CITIZENS COMPASS- FOUR members of rival cult groups are currently in Police net over their nefarious and criminal activities plaguing the Badagry area of Lagos State.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, has assured Lagosians that the Command will continue to combat cultism and related crimes towards ensuring lasting peace in the state.
