I joined cult group to obtain business loan –Hair stylist

The Police in Abuja have arrested 12 suspected members of a cult group, Norsemen, who have been terrorising residents of Apo District, Abuja, for some time.
Items recovered from the boys, who are being detained at the Special Anti-Robbery Squad facility, include a locally fabricated rifle, three cutlasses and a knife.
The suspects, in an interview with The PUNCH on Wednesday, admitted to being members of the Norsemen cult, with each of them giving different reasons for joining the group.
A suspect, Fidelis Ogabor, said he was compelled to join the group as a precondition for a N200,000 business loan he needed to set up a hair salon.
He said he lost his job as a supervisor in a factory and approached one William for assistance, but the latter insisted that he would help him only if he became a member of the Norsemen cult.
Ogabor said that William gave him the loan after he joined the group, but noted that the cult’s kingpin mobilised some members to beat him up over his inability to settle the outstanding balance of N177,000.
He said, “William borrowed me the money after I joined Norsemen, I have paid him N23,000.”
The FCT Police Public Relations Officer, Anjuguri Manzah, said that since the arrest of the cultists, residents of Apo District now feel safe and secure, adding that detectives are on the trail of William and Bullion who are currently at large.
