Ihiala Community Delcares War On Cultism And Other Vices


The Ihiala community in Ihiala local government area of Anambra state has resolved to check the menace of cultists in the area, insisting that their notorious activities have become a threat to lives of people in the area.

Addressing newsmen yesterday, the President General of Ihiala Progress Union, Chief Jude Ngobili expressed concern on the threat of peace and stability of the town, which has been truncated by the violent juvenile cultists which are on the increase in the town.

According to him, part of the measure put in place to actualize this dream was a stakeholders meeting which was consummated and decision taken on the way forward. 

Chief Ngobili said, “Apart from the immediate danger cultism pose to the community, the Ihiala people can no allow their children to grow up in an environment where locals are harassed, intimidated and attacked". 

“Cultism is growing at an alarming rate as primary school pupils and secondary school students are now being initiated into dangerous cult groups".

“The cultists by nature are so brutal that it is practically impossible to appeal to their conscience and that the security agencies are brought in to demonstrate the resolve of the town to meet the cultists fire for fire.

The Area Commander in charge of Ihiala Area Command of Nigeria Police Force, Mr Michael Falade (AC) commended the community for resolving to partner with security agencies to battle cultism.

He pointed out that security is an intricate issue that calls for collaboration from every law-abiding individual in the society noting that the members of the public would be doing well if they make useful information available to security agencies.

Mr Falade said the rampaging cultists are not spirits but youths known by members of the society who are carried on as overlords because the society has not decided to inform the law enforcement agencies about their criminal tendencies and activities.

He noted that with the current secured haven that Governor Willie Obiano has created in the state, the issue of Cultism will be handled with all seriousness.
