The teenagers who finished their secondary education this year, have been reported dead in Kabba, Kogi State, in mysterious circumstance.

Vanguard  reports that their deaths were in connection with cult initiation by a confraternity in the town.

When contacted, the parents of the deceased teenagers said they were too devastated to speak to the press but that they did not want the incident reported for fear of police harassment.

A source, who craved anonymity, said the boys died of complications which resulted from drinking a “hard substance,” which was part of the initiation, mentioning that the boys voluntarily sought to join the confraternity.

According to a source:

“From what I gathered, one of the boys was given a very hard concoction to drink during his initiation into Eiye confraternity by the leaders of the cult group.

“The substance, which was laden with very hard drugs, led to the death of the poor boy.”

However, a new twist has emerged in the controversy surrounding the teenagers’ deaths.

Another account has it that the boys took performance enhancing drugs which overstretched their systems leading to their demise.

According to this account, four teenagers were involved in taking the concoction known in local parlance asSukudie.
