The IEDOU National President described the killing of 45 youths in the town between 2017 and now by some suspected cult members as alarming which he said needed to be addressed.

AbdulAzeez urged Islamic clerics in the state to complement the effort of eradicating cultism and other vices in the state through their sermons.
