Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, Friday said six out of ten young people are cultists in the state.

The police boss, who expressed sadness over the rising cases of cultism among youths in Lagos at a townhall meeting with some residents of Surulere area, on the theme: “Partnership with Community for Crime Prevention,” called for a state of emergency on cultism.

“I instructed one of my officers to carry out a research on the reason for increase in cultism among the young ones, and it was revealed that it gives them a kind of advantage over their peers.

“For some, they joined to avoid being intimidated. Whatever reason it is, the blame is on us parents for not caring enough about our children,” he said.

He said the success story of crime fighting in Lagos could be attributed to intelligence information volunteered by members of the public.

On the forthcoming 2019 elections, Imohimi said: “The election year is approaching and it is time we started talking to ourselves. Do not allow politicians to come and use your children as touts.

“All you need to do is get your PVC and vote peacefully. Let’s not allow some people come from elsewhere to disrupt the peace in Lagos.”
