An increase in violence between rival secret cult groups in the capital city has prompted public outcry. Last year the government passed a bill to reinstate laws that prohibit the existence, membership and activities of secret cults, but the bill is yet to be ratified. Rival cults fight for control over land and employ assassins to hunt down and kill members of each other’s cults. Violent deaths in recent months have included those of police who are said to have been cult members. Pray that the government will follow through with the laws and begin to crack down on this kind of violence. Pray that cult members will hear the Gospel and find help to leave this lifestyle behind (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 5:17).
