The police in Anambra State said they have arrested six youth, between the ages of 17 and 25, suspected to be cult members.

They were rounded up around Amikwo village in Awka, the state capital, during a ceremony where some youths were being initiated into a cult group, Mr Ikenga, a deputy superintendent of police, said.

He said two locally made pistols and eight live cartridges were recovered from the suspects.

The police spokesperson said the suspects had confessed to being members of Black Axe Confraternity and had participated in the shooting incident of April 12, which resulted in the death of an unidentified man in Ukwuoji area of Awka.
