Abuja - Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduagha, has bemoaned the prevalence of cult groups in the region.
This follows the arrest of about 50 such culprits recently.

“We desire a society where law and order prevails. As a state government, we have approved the proscription of 49 cult groups,” the Governor said.
“It is so bad that we now have secret cults not just in the higher institutions but in secondary and primary schools and in communities,” he lamented.
Cults are a major concern particularly in higher education institutions.
They are blamed for the violence in those institutions and linked to terror.
