Black Axe: Nigeria's Deadliest Cult

BBC Africa

Overview

No longer an isolated phenomenon, Nigeria has developed a serious cult problem. Nigeria's most powerful and deadly cult is now infiltrating politics and civilized society, even holding influence over a handful of top politicians and the Nigerian military.

Gbolahan Peter Macjob is a Nigerian journalist, comedian, author, and martial artist who grew up in Lagos and witnessed cult killings firsthand. After 20 years away, Macjob returned to his native land to try and make sense of Nigeria's cultism epidemic.

Black Axe: Nigeria's Deadliest Cult is a BBC Africa Eye special report documentary on the student fraternity turned global terrorist cult known as Black Axe. MacJob returned to Nigeria and risked his life to conduct interviews with Black Axe executives and assassins as well as politicians suspected of cult involvement to bring international attention to this disturbing issue.

"Thousands and thousands of young men have died like this in the last four decades, and nobody remembers them, it's like they died in vain."
