The Anambra state police command has arrested Ifechukwu Atunanya, a 16-year-old secondary school dropout after she was allegedly caught having s*x with over 52 young men inside a bush in what looked like an initiation ceremony.
According to Daily Post report, the suspects, who were apprehended inside a bush in Awka were members of the Supreme Vikings Confraternity, conducting initiation for new members.
During interrogation, Ifechukwu claimed she had to travel to Anambra from Abuja just to witness the initiation of new members and she had been forced to sleep with every male member of the cult as part of her initiation.
“I joined them three months ago and during my initiation; I was forced to have s*x with every registered male member of the cult present that night. I was given sedatives so as not to feel what they were doing. It was not easy, but I bore the pain.
“The day we were initiated, I was the only girl in their midst. I was determined to be a successful member. I was further convinced to stay because I discovered that they were more honorable men than the other cult groups.
“I am sorry for myself and would love to be given the opportunity to go back to school,” she sobbed.
Another member, identified as Ugochukwu Agbazuo, explained that they are all undergraduates of various institutions in Anambra, except for their national leaders who are all graduates working across the country and normally assists them to secure arms.
On the issue of rape, Ugochukwu said the females could not go through the rigorous process during the initiation and so their leaders suggested the best way to get them under oath is for every registered member to have s*x with her during initiation.
“She would be given sedatives during the process so that she will not physically feel the pain. Ifechukwu’s case was better because we were only 52 registered males present on the day of her initiation. All of our female members were raped,” he pointed out.
Confirming the incident, the state commissioner of police, Hosea Karma said the police had gotten an intelligence tip-off that the cult members and their new entrants were in a bush performing some rituals.
According to him, the suspects confirmed that every male member of the cult will sleep with every prospective female member as part of their initiation ritual.
“This they did in order to secure their oath of secrecy and it was during the raid we arrested ifechukwu,” Karma stated.
He listed some of the items recovered to include guns, machetes and several wraps of Indian hemp.
