A 20-year-old boy, Sunday, has drowned in a river at Lake View Estate, Amuwo -Odofin, Lagos, in his attempt to avoid being forcefully initiated into Icelander Confraternity, by some youths, Vanguardngr reports.

.

Residents of phase 1 and 2 of the estate are presently gripped with trepidation following activities of members of the cult group as they freely brandish weapons and molest residents at will.

The group was also accused of dragging youths to the riverside where they are forcefully initiated. It was learned that anyone that refuses to be initiated will be given an ultimatum by the group to either leave the estate or die.

Sunday was alleged to have been dragged to the waterside, last Monday, alongside his friend, Alabi, by one Tunde, popularly known as T-money. Tunde and members of his gang allegedly began the forceful initiation process by subjecting their victims to a session of battery.

At a point, Tunde was alleged to have brought out a gun and threatened to shoot them if they insisted on not joining the cult group. It was then, according to reports, that Sunday resisted, and he was shoved by a member of Tunde’s group.

In the process, he jumped into the river and drowned. While the group concentrated on Sunday, his friend, Alabi, managed to escape and later related what transpired to concerned residents of the estate.

Sunday’s bloated body was later retrieved by policemen from Festac Division. At the moment, the cult members have fled the estate. Policemen are said to have combed the estate severally for their arrest, without luck.
