“I gunned down four people because they killed my Babalawo” is the shocking reason a Noturious cultist has given in his defense against his crime and they are not just his only kills. He has eliminated several others too.
The vicinity choked on two smells, the smell of death and regrets as he approached with his local pistol, snatching the lives of his victims and watching them fall helplessly to their death. Most of his victims were mostly under 25 yrs of Age.
Indentified as Kabiru Ahmed, his story one that sends shivers down the spine of those that know him or must have encountered him, a story that should properly freak you out if you are quiet conversant with imaginative mind.
Kabiru , 32yrs old self-confessed hit man of the infamous Aye confraternity, could have caused more harm, more deaths, if he had not be roughhandled and nabbed by Anti-cultism unit of the Lagos state police command.
He was initiated into the confraternity in 2010 and was their Executioner prior to his arrest. According to him;
‘I have carried out several assignments to fight or kill other rivals for my group. I killed four members of the Eiye confraternity last year, after they killed our Babalawo (spiritual leader), the person who initiated me into the group.
Revealing how a Killing spree ensued after their Babalawa was murdered by rival cultist, Kabiru said;
‘after Babalawo was killed, his squad at Apapa avenged his death by killing one member of the Eiye. It happened that the person they killed was a strong member in Eiye group, so Eiye members had a meeting and after that, they stormed the Apapa squad and killed and injured some members of Black axe.
Among those killed from Black axe, was a guy we called Bebeto. As if that wasn’t enough, after some weeks, they struck again, and killed two of our strong members, named Angola and his friend, Shekpe.’
‘When the News broke out about the killings, some of our members ran to Fadeyi, but the Eiye guys saw one of them inside a bus as a result of traffic congestion, they dragged him out and killed him, and dumped his body at Ojurin Fadeyi area. Another Episode took place, when another Black axe man was killed, and we are yet to recover his dead body.’
Anger And Vengeance – Kabiru
‘’When I heard of Babalawo’s death and the several others that were killed, I took it upon myself to avenge their deaths. I called one of my friends who will call Amaru, who also is a strong member of Aye, and usually supplies guns for those that needed.
I told him I needed a gun urgently, and he said it will cost me Twenty five thousand naira for the kind of gun I needed.
A Tailor By Day, Serial Killer By Night
I saved up some money from my tailoring work, and sent it to Amaru to help me purchase the gun, and he bought it, and handed it to me. And that was how I began my mission.’’
Killing by will
‘’One day, I was in a restaurant eating at Ebute-meta when I overheard a guy talking his friend about a party taking place at a night club in Ebute Meta, and organized by members of Eiye group. Immediately I heard it, I made up my mind to strike that night.
So, I immediately went to get my gun and headed straight to the venue of the party. When I got there, I waited outside for some time, and when I saw a group of Eiye members emerging, I went close them, and shot one of them. Immediately, everyone scattered, and I ran away.’’
‘’The second and third people I killed were during a street fight between my group and Eiye group. We entered their area and a fight broke out, and I shot one of them, and the other was stabbed.’’
‘’The fourth person I killed was on one faithful night, a member of my group led me to the street of the Eiye guy at Fadeyi and I shot him.’’
Kabiru At The End of Road
‘’I started hearing about my name in the area, and people were suspecting in connection to some cult activities going on in the area.
So, I told my mum that something was fishy, but I told her I wanted to leave the area for a while. I stopped relating with other members of my group to avoid further suspicion, but it was too late.
I was in my house when some police men came around to pick me in connection to a recent fight, I wasn’t part of the fight, but, unfortunately, I was mentioned among other cultists.’’
