Musa Waheed is a native of Ijagbo in Offa Local government area of Kwara State. From his seeming innocent looks to his frail disposition, nothing gave him away as a cultist, let alone a hitman who has sent rival members who crossed his part to the great beyond. Besides, he is a barber and a hard-working gentleman, who was described as cool-headed and compassionate. But his recent arrest only confirmed that indeed, facial expression can be deceptive.
In an encounter with 22-year old Musa Waheed, he made a startling revelation on his activities and role as a cultist. His story is such that sends shivers down one’s spine and his bravado at unleashing mayhem could best be described in ‘Odunlade Adekola ’ movies.
One of such revelations was how he gunned sixteen rival members to death, as he claimed they were responsible for the death of the herbalist that provided charms for him.Musa, who hails from kwara state, confessed that he was the hitman of the infamous Aiye confraternity. His story is not like the usual, but, a show of desperation.Further disaster by him was curtailed by the iron hands of the Anti-Cultism Unit of the Lagos State Police Command that has continued to record great strides in the fight against cultism in the state.
He revealed that he was initiated to the Black Axe confraternity in the year 2013, and was the group’s butcher before his arrest.According to him ‘I have carried out several assignments to fight or kill members of other rival groups. I killed sixteen members of the Eiye confraternity last year between Eleven Months. I was on a mission to avenge the death of our Babalawo (herbalist), who initiated me into the group.
The death of ‘Babalawo’ led to a killing spree of members of Black Axe and their rival, Eiye. First, late Babalawo’s squad at Ikoyi avenged his death by killing a member of the Eiye confraternity who was also one of its strong men.In retaliation, Eiye group stormed the Alaguntan squad, killed some of our members and injured others.
Among those killed in Black axe, was a guy we called Solari. As if that wasn’t enough, after some weeks, Eiye struck again and killed two of our strong members Bravoh and his friend, Dotman.When news of their death filtered in, some of our members fled to Ikota, but the Eiye men there, saw one of them inside a bus and with the aid of traffic congestion, our member was dragged out of the commercial vehicle and killed.
His corpse was dumped at Chevyview, in Chevron. Again, another Black Axeman was killed, with his body yet to be recovered”.When I heard of Babalawo’s death and others that were killed, I took it upon myself to avenge their death. I called one of my friends, Tundeleski, who is also a strong member of Aiye and usually supplied us guns when needed
