Nigerian activist, Harrison Gwamnishu has alerted the public on an alleged cult initiation of students in some primary and secondary schools in Asaba, Delta State.
Gwamnishu, who made this known on his social media pages on Wednesday, May 24, 2023, said the initiation process known as “snake bite” has allegedly been performed on 61 students in a private school in Asaba.
Sharing some videos and a picture of the marks on the students, he urged parents to keep a close eye on their children.
“The video of the snake BITE initiation in Asaba. We identified 61 Primary/Secondary School students in a private school in Asaba. They don’t use stones or razors. It’s paper and incantation,” he wrote.
”Check your child if she or he has this mark. If yes, it’s a mark of initiation into cultism. The mark is called a “snake bite” Check your children now. It’s happening in schools. This is happening already in some secondary schools in Asaba, Delta State,”
In an update, he said he has tendered all the evidence to the State Ministry of Education for further investigation.
“On the student snake bite trend. We went to the Ministry of Education office in Asaba and tendered all evidence. They instructed us to write a letter to the office and that they will investigate it. The school name with more than 61 students with snake bite marks is Divine Ambassadors Group of Schools located at 74 Road Asaba,” he wrote.
“Please take care of your children. I still want to inform everyone that I received calls threatening to deal with me and that I should delete the video and never talk about snake bite. Can the Government intervene immediately and get to the root of this all? These are children and some thought it was just a GAME.”
