What could have passed as an ordinary initiation ceremony into a newly formed secret confraternity turned sour, on Thursday, September 6.

One of the recruits who couldn't endure the torture and other initiation rites he was subjected, bolted for his dear life and ran to his mother's house at Jakande Estate, Ajah Lagos.

As expected, the so-called New Black Movement of Africa, a breakaway faction of the Aiye cult group, were annoyed by the apparent show of cowardice by the intending recruit.

They also thought that he could give them up to the police.

So, they chased him to his mother's residence and began to beat up everybody in sight, at the same time, robbing residents of the estate who were woken up by their noise.

Unfortunately for the group, the mother of the runaway boy, snuck out of the house and placed a distress call to the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Ilasan division, CSP Onyinye Onwuamaegbu.

Policemen stormed the estate and arrested 11 members of the group and recovered one locally made shotgun, four live cartridges, three cutlasses, one sledge hammer, ten horse whips and assorted charms.

The suspects are yet to be charged to court as the police are still investigating the case.

The Lagos police boss has again urged parents to hold heart to heart talks with their children, male and female alike, on the evil consequences of belonging to cult groups.
