The statement continued: “Irked by the killings of rival cult groups in several parts of Edo State in the last 72 hours, the Edo State Police Command has responded with massive raids and arrests of suspected cultists linked to the killings. Following credible information that cult activities were continuing along Oho Street, Uselu, Benin City on August 25, 2022, operatives of the command quickly mobilized to the scene. The body of a young man, later identified as Taiwo Edigie, age 40, with his head severed and dumped in an area other than where the body was found, was found by operatives of the command when they arrived at the scene.
“Similar news was received on the same day that a yet to be named young man was killed in connection with the current cult near Imuetiyan Street off Ojo Street in Ugbowo. The area where the incident happened and where 30 suspects were detained was the subject of intensive raids.
The statement said: “Profiling is currently underway and anyone found guilty or connected to any murder will be brought to justice once the profiling is complete.
