A young Nigerian man identified as Chinedu Emenike has found himself in police custody in Abia state as a suspected cultist.
Punch reported that the culprit was arrested by the internal security of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture in Umudike and handed over to police operatives in the Umuahia area command.
Emenike, a former student of Rivers State Polytechnic as he claimed, confessed to joining the Aye fraternity, due to his lack of funds and hoped to use the connection to secure employment upon graduation. He however dropped out, moved to Umuahia and maintained membership of the cult group because of the benefit he hooked his future on.
His hopes and aspirations however came crashing when he was caught and arrested. The young man was paraded by Abia State Commissioner of Police, Mr Anthony Ogbizi, where he confessed that the devil pushed him to be a cultist. he also revealed that his reason for joining was hinged on him searching for a means to survive.
He said: "I am a member of the Aye Confraternity and a former student of the Rivers State Polytechnic. I joined the cult group so that our men can help me with job upon graduation. But I did not graduate because of money. My parents did not have enough money to sponsor me through school, that was why I dropped out.
Chinedu also shared how he was caught in the act, he said: “It is the work of the devil. I just went to celebrate with my friends that just finished their final year exams in Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, when the school security men saw me and found incriminating items on me.
