Police arrest 7 as “cultists” raid station to allegedly free one of their members in Asaba.

About 15 suspected members of the Vikings confraternity have allegedly invaded the office of the Operation Safe Delta, a formation of the Delta State Police Command at Issele-Asagba, the state capital.

According to Punch, the cult members stormed the police formation over the arrest of a member, who they allegedly attempted to escape from police detention.

Sources revealed that the cultists were overpowered by policemen during the invasion on Monday night.

“The suspects stormed the OSD command office in four cars with over 15 members. But the police overpowered them and seven members of the cult were arrested during the incident,” the source said.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr Hafiz Inuwa, on Tuesday, confirmed the arrest of the seven suspects, adding that they confessed to being members of the Vikings confraternity.

“They invaded the command of Operation Safe Delta with the intent to rescue one of their members, but they were rounded up by our operatives. Seven of them were arrested,” Inuwa said.

The CP said despite the confession of the suspects, an Asaba-based human rights activist, Mr Harrison Gwamnishi, allegedly claimed that the suspects were members of the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights.
