This was disclosed in a statement released through his special adviser on Public Communications and New Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka, where he stated that the ban is coming after information was made available that cultists are planning to embark on public procession on every 7th of July in the state.
He said the governor has ordered security operatives to be on red alert in Ikere Ekiti, Ijero Ekiti, Oye-Ekiti, including other towns with high students activities. They are also expected to conduct stop and search on any vehicles within the state.
According to the governor, there must be no activities of secret cults nor students procession in Ekiti state henceforth. Anyone found culpable in this act of using cultists to cause anarchy in the state will be dealt with decisively.
