Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has said he now has the power to order the demolition of buildings where cultists hide.

Abiodun said the State government had enacted a law which empowered him as the governor to bring down any house providing safe haven to cultists.

“I have signed a law that now empowers me to demolish any house where a cultist is caught,” Gov Abiodun stated.


The Governor spoke at the 90th birthday of Alhaji Teslim Dawodu, held in Sagamu, on Thursday.

Abiodun recalled that cultists used to be something found among students of tertiary institutions in the past.

He regretted that, “these days, you will find out that cultists are now your mechanic, vulcanizer, bricklayer and when you even ask them why they are involved, they don’t even understand.”

To avoid demolition of their houses, Abiodun charged property owners in Ogun to ensure they have the data of their tenants.

Abiodun advised the landlords do what he called “KYC”, saying they should know their tenants before giving out their houses.

“This is because if we should catch anyone who is involved in cultism and lives in your house, we will demolish such a house,” the Governor stressed.
