The Akwa Ibom Police Command said on Friday that 20 suspected cultists who terrorised Eket Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom have been arrested.

The Area Commander, Eket, Emeka Nwonyi, disclosed this during an emergency security meeting with Stakeholders in Eket local government area of the state on Friday.

He said the suspects were arrested on Sunday.


“We have arrested at least 20 suspected cultists since the incident started on Sunday, June 10, and we are still arresting them,” Nwonyi said.

He said police was determined to fish out those that perpetuated the crime, adding that those caught would face the full wrath of the law.

“We are on top of the situation. They will not crush us, we will crush them. I feel bad, police only work on information.

“I am appealing to you to give us useful information that will help us do our job effectively,” the police spokesman added.
