While young people in some states in Nigeria and other parts of the world brag with innovations and achievements, the ones in Sagamu are jumping into cultism. 

Their interest in cultism, has now become a concern to the police.



The Nigerian Police gave this revelation about most young people in Sagamu, who are said to be cultists.

The spokesman for the police, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a post on X (formerly Twitter) says cultists are taking over Sagamu, a community in Ogun State.

Adejobi was responding to a series of questions on insecurity in the area.

When criticised about the generalisation of such a claim, Adejobi said he was speaking as an authority on the Sagamu case.

According to him, many elders are aware of it and cannot dispute it.

The Steps To Take

He added that the case of the community goes beyond mere anti-cultism squad, and the elders, including politicians, know the steps to take.

He said: “We will discuss this with the CP and take necessary steps.

“In Sagamu, almost every young one 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.

The Sagamu Case

“I am an authority on Sagamu case. Ask them, they know. No one from Sagamu can dispute what I have said. So, don’t worry yourself on my statement. Even the elders and Sagamites know.

“Sagamu case goes beyond the mere anti cultism squad.

“The elders know how to handle them. The politicians know what to do. I was in their midst in Sagamu between 2006 and 2008.

“But no single cult clash before i left in 2008. I worked then with the late Akarigbo, Oba Michael Sonariwo and others”.
