A suspected cultist has confessed he joined the Black Axe cult because he was promised he would meet hip-pop artiste, David Adeleke aka Davido, who they claimed is a member.
25-year-old Tobi Adegoke said he was an upcoming music artist. He added that he believed meeting Davido would have helped his music career boom.
Adegoke was among 27 suspected cultists arrested from various parts of Lagos and paraded on Wednesday.
According to him:
“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.“
