This group is led by teenagers who go about dispossessing people of their property and even beating them up. It is quite funny that most of their victims are even way older than them while some can even give birth to these hooligans who go about in large groups. Their signature is the visible tattoos that they all have.”



According to Lana Promise, cultism can be curbed if the community folks especially parents corporate with security agencies especially the LNSA which is the closest to the people in reporting these activities when they observe.
