The Rivers State Police Command on Monday said it arrested four suspected cult members.

It was learnt that the suspects, said to have been terrorising residents of Rumuolumeni area in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, were apprehended during a sting operation by men attached to the Rumuolumeni Police Station.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, said one revolver pistol and three live ammunition were recovered from the suspects.

“In a bid to stem the tide of the rising cult activities in the state, operatives of the Rumuolumeni Police Station on April 18 around 9pm arrested these cult members.

“They are said to be the brains behind the incessant cult wars in the area; they have made useful statements,” the police spokesman said.

Omoni explained that efforts were on to arrest other members of the gang, adding that those arrested would be charged to court at the end of investigation.
