Fayose signs death penalty bill as N1m bounty placed on EKSU cultists

Fayose has passed the death sentence bill and the one million Naira bounty placed on the head of the cultists still stands.


Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has signed a bill seeking the death sentence for any secret cult member in the state.

The decision to establish a capital punishment backed by law was informed in October when cultists in Ekiti State University went on a rampage killing one another.

On Monday, October 23, a student Ojo Segun was attacked by suspected cultists at a Salon, where he worked as a hairstylist

His death reportedly led to a confrontation between two cult groups, Aiye Confraternity a.k.a ‘Black Axe’ and Eiye Confraternity.  One person was killed in the process and his body was abandoned by the roadside.

Barely a week after the attack another student whose name was given as Ayodele Temilade was hacked to death.

The killing of these students prompted the state governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose to sign a bill proposing death sentence for secret cult members in all tertiary institutions in the state on Monday, November 20.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, November 1, the governor in a series of tweet announced that his administration would bring an end to cultism in Ekiti State by passing a bill that will provide a sentence for cultists.

Fayose went further to promise that anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the cultists responsible for the murder of two students of EKSU will be given N1m.

The death sentence bill has been passed and the one million Naira bounty placed on the head of the cultists still stands.

So, if you have information about the cultists responsible for the death of the students call or send SMS to the number in the governor’s tweet below.

One million Naira still awaits anyone with information about the cultists.
Meanwhile, Nigerian students have reacted to the death sentence law passed on November 20 as many believe the law is too harsh for students cultists while others think it is ideal.
