The Lagos State Police Command paraded a female member of a notorious cult group, Mariam Abiola; after she was arrested for belonging to the Eiye confraternity.
The 20-year-old Mariam Abiola, who is said to be the sniper for the confraternity, made a startling revelation on how she used to kill members of rival cult groups and any other person for a fee of ₦10,000.
Abiola told reporters at a parade in Lagos yesterday that she has killed four persons since joining the cult group after fleeing her parent’s home in Abeokuta, Ogun state. She killed the four persons wearing Hijab.
Narrating how she joined the cult group, Abiola, who claimed to be a secondary school drop-out, said:
“I ran away from my house in Lafenwa Abeokuta to Lagos, to look for work. I met one Mr. Sodiq when I got to Lagos. Mr. Sodiq took me to his house at Ilasamaja area of Lagos. He was the one that introduced me to the Eiye cult.”
“He took me to a herbalist, who gave me a black substance to eat. He told me that their work was about killing people. He gave me a gun and taught me how to shot. I learnt how to shoot by shooting on the wall. I shot on the wall three times before I learnt how to shoot. Brother Sodiq gave three of us guns and pictures of persons to kill. He trained three of us. Two boys and myself.”
“I have killed four persons. Each time that I want to go for the killing, I usually wear a white gown and a white head scarf (Hijab). Brother Sodiq usually showed us the target’s house.
“We go to the house at night. The two boys will scale the fence and open the gate for me. We go straight to the apartment and shoot at the target at close range. None of our targets survived. I killed one guy at Fadeyi area of Lagos, another one at Hassan in Ilasa, one at Aje.
“Each time we killed someone, brother Sodiq would pay me N10,000 but he would pay the others N20,000 each. I do not feel bad after killing anyone because I see it as a job I paid to do.”
