The commissioner’ vowed that the command would come down very hard on the heartless cultists, who took pleasure in killing people.
He warned that no one should call him to plead for the release of any cultist arrested in the coming clamp down unless they wanted to be disgraced.
He ordered an all out operation against cultists and their sponsors in the state.
Adeoye assured Anambra residents that their peace and tranquility that was punctured by recent cult-related killings would soon be restored.
He also solicited the cooperation of all law abiding citizens toward ridding the state of the menace of cultism.
