Arase, who gave the order on Tuesday in a statement by the force spokesman, Mr Emmanuel Ojukwu, expressed concern about cult group activities in the affected states.

The statement also directed all Divisional Police Officers in the three states to work with the commissioners of police to forestall the increasing menace of cultists.
