Why I joined Cult; Arrested Teenage Cultist Explained 

Self protection and girlfriend’s the reason why I joined Cult.

A suspected member of the ‘Touch and See’ cult group, Usman Yahaya, 18, said he joined the gang for self-protection and to prevent any rival from taking his girlfriend.  It would be recalled that 13 Teenage Cultists were Arrested by Officers of NSCDC in Lafia 

“This is also the only way to fight against anyone that may want to snatch my girlfriend,” he added.

The NSCDC commander said the suspects were apprehended with the support of officers of the Nasarawa Youth Empowerment Scheme and members of the public who shared information with the police.

“That is why I always appeal to the public to assist us. We need their understanding and cooperation because when you fight collectively, you succeed. We are not calling on civilians to go and fight but to be our informants,” he added.

According to him, the suspected criminals were nabbed in the Angwa Tiv area of the Lafia Local Government Area of the state, adding that all the suspects would be charged to court upon conclusion of investigation
