A suspected cultist lured into the dreaded Aiye cult has revealed that he was lured into the cult group with promises that he will get to meet star singer Davido.
25-year-old Tobi Adegoke, a resident of Oniru axis of Lekki in his confession said the cult guy who lured him into the Black Axe cult said meeting Davido will help his music career.
He was among the 27 suspected cultists police picked up in different part of Lagos state over the weekend.
They were paraded by the state’s Police Commissioner Imohimi Edgal today.
Here is Tobi Adegoke’s confession:
“I am an Aiye member (Black Axe). I have been in the cult for about two years. I was told that Davido was a member and if I joined, I will be able to meet him.
“It was the guy who initiated me that said so. He said he worked for Davido and that it will be easy access. But since I joined, I have not met Davido. They told me I’ll become a very popular musician but see where I am now.
“I am renouncing my membership of Aiye. I will never belong to any cult again. They should look at my face very well. They will never see me in their midst again.
“I lived at Oniru in Lekki. I used to be a domestic help. Since I joined, I have not done anything bad. I have not killed anybody. I just wanted to be a famous musician.”
He urged other aspiring musicians to be patient so as to escape the kind of suffering awaiting him.
Several others who were picked up by police insisted that they are not cultists.
