Obi Adegoke, a 25-year-old suspected member of the Black Axe cult has confessed that he was lured into the group with promises that he would meet music star, Davido.
Adegoke, who was among 27 suspected cultists paraded by the Police Commissioner Imohimi Edgal on Wednesday said he was an upcoming music artist.
He said he believed meeting Davido would have helped his music career.
He said: “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 join, I will be able to meet him.
“It was the guy who initiated me that said so. He said he worked for Davido and that it will be easy 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.”
Further speaking, Adegoke said he regretted being on the fast lane, adding that if he had remained steadfast, he would not have landed into trouble.
