Detectives of the Ondo State  Police Command have arrested five cult kingpins,  who were allegedly  caught with different charms with human blood in a bottle at a popular hotel along Ore road in Ondo town,  headquarters of Ondo West Local Government  area of the  state.

The Hope Metro gathered that the  hotel is a hideout of the cultists,  who engaged  in  other dubious acts.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Femi Joseph, in a  chat   confirmed that the arrest was made in a bid to stem the rising cult activities in the state.

He said: “They were arrested and have been transferred to the Anti-cultism department for useful  interrogations.

“Meanwhile, efforts  have been intensified  to arrest other members of the gang. And they will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.

“The war against anti-cultism in the state is on and we can only do better with the support of the public,” he added.

He, however, urged residents to always report suspicious characters and movements to the police.
