Cultism, Is It Worth It? Two Beheaded In Cult Clash

By Ikenga Chronicles March 16, 2016

Two students of Abia State University Uturu have reportedly lost their lives as a result of reprisal cult attacks.The students, identified as Chukwuebuka Benedict Nwaigbo, a 300-level Estate Management Student, and Samuel were reportedly beheaded.

The gruesome pictures which have since gone viral on the internet paint a picture of checkmated dreams,loss of lives, and the loss of the investments of the parents on the late boys.

Cultism, which has become an integral part of Nigerian universities has been ventured into mainly by young men and women, aiming to gain protection, and be feared. Yet the number of deaths, and the gruesome manner of the deaths point to a society that has derailed, and young people who have suddenly decided to misplace their priorities. It is ironic that people join cults to seek protection, and end up being hounded by people from their own cults, for dues. This has led to many students suddenly dropping out of school as the pressure becomes too much for them to handle. There is also the issue of rival cult groups targeting these young men, and thus making it impossible for them to fully concentrate on their academics.

Basically then, the student does not get the protection he or she seeks; is open to a gruesome death; is hounded by his own mates; and ultimately, his or her academics suffer. The question from the deaths of Chukwuebuka and Samuel quite simply is; “is cultism worth the hype?”
