A suspected cultist arrested in Lagos, Tobi Adegoke said he only joined the Black Axe cult group to be able to meet singer Davido.
Tobi, 25, said he had been assured of meeting the singer who he was told was a member.
He claimed he has dreams of being a musician himself, and a meeting with Davido, real name David Adeleke, would have changed his life.
Tobi was among 27 suspected cultists arrested from various parts of Lagos and paraded on Wednesday.
“I am an Aiye member (Black Axe). I have been in the cult for about two years. I was told that Davido was a member and if I joined, I will be able to meet him,” he told newsmen.
“It was the guy who initiated me that said so. He said he worked for Davido and that it will be easy to access. But since I joined, I have not met Davido. They told me I’ll become a very popular musician but see where I am now.
“I am renouncing my membership of Aiye. I will never belong to any cult again. They should look at my face very well. They will never see me in their midst again. I lived at Oniru in Lekki. I used to be a domestic help.
“Since I joined, I have not done anything bad. I have not killed anybody. I just wanted to be a famous musician.”
The suspects are currently being held in police custody.
