A law prescribing death penalty for anybody found guilty of engaging in cultists was passed into law by the Ekiti State House of Assembly , while also revising upward punishments for those aiding and abetting the practice.

The House also passed the 2017 Revised Appropriation bill into law at plenary on the floor of the House, at the Assembly Chamber in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, on Tuesday.

The Secret Cult (Abolition and Prohibition) [Ammendment] Bill, 2017 was introduced by the House Leader of Business, Hon. Akinyele Olatunji, who called the notice of the House to the incessant killing of students by cultist at the higher institutions in the state, especially the Ekiti State University (EKSU) in recent time.

He said Ekiti State was known for peace and that “we will not allow any group to turn it to death trap area.”

He expressed appreciation to “the peace-loving governor of Ekiti State, who has taken urgent steps to forward the bill to the House.”

Speaker of the House Right Hon. (Pastor) Kola Oluwawole, said “we cannot fold our arms while some people would constitute themselves to menace of eliminating the lives of innocent people of this state.

“It is an everlasting sorrow for someone to lose his child or relative. The bill will reshape the lives of our youths. It will touch those who intend to join any secret cults and those who have the intention to take another person’s life.

“Those people that we are representing will have peace of mind that heir lives and those of their children are safe. The bill considers very seriously the negative consequences of such action because of the irreparable loss of lives.”
