Student cultism is on the rise in Africa especially in the West African nation of Nigeria. The practice seems to be very common in the various institutions of higher learning in the country.
A very disturbing story making the rounds on social media is that a senior high school student has lost his life following a severe b£ating he received from his colleagues for refusing to join their cult.
The victim who is said to be twelve years of age met his untimely exit from this world after he blatantly refused to give in to his friends demands.
A cousin to the deceased, identified with Twitter handle @perrisonoromoni took to the micro blogging platform to announce the sad event.
In his words: “This is my 12 years old cousin that was b£aten to d£ath at a school that cost over 1 million naira”.
Explaining further to a comment under the tweet seeking clarification, he continued; “Yes o. They tried to put him in cult, but he refused and they k!lled him.”
