The police in Ekiti State on Wednesday arraigned six men before an Ado Ekiti Magistrate Court over their membership of an unlawful society.

The police prosecutor, Olubu Apata, said the six men – Raimi Mustapha (22), Olamilekan Sodiq (21), Rasaq Taofeek (21), Boje Oluwasola (21), Usman Hakeem (30), and Adewale Obateru (20) – are facing one count cultism each.

Apata told the court that the six defendants allegedly proclaimed to be members of an unlawful society, adding that they committed the offense on August 30, 2020, about 7 am in Ado-Ekiti.

The offense contravened Section 64 (a) of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ekiti State, 2012, he added.

The defendants pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to them.
