In line with daily tips academic focus will look at the history, and nature of cults in Nigerian University System.

2 Major cult organization in Nigeria

1. Buccaneers
2. Pyrate Confraternity, aka Alora sea dogs

1. The BUCCANEERS secret cult

The Buccaneers splited from the Pyrates. The rebellion of the Thirty was led by Dr. Bolaji Carew, former provost of the lagos College of Education whose cult name is “Rica Ricardo”.

He was also the Supreme Eye or Sole Patron and Spiritual Head. The open challenge to the Sea Dogs is emblazoned in Buccaneer logo”Odas is Odas”,”A dog has a Master and the Master is a Lord”, “Blud for Blud”, etc. On its Aniversary, 1982, the Buccaneer Confraternity, Sea lords, became “Buccaneer Association of Nigeria”(BAN). By that time, the Vikings Confraternity was formed in opposition to the Sea Dogs and Sea lords.

This was as a result of the tendency by Pyrates to hound the Palm Wine Drinkers and to parade as the only “frat” in Nigeria.

In I977, for instance, the Pyrates disrupted the Convention of the Palmites at Nsukka. The fight led to disciplinary action based on the recommendations of the Afigbo Committee. Conclusions like this emerged: ¤ Between 1982-92, the implosion of secret cults took a completely different character. It became violent.

For instance while the pyrates had moved into the six old Universities before 1980, the “Buckets”, as others call the Buccaneers, moved into University of Lagos, 1973, University of Benin, 1978 and crossed the Niger into University of Calaber in 1980.

Calabar deck pioneered into University of Nigeria, 1985 and into other institutions as a part of the wildfire proliferation thereafter. Indead from 1984, Pyrates claimed to have cut off the Students wing.

Buccaneers did so in 1987. These reactions pointed to the rapid proliferation of secret cults into all manners of institutions. Worse the indication is that more groups are forming.

For example, Security agents investigating reported cases of theft in late 1990, discovered documents of a new cult in the University of Nigeria at an embryo stage. Exhibit included:

1. The proposal of a new deadly organization called ‘CAPPA VENDETTA’

2. The draft constitution

3. The Emblem

4. The Declaration form.

Five students had completed the form. All of them were members of existing cult and were from the same community in Abia State.

This trend bothered the old groups. The Alumin wanted respectability. In BAN newsletter, of July 1987 entitled “Deck Submerge”: “due to the recent spate of embrassing, undisciplined and violent acts Deckhands. Grand Eye Council has decided to submerge all decks permanent for now.


All Galleon Masters merge desirable deckhands with fridgates as observers” BAN also attempted to use public relations techniques to create new image, which backfired as the Warri frigate protested in a letter to the Grand Eye: Alora, lords of warri frigate wish to bring to your attention, this issues. Buccaneers are well noted for their secrecy, which is our pride. But now the only secret left is the content of grand pa’s Chest.

Have we became palmites which every Tom, Harry and Dick knows their Hierarchal structure?.

Obviously, both Pyrates and Buccaneers were posturing and hiding their new identities as secret cults.

2. Pyrate Confraternity aka Sea Dogs

The Pyrate Confraternity Started out in 1952 at the University College, Ibadan Oyo State Nigeria, the group of Seven was led by professor Wole Soyinka, they percived themselves as cultural nationalists. Echoes of this grand sentiment could still be heard in the objectives of the Sea Dogs: “against moribund convention, tribalism, for humanistic ideas and comradeship and chivalry” they insisted on an African content in a White-oriented Campus.

But this halycon days soon passed by when the Buccaneers splited from them.

The key factor is that the nature of tertiary education in Nigeria changed dramatically in the decades. This article is part of the series of posts on cults in Nigeria University system

Membership of Cults what is involved

Membership of Cults what is involved

If the activities are like the dynamics/power-house of cultism, the organizational structure is the architecture of cultism.

So, who is the member’s cults in Africa especially Nigeria? Who can become members? Any student who is not physically disabled or born-again Christian is qualified to be a member. Variously called civilians, Jews, lubbers and many nicknames every student is a target for recruitment. It has been said, however, that secret cults target the children of the wealthy, the professionals and highly-placed official in the society. It is surmised that the family name and influence would be used to protect a scion from dragging their name to the gutters.

Moreover, such members will be able to produce the “Lalas” or “fingers for chopping turbo”. This is true but quite often members come from poor families especially those with an urge for upward mobility. Because of an inner urge to subvert, the cults target intelligent young people as if determined to lure them away from concentrating on academics.

An example of influence-peddling could be garnered from the following report:
“From- B.E Romania

On Feb 13, 1990, there was a musical show at the school auditorium. During the course of the show, a canister of tear gas was thrown into the auditorium by some boys who are members of the Viking Confraternity. Consequently, their names were given to the Chief Security Officer by students and the Security started investigating the incident.

On Feb. 21, 1990, a lord, Tiger Tanaka, was attacked by some members of the Vikings Confraternity across the school gate.

Apparently, the security investigated the attack. The Viking boys lied and accused the Sea Lord of attacking them. A was set up and certain lords were invited including Acid De Dagger, Jaguar de Nana, Dirty Koroko, Simple De Komplex, Virgin de Breaker, Tiger Tanaka, and others, the report continues
“On April 12, 1990, expulsion letters were handed out to the lords that appeared. The lords consulted some lawyers Obunsen, R.I Esq and Nwakanwa, B. Esq. on this issue of expulsion and proceedings against the school were started. Dirty Konoko’s father had earlier on met the head of the pane, a Professor who is a friend of his.”

Finally, the cult lords won and the expulsion was quashed. “Alora/GE, right now everything is under”.
Surely, the membership of Dirty Konoko proved most helpful in rescuing the operations of Vikings and Buccaneers in Abia State University, Uturu, in 1990. The use of influential people, parents, uncles, patrons and suck-like to buffer the cults is a most interesting phenomenon. It is as if these young people explo4t the inner contradiction of the social system to subvert it. Since the culture of the “Big Man” engages in influence peddling, corrupt value system as the touchstone of their anti-structure expression. Adults are manipulated to call black, white and vice versa.

Thus, the Chairman of a Panel, a University Law Professor subverts the decisions of his Panel. Quite often, they target students who are politically conscientized or under the tutelage of left-wing academics people who are angry with the system and who would yield easily to subversive rhetoric and practice.
Moreover, it is known that the children of the wealthy are prone to be indisciplined and keen on escapades.

Membership in the new cults is no longer based on good academic standing. The Jaw-Jaw (interview) exercise is used to gather extracurricular information on the corruptible social network of individual, experience in delinquency and any other resources which could be used, for instance, experience in occultism and herbal medicine. A “civilian” is someone who intends to join the subversive squad.

How To Recognize Cult Groups signs that make up Cult-gang Identity

How To Recognize Cult Groups signs that make up Cult-gang Identity

The cult world is a reconstructed world. It is invented to run subterranean, below the real world and purveying a different ideology. A new identity shrouds the old one. Is there a binding cord between Rugged Satan, Wined Wizard, Viprous Angel and the real persons? Is there a transference of spirit? Similarly, the sense of community is symbolized with distinctive colors and dress coder.

How to recognize cults in Africa and The World

For example the Eiye a secret cult in Africa uses sky-blue jeans, white T-shirt, armless jean Jacket and black beret. On Fridays they wear black T shirt. Pyrates are noted for their red dashiki (a Nigerian dress with Hausa origin) embossed with skull and gross bow motif. The Vikings use long robes like medieval Vikings. “Grandpa’s shirt” for Buccaneers emphasize rank.

The Black Axemen appear officially in black trouser, black beret, black shoes and stockings, black waist band and white short. The black lords spot yellow strands on their black beret. The Mafia wear a long black gown with hood. Symbolists would research into the significance of the colors – black, read, yellow and blue.

How do these reflect self-perception and activities of the cults? The emphasis here is mainly on the matter of identity. They manifest symbols of identity which is underscored with new coded language. Secret cults are very creative in coining terminologies. Some are used by all cultists while many are peculiar. The Classical groups have a more elaborate coded language structure. Each struggles to use coded language to maintain a canopy of secrecy, a shared enclosure which is warm, restrictive and bonding. Instead of providing a glossary, the effort here is to weave the terminology into the narrative discourse.

The single quality is that the terms are poignant and descriptive. Some are derivative; for instance “to sing” is group or divulge information. The Mafia world coined this. Obscenity abounds because relation is of the matrix, wool and weft. Language is shared symbols of meaning and a sign of belonging. It breads familiarity, companionship and trust. Identity is further cultured with non-verbal language such as handshake.

The Buccaneers shake hands by clawing each other on central nerve of the wrist, with one finger. The Pyrates do the same with four fingers. Others parody Black American’s Black Panthers’ style. Each group invents rituals which embody the group’s effort to weave members into a solidarity with deep religious moorings.

The leave of religious practice varies.

The Classical group deny any religious involvement beyond the liturgy at initiation and meetings. Others, however, allege that individuals could join. Some of the Emergent types and Newbreeds tend towards allegiance and patronage of shrines because of the danger of living a violent ethics. The extensive resort to traditional religion is, indeed, a strategy for encapsulation.

It at once breeds fear among members, and panders a sense of security, protection and bond of unity. It informs the theory of obligation. Organisational structure is the architecture of power. It is basically power-arrangement and legitimation, the berthing of authority precisely because authority is legitimized power. Power itself is neutral and only perceived through its activity, something akin to relationship between air and wind. Wind is air-in-motion.

So, the only legitimate questions of power are who holds power, for whom and to what end? Who holds power in the secret cults and for whom? What is the concept of power and authority among them? I think the secret of sporting cult members like Illuminati, and co is through their identity.

In my next article power will be looked into, how power is weaved in the fabric of cults, I suggest you subscribe now because it may be posted and tagged as NTBB!
