Origin of Cultism in Nigeria and examples of some cult groups in Nigeria

ORIGIN OF CULTISM IN NIGERIA In 1952, a group of seven students from the University College Ibadan formed the Pyrates Confraternity. They called themselves the Magnificent Seven. They observed that the university was populated with wealthy students who were associated with colonial powers. Those who were poor were struggling in every manner to be accepted by the more advantaged students. Social life was based on tribalism. This prompted them to form confraternity. Membership was open to any promising male student regardless of tribe or race, but selection was stringent and most applicants were denied. For almost 20 years the Pyrates were the only confraternity on Nigerian Campuses. In the late 1960s, the Pyrates registered themselves as National Association of SeaDogs (NAS) and the confraternity extended off campus. Another confraternity known as Buccaneers Confraternity was registered as National Association of Sea Lords. This division was as a result of assertion of leadership of t

Cultism in The Country Nigeria Today

It is a practice which apart from being carried out in institutions/schools, has also gone viral into creeks and streets. Cultism also known as confraternity as they used to be known were established for the purpose of overseeing the welfare of less privileged students in higher institutions. It was also established for the purpose of protecting the interests of students who could not march with the wealthy students in school or for the purpose of maintaining academic excellence among members. The pioneer members of the confraternity used nick names like "cup in blood" and other names like that. After some time, some members of the cult had to be expelled from the confraternity and this caused a break up from the mother cult or confraternity and new ones emerged. Since then, there has been several cults or confraternities across the country, Nigeria. *Meaning of C

"Alleged" Careless Shooting by Nigerian Police

An EVB reader writes in; "There was traffic around Alhaji Masha road, close to Adegoke and the Police wanted to clear the road. Instead of them to come down from their van to control the traffic like civilized police men or even blow their siren to alert people to give way. They resulted to firing their guns carelessly! They did not even take care to shoot only in the air, they were careless. Then, one of the stray bullets hit a shop around the area and my brother works in that shop! Thankfully the bullet only hit the wall, but it just could have easily been somebody's head! How can the people placed to protect us be our nightmare?

Finally! Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux Tie The Knot

TMZ is reporting that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are married after being engaged for years. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux had a surprise wedding at their Bel Air mansion last night -- telling all their celeb pals it was just a birthday party, but then did the deed, instead. Our sources say Jen told friends she was throwing a surprise 44th bday bash for Justin. Great cover, and friends like Howard Stern, Chelsea Handler, Sia, Lisa Kudrow and John Krasinski showed up - but TMZ knew something was up Wednesday afternoon when we spotted a very wedding-ish cake going into the house. It had two muppet-like characters -- male and female -- on the top. If it was just a birthday party for Justin ... why have 2 people on the cake? Second major clue -- an actual man of the cloth! A pastor with bible in hand was walking into the house. We're told a giant shed was built over the past week to hide all the furniture and party supplies -- which were set up in the backyard yester

The Lagos state police command yesterday 5th August, averted what would have been a major civil disturbance at Iyana-Oba bus stop through the timely intervention of the Area Commander in charge of the axis.

An attempt by miscreants to take advantage of the situation to foment trouble was averted, as the Police leadership employed a combination of Alternative Dispute Resolution and Community Policing tactics to calm frayed nerves. The Police NCO has since been arrested and detained, pending the commencement of disciplinary procedures against him, while the injured citizen who was rushed to the hospital by the Police is receiving treatment. In a similar vein, the command has arrested

Reasons why teenagers mast*rbate

Hi friends it's I esker and here today am sharing my thoughts on why people especially teenagers mast*rbate and why they get addicted to it. 1. Addiction : When people (especially guys) are addicted to doing "it"  *naughty look" always with their partners, in the absence of their partners, they are not usually able to restrain the urge and as such they tend to do it with themselves. 2. Lack of Courage : This is very common among very young guys mostly teenagers. When they see girls that they like, they are not man enough to ask her out because of lack of courage and all they can do is to keep thinking about her always and when the thought of such girls last for long in their minds they begin to have an urge and later end up doing "it". 3. Lust : This is common to both genders. These set of people have a very bad mind always thinking of how to have $*x all day and night and any sight of the opposite gender sparks an electric current through their veins

The last time the nigerian army got new weapons was back in 2006

Immediate past Chief of Defence staff, Alex Badeh is not done talking about the lack of equipment in the Nigerian army. In an interview with Channels TV, Alex Badeh said the last time the Nigerian army received new equipment was in 2006 and that the Nigerian military flies the oldest fighter jets in the whole world. He's now saying all this after he was removed as Chief of Defence Staff. I see! "We found out that we had fifth columnist in the military that were leaking information to terrorist and then we also had challenges of serviceable equipment. If I go down memory lane, I think the last time any piece of equipment was bought for the Nigerian army was in 2006 and how many were they? They were few. In fact they were few and if we go way back to 1993, from then on, soldiers were not allowed to even go to range to go and practice. So a soldier that is not practicing how to use his gun, what kind of military are you going to have? So those were the challenges we had so when

Woman Allegedly Kills Father and Daughter Because of Her Boyfriend

A 25-year-old mom allegedly murdered her own father and her daughter, hid their remains in a neighbor's shed, then made up a story about them running off to Georgia. Cheyanne Jessie killed her 50-year-old father Mark Weekly and her 6-year-old daughter Meredith, then waited more than a week before reporting them missing, detectives say. The pair's remains were found in plastic boxes on a neighbor's property in Lakeland, Florida, late Saturday night, some 200 yards from Weekly's home. Investigators claim she killed Meredith because she was getting in the way of her relationship with a new boyfriend. It is not clear why she would have killed her father as well. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said the bodies were found after officers smelled the stench of death. Both were said to have stab wounds and gunshot wounds. Officials said the two were last seen on July 18, though Jessie did not report them missing until this Saturday. Jessie's story seemed suspicious from

Former Niger Delta Minister, 2 Accountants Questioned Over Missing N1.5bn

The amount in question was reportedly taken in two withdrawals on the instructions of senior political aide, claiming to be working on the directives of a top pr

Leopard that wounded 5 Indians Beaten And Burnt To Death

A leopard that injured five villagers in a savage attack in India has been beaten to death with sticks and burned. Forest authorities said that the shocking incident took place in the Kalgaon area, in the Sivasagar district of the northeastern Assam state, as the villagers were collecting firewood. The 7-year-old, fully-grown leopard is reported to have suddenly charged the group in a desperate attack. The villagers said that to ‘save their lives’, they attacked the savage big cat with sticks and beat it to death. 5 of the group were injured in the attack. Indian leopards are under threat of extinction due to poaching for their skin. Villagers also regularly kill the cats when they stray near settlements. A female leopard was beaten to death just weeks ago in a village in West Bengal’s Purulia district. Villagers were reported to have spotted the animal near the village and attempted to chase it. But in its fear, the animal ran into the village instead of away from it, and ente

Beggar strangles msn into unconsciousness and then steals from him

A violent beggar choked a West Side man into unconsciousness in Central Park’s Ramble in a hellish mugging that underscores the famed park’s skyrocketing robbery stats. “If you scream I’ll kill you,” were the last words the 53-year-old victim heard Thursday night as the fiend’s arm tightened around his throat and he collapsed to the ground, cops said. Upon regaining consciousness about half an hour later, the victim found that his wallet was gone. His backpack, which held glasses, keys, gift cards, jewelry and cash, was also gone, cops said. News of the brutal mugging had park-goers on edge Saturday. “I am hungry. Do you have any money?” the suspect asked. The victim tried at first to brush the beggar off, telling him he had no cash and walking away. But the mugger, who appeared to be around 35 years old, 5-foot-8 and weighing 160 pounds, jumped him from behind. He was still at large Saturday night. NY Post

CEO Who set his minimum wage at $70,000 hits hard times

3 months ago, Mr. Price, 31, announced he was setting a new minimum salary of $70,000 at his Seattle credit card processing firm, Gravity Payments, and slashing his own million-dollar pay package to do it, but has fallen on hard times as a result of his bold move. He wasn’t thinking about the current political clamor over low wages or the growing gap between rich and poor, he said. He was just thinking of the 120 people who worked for him and, let’s be honest, a bit of free publicity. The idea struck him when a friend shared her worries about paying both her rent and student loans on a $40,000 salary. He realized a lot of his own employees earned that or less. Yet almost overnight, a decision by one small-business man in the northwestern corner of the country became a swashbuckling blow against income inequality. The move drew attention from around the world — including from some outspoken skeptics and conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, who smelled a socialist agenda — but most were
