Detectives at Illassamaja Police station, led by Divisional Police Officer, Titilayo Oriyomi, recently arrested a self confessed hit girl of the Eiye Fraternity who kills her victims for N10,000.
Eiye is one of the deadly secrete cults prevalent in Nigeria’s institution of higher learning. However, they are alleged to have moved their recruitment to secondary schools.
The girl, Miriam Abiola, always dressed in her islamic Hijab, was arrested with two locally made revolver pistols, two live cartridges and nine pieces of 9mm live ammunition..
Earlier, other members of the gang, including the herbalist that prepares charms for them, has been previously arrested.
With no iota of remorse, Abiola has explained that she ran away from home.
Hear her confessions:“I left my parents home in Lafenwa, Abeokuta , for Lagos in search of work. I was staying with brother Wasiu ( one of the suspects). Later, brother Sadiq (suspect) said he would introduce me to a job that would fetch me money. He said I needed to blend into the system by being a member of Eiye. I agreed and was initiated into Eiye confraternity. Thereafter, brother Sadiq taught me how to use a gun. By the time I went through training three times, I knew how to fire a shot. Then he told me that I would be going on killing mission for them. Anytime I was going to kill, brother Sadiq would give me the person’s picture and send the address to my phone. I usually wore white jalamia and white Hijab whenever I was going to kill and we went in a group of four; Wasiu , Segun, me and …., I can’t remember the forth person’s name now. I usually tucked the gun inside the white jalamia, so that nobody would notice I was armed. “On reaching the target’s house, usually at night, other members would jump the fence and open the gate for me. They would lead me right into the target’s room, from where I would fire the person in the chest and forehead before leaving the place. “At the end of each killing, Sadiq would pay me N10, 000 and give others N20,000. So far, I have killed four persons: two men and two women. I killed one at Fabiyi street, others at Hassan and Aje street, all in Ilasamaja. Before we leave for any killing, we usually visited the herbalist who would give us charms that would put residents to sleep until the operation was concluded. I never felt bad killing anybody.”
