The “Devil” has worked over time on a suspected cultist, Somtochukwu Onyebuchi, who has confessed to initiating no fewer than five under-aged children into a secret cult group in Anambra State.

The 20-year-old barber from Ire village, Ogidi in Idemili North Local Government Area of the State, was among the 103 suspects recently paraded by the Police in Anambra.

Blaming his action on the “Devil”, Onyebuchi who made the revelation over the weekend said: “I’ve been a member of the JVC since 2015 and I have initiated about five under-aged children. I have a way of convincing them to join willingly.

“I regret engaging in the act because I can’t even boast of what I’ve benefitted since I joined. I advise other members to come out so they won’t be caught.”

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, said the suspect who specialised in initiating teenagers into secret cults had been on the Police wanted list.

He said: “The suspect was arrested around 5am by operatives attached to the Command Special Anti-cult unit following a tip-off.

“He has initiated so many of the children and led us to their hideout where we arrested two under-aged children who were granted bail.”

According to him, they would be charged alongside with the principal suspect after investigations.
