New Edo State Commissioner of Police, CP, Funsho Adeboye, has officially assumed duty in Benin.
While assuming duty on Tuesday, the new CP issued a stern warning to cult members disturbing the peace of the state to leave or face the full weight of the law.
The CP also warned Officers and Men of the command to stay away from corruption and other infractions while carrying out their duties.
Adeboye, who was received by top officers of the Command, said his administration would be propelled by democratic policing and fear of God.
“Cultism is a dangerous trend which we are ready to curb.
“The Inspector General of Police has resolved that this menace of cultism should be curbed without reservation and Gov. Godwin Obaseki is
on the same page with the police’s resolve on cultism,” he said.
According to him, the Command under his watch, would not not fold its arms and allow cult groups to dent the image of the administration.
“My main priority as commissioner of police in Edo is to put an end to cultism through lawful means,” he declared.
