The Enugu state command of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has arrested two cult kingpins for allegedly initiating male and female secondary school students into various cult groups in the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that their arrest was confirmed by Ebere Amaraizu in a statement on Tuesday, July 16, saying that the feat was achieved by operatives of the command’s anti-cultism unit after an investigation.
Amaraizu noted that the suspects included Emmanuel Onuh, 18, and Chukwuebuka Egwu, 19.
According to him, the duo had indulged in cult activities and related crimes for some years until they were arrested by the operatives of the anti-cultism unit.
Amaraizu said the suspects were allegedly gang r*ping their female victims who were mostly secondary school students before initiating them into a female cult group identified as ‘White Angels’ cult.
Amaraizu said that White Angels cult is a sub-cult group for female folks in T-stars and Ayez confraternities.
He said Onuh revealed that he was a plumber living with his sister at Mount Street, Enugu, from Isiogbo Nara in Nkanu East local government area; and that he was the coordinator of T-Star confraternity in the state.
He revealed that Onuh joined cult group in 2015 as a SSS I student of a secondary school in Enugu (name withheld) and that he was initiated in a bush behind the said school.
“I joined the cult group out of peer influence and they promised me that they would always be there for me in case anybody troubled me and that I would become a notable person in the society.
“And that I can have any woman any time; but I regret that the contrary is the case now,” Amaraizu quoted Onuh as saying.
He said Onuh further revealed that the last secondary school girls that Onuh and his gang r*ped were brought by one Oliver also known as Chaplet, who was a conductor to the driver that normally brought those girls on school bus after their school hours.
On his part, the other member of the cult group, Egwu, who is also known as Killer, is an ardent member of the T-Star confraternity that hails from Amoli Awgu community and also lives at Mount Street, Enugu.
The police spokesperson said that Egwu was initiated into the cult group in 2014 when he was in JSS III but that was at Coal Camp axis of the state.
He eventually dropped out of school and later joined the work of tiling and from there he met Emmanuel Onuh.
