Many Twitter users have shared horrid stories of how joining a cult negatively affected the lives of some people they know.

They shared this in reaction to a terrifying documentary on cultism in Nigeria published by BBC Africa Eye recently.

Taking to the micro-blogging platform, some opened up on their personal experiences with cultism while in the university, while others shared stories of their close relatives.

The conversation led to a conclusion that cultism is a menace in the society and destroys the lives of promising youths.

This is coming after Sylvester Oromoni, a 12-year-old student of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos, died after he was allegedly beaten and tortured by his seniors in the school over his refusal to join a cult.

However, there is still a lot of controversy surrounding his death as the case is still being investigated.

May his soul rest in peace!
