New students of the Department of Theatre Arts, Rivers State University recently marked their induction in a style that generated ripples online.
While some cheered the students for the ingenuity and conceptualization of the idea, others expressed concerns over the ‘supposed spiritual implications of the display.
According to many, the induction procession bore close similarities with cultists confraternities activities, rather describing it as an initiation.
@Dedominicks on Twitter said; it is so sad that our tradition is considered evil, I believe if they wore suit and tie it wouldn’t make headlines
Another user @ Greenaetion said: This isn’t induction but pure initiation. Many won’t understand it until they start facing the realities tommorrow. Education gone in Nigeria
