Two weeks after my friend came with his cult members and warned the viking members to stay clear from my part, a serious war came up between Vikings and the blackk axxe cult group. I was in school and i had just finished lecture in Petrology when a friend told me two vikings members where shot dead just outside the school gate and they where among the vikings that terrorized me. I was shocked and i refused leaving the school premises even after we finished all lectures for the day, i fear like mad. My friend called me and asked of my whereabout, i told him i was still in school READING (READING BAWO ). He rushed down immediately with some guys and took me to asaba as members of the vikings confraternity where looking for me because they concluded that i was a member of the Neo blackk movementttt. To avoid mistaken identity, i had to run with him .. I was in asaba for three weeks and the fight was still on. A police man was also shot dead as he was a member of the vikings cult group. One of the black axxe members received a call in the morning of the next day and the call came from his girl friend, Vikings cult group got a hold of the girl and they threatened to kill her if she doesnt reveal the whereabout of his boyfriend. The Axxe man became furious and started shouting ” WHO DEM BE WEY MAKE THEM THEY THREATEN MY CR, BLOODY Bagas them ” He then made a call to his fellow axxe men in obiaruku that he needs guns and pellet , instead they provided him with shotgun and cartridges . He left for obiaruku to pick them up and headed straight to Abraka to fight the boys. He calls himself, one man squad and he was respected among the black axxe members. Immediately he got to Abraka, he made some calls to some of his men still in town and they told him to come to campus 3 main gate, Immediately he got to the main gate, three men came in a bike and shot him dead in front of the main gate and that was how he ended up. We later discovered the whole thing was a setup and his girl was a member of viqueens and they used her to set him up. My exam was fast approaching and no end in sight to the war and my absence from my hostel made it look that i was a member of the black axxe as the vikings member where looking for me. A week to my exam, they called for a peace talk and the matter was settled with cash for all those lives lost. I came back and wrote my exams after missing classes and attendance registers. My CGPA dropped drastically from 4.6 to 4.2 . Axxe men returned to campus and things normalized. Immdiately after the exam. i got a call from my axxe friend that the girl the viking members used for the setup was dead ” HOW FAR PADDY, WE DON DROP THAT GIRL WEY SET JUNIOR UP ” They followed her home, tied her hands and legs to her reading chair and inserted boiling ring inside her private part, Jeez Nepa no gree seize light and she fried up and died in her room.

 

Time came for one man squad to be buried, i attended the burial ceremony and met other axxe men . The observed a ceremony known as ” Breaking of Metal ” This is a ceremony strictly for fallen axxe men and also a time to pay final respect. I heard words like ” OBOTE , OBINNA, OBI OF AGBOR, YOU GO LOOSEGUARD YOUR BACK FOR FIRE ” I asked the meaning and my friend said he cant tell me the meaning of those words since i am a ju man. He said its called gross misconduct if you reveal NBM orientation to JU . We got home and i still begged to know the meaning of those words, he then told me in private saying the words , OBOTE, OBI , OBINNA means the same thing and it means An axxe man who is or was careless with his life. They blamed him for attempting to go for the HIT alone. I left for holidays and came back to campus after a month for resumption. My friend then came up to me with a guy. They came to my house and they talked about sharing formula and all that in percentage terms. After the other guy left, i asked for my share and he said he will give me a little from it and i was happy. He said the other guy that came with him was a member of vikings but they are good friends and business partners, i was shocked and asked if it was not the same vikings cult group that killed is best friend aruba . He laughed and said ” FORGET THAT MATTER, NA MONEY WE DEY FIND, WHO DIE DON DIE ” He then said i should follow him to his hostel to get some things. We got to his room and i saw a pair of yellow stockings, they were new pairs and i pleaded to have them, he then gave me the stockings and told me to wear them . I started wearing yellow stockings to school and all around town without understanding the implications of my actions. I wore them to beach a very cool sunny sunday and a guy walked up to me and called me out from my pairs. I followed him and he asked me a particular question ” HOW FAR PADDY, YOU DEY PLAY 7 ? ” I was confused and i replied him instantly , Bros i know understand wetin be 7

 

The next thing i felt was a loud slap , i held my cheek and asked

 

ME: Wetin i do na

GUY: You dey craze, commot the socks from your leg

ME: But na socks na and why you come slap me?

GUY: You dey craze abi? You dey ask me stupid question abi?

 

I received a blow straight to my nose and before i could regain my self, i was bleeding so fast. They collected my phone,wallet and i had school fees scratch cards in my wallet. My guys took me to a nearby pharmacy and i was treated. I hurried up to see my friend to explain what happened to him. I met him at home and explained everything to him, he was mad and angry and went straight to the beach the next day. We got to the beach and we couldnt find the guys, they disappeared with my phone and school fees card. He then started making calls but i couldnt retrieve my items. ” IF TO SAY YOU BE STRONG MAN NA, ALL THIS THINGS FOR NO HAPPEN TO YOU ” I left school for home for proper medical care as my nose was swollen. I came back to campus after a week and the guys that took my wallet saw me again at a bar with a friend and ordered me to get them drinks. I had just 2k on me and i used that to order them drinks. I sneaked out to call my friend and to let him know the guys that collected my phone are with me, ” WETIN YOU WANT MAKE I DO? MAKE I GO MEET EGEDE MEN COLLECT YOUR THINGS BACK? YOU BE JU OOO MY GUY AND I NO FIT COLLECT YOUR THINGS BACK FOR YOU, IF TO SAY NA EIYE OR VIKINGS COLLECT AM, I FOR TRY COLLECT THEM BACK FOR YOU BUT NA MY BROTHERS COLLECT AM AND SO I NO FIT HELP YOU GUY, TRY UNDERSTAND ME ” I felt so bad and weak and left the bar.

 

The next day, i called my friend and told him i was ready to be a member of the NEO blackk mOve. He jumped up and said, na now you dey talk. He said i need to get the form and the form will cost me 15k. I told him to give me time to raise funds and he agreed. I was able to raise the funds and i gave it to him, ” CORRECT MAN, YOU GO GIVE ME BLACK AND WHITE PASSPORT, NO WORRY, I GO SOON CARRY YOU ENTER JOLLY” he uttered.

 

Immediately i indicated my interest to be a member of black axxe.., Boom that was it, i turned into an ATM machine. They call it suffocation and i was called ITJ … I was suffocated to the point i had regret but wetin man start, he must finish am. My CGPA dropped drastically and the moment they knew i was an aspiring member, they started flocking to my place to eat Morning, afternoon, night. The man that was supposed to take me for the initiation called me quietly and said i shouldnt give them food or money again and that they are hungry ayessss. Jeez ” WETIN I DON PUT MY SELF INTO” . They turned me to Nigerian Breweries . I purchased al kind of drinks for them, they call it ju shark. I purchased beer, Monkey tail, red label and all sort of assorted drinks. They call me to meet them at a popular bar known as angle 90 and i go there and meet them and they order drinks for me to pay. Half of my school fees will go into drinks and food for them. I had a complete TV and DVD set at home and i didnt even loose them to vikingsss but i lost them to black axxe members immediately i indicated interest to join. I started asking my self , ” IS THIS HOW THEY LIVE THERE LIFES AS CULTIST” . My friend was a great psychologist and he studied my every move and worries and he contoured them. ” NO WORRY, NA SO HE DEY BE, AFTER YOU FALL OUT, ALL THIS THINGS GO STOP ” He uttered. I felt relieved and afterall , all this go stop. I urged him to please make the initiation come fast as i was running out of cash and the suffocation was so much as i need to blend and be among so i could be free…

 

 

I sat down waiting for my friend to call me for initiation ceremony and like the coming of christ, i waited for the day to come but unlike the coming of christ, the day came sooner than expected. I got a call from my friend and on a monday morning and he told me initiation was on saturday and that i should buy a white singlet and boxers down. I went out and purchased the items. I later got a call on thursday instructing to remain in abraka and they will come get me on friday. I waited on friday and no one came around. I then got a call on saturday around 12 noon that i should meet them at the popular angle 90 bar. I got there and i saw different men sitting down and starring at me with anger and bitterness. I greeted them and they all echoed ” WHO BE THIS MAN ” Then my friend that was suppose to take me for initiation echoed out ” ABEG NA MY ITJ BE THAT ” . I felt relieved that he came to my rescue. Then i was ordered to get drinks for them which i did. I was then told to take a bottle and drink and forget. I took a bottle of small stout to relieve my stress. One of them came to me and said ” NO WORRY, ALL OF US PASS THROUGH THE PROCESS, NOTHING GO HAPPEN TO YOU, WE NO DIE AND SO YOU NO GO DIE ” My heart pounded fast, I murmured within my self ” AM I REALLY GOING FOR A LIFE AND DEATH JOURNEY ? “. The time came and we where asked to start moving and we got up and started the movement. I followed my friend who stopped a bike and we took the bike to a lonely bush part. The Bike stopped and we came down and continued on foot. I didnt hear a s*it and the part was quiet and lonely…. We saw a guy who walked passed us and he was one of the eye sent to check if something was happening or police was coming. Its considered a Bleep up if police should interfere with an initiation process, it might lead to rebelling and all the members in office will be asked to step down and the process of police interfering can be bloody as the ones with guns at the initiation ground may shoot directly at police men and the police men will respond killing someone of the cultist cursing pain and grief to their families back home and loved ones. Some of them struggle so hard to send those children to school and they just end up their lives in cult related issues. We got to an open field where we saw some group of men standing and facing the bush part. They where all lined up and asked to face to the bush. They where close to 40 of them. I was then asked to pull off my shirt and trousers and join them. I pulled my shirt and trousers and stood with the 40 intending members just like me and i am sure they also had their stories just like me.

This is just the beginning.
