The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, has accused politicians of promoting cultism in the state.

He said the spate at which youths engage in cultism was becoming worrisome.

He also alleged that politicians were flouting the ban on political campaigns by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Egdal who spoke at a town hall meeting yesterday in Lagos, said: “Cultism has taken a frightening dimension for this issue that happened at Ikorodu a total number of 23 suspects were arrested and have been charged to Yaba magistrate court 1 and have been remanded in prison custody.

“We cannot allow cultist groups to begin to fester hoping that they will receive patronage from politicians. Cultism is not peculiar to Lagos. As leaders of various communities, so we will not allow people come from anywhere and heat up Lagos Island in the name of politics. That is why I am calling on you people for partnership.”
