A 25-year-old suspected member of the Black Axe cult identified as Obi Adegoke confessed to the police that he was lured into the occultic group with the promise that he would have a chance to meet with star artist, Adeleke David popularly known as Davido.
According to he was an up-and-coming artist who believed meeting the music star will bolster his career.
He said: “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 join, 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,” Daily Post quoted him.
