Awakening Police Force
The rising cases of ritual killers in Delta state have finally moved the Nigerian police into action. The force command in the state has therefore mobilized strongly towards permanently clearing the state of any iota of ritual killers and yahoo-yahoo plus boys.
DSP Andrew Aniamaka, the Delta State Police spokesperson stated that the spate of ritual killings in the state is very worrisome and embarrassing to the force hence the need for the police to act in a decisive way.
According to him, “As a command, we have commenced a major crackdown in all black spots and exclusive hangouts of these evil elements in our society. Our men have been put on patrol. We have intensified our operation with raids on all black spots, major social hangouts, and places where these suspected killers hid.

“We will need the co-operation of the residents to volunteer information so that the police can investigate these unscrupulous people. If not for the Elozino Ogege killing people don’t report cases of ritual killing before now. Firstly the task of curbing this menace goes beyond the administration of law and order by the police”
“It is a societal issue that must be tackled by all stakeholders in our society from the family to the schools, down to the religious and social groups.
Rituals killings have been witnessed in numbers in Delta state recently with young girls their main victims. There was the widely reported case of Miss Elozimo Ogege, a 3rd-year student at the Delta State University, Abraka who was killed and her body parts harvested by the killers.
Another Victim of Ritual Killers
Just this Wednesday there was a reported incident involving yet another ritual killing at Ogara town where the headless body of a 10-year-old was discovered on Wednesday night.
It is because of such unpleasant incidents that have compelled the police to act. The force is talking tough and spitting fire and brimstone. It only remains to be seen how they will match their big talk with action.
