They were arrested after a 16-year-old member of the famous Abogun family residing in Oto-Owori area, Ijanikin, Lagos State, confessed that she was initiated into cultism and lesbianism by Tope, the younger sister of her uncle’s wife. Her parents, who were
shocked by the confession, alerted the police after she was caught while attempting to sneak out of the house with some items demanded by her cult members. The girl, who completed her secondary education in June, said:
“It was Tope who introduced me into lesbianism and cultism. Initially, she forced me into becoming her lesbian partner. She threatened me that if I failed to do it, my life was at stake. When I became her lover, we took a blood oath as Tope used a blade to cut my hand and licked the blood. She also cut her hand and asked me to lick the blood.
She threatened that she must not see me with anyone, whether male or female but she was free to go out with others as she has other lovers. I have been her lover for over a year now and I became her lover before I completed my secondary education. After she introduced me to lesbianism, she forced me into their cult.
The night I was initiated into Aiye cult, I was blindfolded. Members of the cult gave me a gun to take an oath, declaring that I would not reveal anything about the cult to anyone. They said if I ever revealed anything about the cult to anyone, the same gun that I used to take the oath would be used to take my life. Thereafter, about 20 of the males present at the initiation slept with me one after the other.”
Based on her confession, the Divisional Police Officer in-charge of Ijanikin Division. Lagos State, SP Robinson Eregare, swung into action and succeeded in clamping down on those connected with her initiation. The young girls were recruited into the cult group as they are used as armourers who keep the ammunitions for them any time they go for operation…… no wonder boys av been complaining of d shortage of willing girls in Lagos……
