The topic says Pyrate 'confraternity',I wonder why this people above me are shouting 'cultism',is it that some people cannot comprehend or is it ignorance of the highest order.
Merriam Webster dictionary defines confraternity as a society devoted to a religious or a charitable cause.
I certainly know from information available to all, that the pyrate confraternity is a charity organization,made up of like minds with the goal of creating an egalitarian society where the strong protects the weak and men are weighed by the strength of their character and not by the colour of their skins,religion or ethnicity. Little wonder why they are highly revered in and outside Nigeria for notable achievements in humanitarian activities and social reengineering.
I guess if this isn't a noble society of men,they likes of Prof Wole Soyinka and hundreds of notable men who associates with this group,could have dissociated for preservation of their reputation and image.

Stop arguing with yourself you are just embaracing yourself as well.What do you mean by pyrate you just define what it mean to us which the membershas their own objective and mission. How do you define BLM they said to defend black people but today they are killing the same black they are defending.

Confraternity ➜ Youth gang ➜Mafia.


1) Fraternities and Sororities: A confraternity, fraternity or sorority (and in, America, Greek letter organisation) are social clubs in universities in many parts of the world. These associations are very common in American universities and very many Americans, including prominent politicians, businessmen, and entertainment stars are members of the associations. The associations were generally formed to help their members academically and serve as a forum for people to network and connect. Fraternity = brotherhood, sorority = sisterhood. Former president George H. W. Bush was a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon at Yale, Bill Clinton is an honorary member of Phi Beta Sigma, and George W. Bush is a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon at Yale like his father. Basketball star, Michael Jordan, is a member of Omega Psi Phi, civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha and comedian and actor Cedric “The Entertainer” is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi.

What Wole Soyinka started was a fraternity that was meant to be like the fraternities in American universities.


2) Youth gangs: A gang is a group or society of associates, friends or members of a family with a defined leadership and internal organization that identifies with or claims control over territory in a community and engages, either individually or collectively, in illegal, and possibly violent, behaviour.

Many youth gangs sprang up in the United States in the period between the 1940s and the 1960s. The most well known are the Bloods and the Crips. These youth gangs control territory through acts of violence and intimidation. They usually have their unique colours and symbols like handshakes, walking styles and dances. They could violently attack and even kill someone for wearing their colour in their territory. They raise funds through illegal means like bullying and intimidation, drug sales, etc.

Many fraternities in Nigerian universities became youth gangs in the 1970s and most especially in the 1980s. They engaged in violent acts like murder and assault, gruesome initiation rituals, etc. In response to this, Professor Wole Soyinka pulled the Pyrates Fraternity, now known as the National Association of Seadogs, out of the universities.


3) Mafia: A mafia is a type of organized crime syndicate whose primary activities are protection racketeering, arbitrating disputes between criminals, and brokering and enforcing illegal agreements and transactions. Mafias often engage in secondary activities such as gambling, loan sharking, drug-trafficking, prostitution, and fraud. Examples of Mafia syndicates include the Cosa Nostra, the Yakuza, the Camorra and the Bratva.

The members of these 1980s and 1990s youth gangs have become older and some of them have moved out of Nigeria. They have established their organisations as criminals syndicates in places like Canada, Italy and the United States. They engage in drug trafficking, pimping prostitutes and other illegal activities and they have formed agreements with or fought wars against the Italian Mafia, the American Mafia and other such illegal organisations.

Some members of these organisations have become government officials and high ranking members of the society in Nigeria.


What Wole Soyinka founded in 1952 was a fraternity, not a youth gang or mafia syndicate.

will you keep quite, Webster dictionary kho, lobster encyclopedia ni

Confraternity is cult here in Nigeria, cult is confraternity, they are very interchangeable

Go thru the history of these pyrate confraternity and tell me their notable charity works

Soyinks might have had a wonderful idea,but that idea was defeated long ago, and that degenerated into all these cult nemesis we have in the society today.

All these young boys who are recruited into it don't even know why or when soyinka set up the pyrates, all they are told is to look out for opponents, identify with a particular color and slang,buy axe, and if small money dey make Dem buy locally made guns, just to kill and main opponents, ask them what's the fight against their opponents is, they don't know, until they are butchered miserably

Igbos have suffered in Nigeria. Someone will have personal problem at home, perhaps his preeq cannot raise again to service his wife or girlfriend and she has insulted him. Such a person will come and take it out on Igbos.

Fyi, an Igbo man was part of the founding founders of Pyrates confraternity (the original 7 abi 5). Igbos don't do cultism like that unlike Yoruba and Edo/Delta people wey carry am for head. No cult has originated in Igbo land. None. Igbos gentrify any cult they happen to join on an individual basis.

Please go and seek solution to your poverty or non performing manhood and leave Igbos out of your personal misery.

Thank you smiley

Something very funny happened many years ago. I was standing on the side of the road when a bus passed and written on its side were the words, "Confraternity of Christian Mothers".

One man on the roadside exclaimed. "Confraternity! These people no know the meaning of the word when dey dey use. Confra! How person go use that kind word"?
