Ogun police have arrested three persons after they allegedly forced a young man to drink blood during cult initiation.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this on Saturday in a statement.

He said a young man, Celestin Oyebuchi complained that some people suspected to be cultists forced him to drink blood and tortured him to join their group.

Oyeyemi said Oyebuchi added that he was abducted by three cultists and taken to an uncompleted building for the initiation into their confraternity.

The PPRO said, “He stated further that, the suspects after torturing him, gave him blood to drink as a sign of initiation.

“Upon the report, the DPO Igbesa division, SP Abayomi Adeniji, quickly mobilized his men and went after the suspects. They were subsequently apprehended at their hideouts within the Igbesa community.
