  1. These people didn’t have future, they can do and undo…..Police should teach them a lesson,which they wouldn’t forget in life

  2. In the olden days we only heard of Cult in Higher Institutions only but now full of every where.
    Parent talk to your children and teach them the way of God. Police torchlight/move to Ladylak ,and Adeleye street area as well .

  3. Please the rate of cult killings these days is becoming alarming I read in the papers the killings in Akwa-ibom and Edo state.This can also be lack of job and youth restiveness in our nation.God bless
