Others were arrested at Obosi in Idemili North for offences relating to marijuana trafficking.

Police Commissioner Hosea Karma said while parading the suspects yesterday that some of the cultists were underage students of two higher institutions while others were members of high syndicate gangs.

Karma said the police would collaborate with other security organisations to flush out criminals.

He said the command would track gang members who were on the run, even as he appreciated Governor Willie Obiano for his assistance to security agencies.

Meanwhile, 48 suspected cultists, brought to the police station by the Obosi Town Union President, Dan Igbokwubile, have denounced cultism.

They pledged to assist the community and police to fight crime.
