The police in Anambra State said they have arrested three suspected members of different cult groups in the state.
The police spokesperson in the state, Haruna Mohammed, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday in Awka.
Mr Mohammed, a chief superintendent of police, said the arrest followed a raid on their hideouts by officers from the Special Anti-Cultism Squad, following an intelligence report.
The suspects, he said, have confessed to being members of ‘Python’ and ‘Viking’ confraternities.
Mr Mohammed did not, however, disclose which part of the state the suspects were apprehended.
