Police Arrest Secondary School Students For Cultism

By Adebayo Williams

The Police in Delta State have arrested 28 secondary school students for being members of a cultist group. The students, arrested in Asaba, the state capital, belonged to a group called ‘Future Trigger Boys’. Of the 28, 10 were from Osadenis Grammar School, Asaba.

The State Police Commissioner, Zanna Ibrahim, said the suspects were between the ages of 13 and 16. They were arrested during school hours following information from members of the public. Ibrahim lamented the spate of the students’ activities saying they terrorised fellow students and the community.

“They call themselves the Future Trigger Boys. We were able to arrest these ones, while many others are still on the run.

“Since we arrested them, many of their parents have been on our neck, he said.

A 13-year-old JSS 1 student confirmed to Vanguard that they were indeed members of the group. He said he was introduced to the group in 2014 by a friend. He said he had since left the group, headed by one Ibrahim who is currently at large.
