This book, “MY CAMPUS CULT DIARY”, conveys the ideas
and understanding that came from my observation and
reflections. The book is an independent and original research
in which the frontiers of knowledge on the topic have been
investigated and extended. The sole purpose of the book is to
contribute to the demystification of the problems, by
challenging old myth with new fact. This book was not written
to serve as a text book for students, as some tertiary institutions
lecturers had erroneously concluded, rather it is intended to
be a collection of information about the campus cult menace
for those in government, school administration, students and
parents. I do hope the readers view it from that perspective.
The book deals with the story of a medical student who
joined the campus cults and how his life took a spiral
downwards turn for the worst. The story reveals the fears,
frustrations and set-backs that are the daily companion of the
average Nigerian tertiary institution cult member. The life and
times of Sanu Sumah showed that the cult member was a victim
in an organized crime gang. The story also showed what the
average Nigerian cult member goes through in our tertiary
institutions in trying to acquire a degree.
The book has critically looked at the relationship between
the Campus Cults and the youthanize belligerent problem in
Nigeria, the mindless looting of the treasury of the nation, and
the realization that there would be no end to the youthanize
belligerent problem in Nigeria until the leaders of the country
start having milk of human kindness.
This book deals extensively on five major campus
confraternities of old, namely; the Pyrates, Buccaneers, Eiye,
Black-Axe and the Mafia Confraternities and arrived at the
conclusion that it was only the substructure operations of the
Mafia Confraternity that could have succeeded in mobilizing
mass support in communal upheaval. Therefore, this
investigation dealt more on the mode of operation of the
substructure operations of the Family Fraternity and its
resultant fall-out into splinter groups in Youthanize belligerent
problems in Nigeria. In the early 2000s, the tertiary institutions
and the Federal Government were competing against
themselves in deceiving the whole nation on the issue of the
campus cult’s menace. These tertiary institutions were busy
collecting millions of naira from the government by parading
some third rated ‘actors’ on the television as repentant campus
cult members. They paraded these actors cum campus cult
members with guns, machetes, knives and even grenades, and
the other entire arsenal that the authorities could assemble on
television to deceive the general public that they were
succeeding in its war to eradicate the tertiary institutions of
the menace of the Campus Cults, but actually what they were
doing was insulting the sensibilities of the Cult members.
The Federal Government and the tertiary institutions
authorities were only making a mockery of the whole exercise.
The only campus cult property the members had that would
convince “real” members about the seriousness of the whole
exercise was – their regalia and renouncing their cult names
and deck names. Unfortunately, we have moved a step forward
now, and the government has repeated the same script with
the mostly Ijaw Armed militants in the Niger Delta. Telling
them to drop their guns and renounce violence and all would
be well. That same approach would not work with the Kanuri
Armed Militants from the North-East of Nigeria, because they
are following the Ojukwu secessionist plan to carve out for
themselves a ‘Kanem-Bornu Islamic Republic’ made up of
territories occupied by Kanuris in Cameroon, Chad, Niger, and
Nigeria. Every government policy has a deal attached to it.
People do not have to look too far – unless the observer was a
The idea of writing about the campus cults and my
involvement with two of them (Black-Axe Movement and
Buccaneers Confraternity) was actually that of my late father.
He had told me in 1985 that I should write about the Campus
Cults since he knew I kept a diary about my involvement in
campus cults. My father was so sure of himself that people
would be keen on hearing my side of the story. That was when
my father told me about a chap during his graduate years at
the University of Indiana, Bloomington Campus, USA, in the
1960s that had spent a considerable number of years at the
school. The chap did finally graduate and wrote about his
experiences in a book and lots of people including my father
benefited from reading his story. I am not that Bloomington
guy, but an ex-Nigerian Universities Student that mistakenly
ventured into the Campus Confraternity out of curiosity and
pig-headedness and by the time I realized what I had got
MYself into, I was already ensnared as one of the campus cult
automatons; and when I was able to extricate myself from their
shackles, I was already suffering from an inferiority complex
caused by shame and regrets.
The catalyst I got for starting my work on this book was an
“old Buccaneers signals (notification of meeting) (1988) of
Moda Ship deck” that just fell out from God knows where,
when I was actually searching for something totally
unconnected with campus cults.It was strange, because
Buccaneers signals or any signal from any cult for that matter
were not kept but destroyed after reading. I must have received
dozens of those signals during my stay with my two campus
cult groups. But this particular one managed to have survived
all those years, and I still have that original signal written in
red ink on a piece of yellow paper till today.
And it read thus: -
