An undergraduate at Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Temitope Adebola has raised the alarm over threats to his life by a cult group, Black Axe Confraternity, commonly known as Aiye.
According to Adebola, some cultists from the Black Axe Confraternity started issuing threats following his refusal to join them in February.
He noted the cultists first approached him in February on TASUED campus.
“Already, I have been assaulted three times on my way back to my hall of residence outside the university,” he said.
Narrating the incident, Adebola said: “The climax of the attacks was exactly November 8 when the members of the Black Axe came calling again uninvited at my residence.
“They came to my residence in Ijagun with all manner of weapons and thereafter led me to a vehicle waiting to take us with other victims to a destination I had no idea about.
“As God would have it, I was able to escape though seriously hurt and traumatised.”
Adebola called for the help of the government and academic community to save from the hands of the Black Axe he was unwilling to join.
TASUED’s media and corporate relations office was yet to respond to enquiries at the time of filing this report.
