sagamu can dispute what I’ve said. So don’t worry about my statement, even the elders and Sagamites know.”
