Those were the days when Frats consisted of reasonable people and intellectuals, Now, the whole thing has been hijacked by lowlifes and riff-raffs, murderous blowhards.

Frats were never a thing for intellectuals and reasonable people. Have you seen Woke Soyinka's pictures in his younger days? Does it strike you as someone who was living a good life at the time?

If he wasn't living a good life, how did he become a nobel laureate?
You think it happens over night?.
Simple, Then they had better objectives, unlike now that they go about maiming and killing people.
Even US ivy league universities have Confraternities. Legal and registered.

Stop trying to whitewash cultism. It was not a good idea in the past and would not be a good idea moving forward!!

Who's whitewashing it?
I said what i said. Doesn't mean I'm whitewashing anything. Besides, it was purely a confraternity then, not now.
You wouldn't hear of rival cult wars then, unlike now.
... And yes, Cultism is not a good idea.

They don't know na. Read, they won't. If they weren't purposeful people, you think Azikiwe would associate with them?. No way.

you can be a killer and still write a book and clinch the nobel laureate in literature

Pirate are non for violence on the sea and Soyinka modeled his cult group after the then pirate, holding night meetings, and claiming to right wrongs of the oppressed as if they where officers of the law, they even have their own gods and many other not so good life attribute

The only reason you did not hear of rival cult clashes is because there were not enough cults and cultists
