The suspects were all paraded on Wednesday March 31, before the Chief Magistrate Court, Yaba with the new Lagos State Anti Cultism Law, 2021.
The police prosecutors filed thirteen (13) count charges against the sixty suspects for various offenses including Conspiracy, Murder, Cultism, Unlawful Possession of Firearms and Breach of Public Peace under the new Lagos State Anti Cultism Law, 2021 and Criminal Laws of the Lagos State, 2015.

According to Adejobi, the law as a blessing and catalyst to eradicating cultism across the length and breadth of the state as the law caters for many loop holes in the previous laws pertaining to cult-related matters in the state.
