Order of the Bees

A brief excerpt from Ludovica Iaccino's 6-27-14 International Business Times article entitled "Nigeria:  Boko Haram Members 'Being Killed by Mystical Bees and Mysterious Snakes Possessed by Ghosts'":
"Members of terror group Boko Haram have allegedly been arrested in Nigeria after fleeing a forest to escape deadly bites from 'mystical bees' and 'mysterious snakes.'
According to Nigerian newspaper Vanguard, the captured insurgents claimed the creatures -- possessed by ghosts -- had killed many Boko Haram members.
"'We were told that the aggrieved people who had suffered from our deadly mission -- including the ghosts of some of those we killed -- are the ones turning into the snake and bees,' one militant told Vanguard. 'Our leaders fled, too.'
"Boko Haram made headlines worldwide for the kidnappings of 220 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State, last April."
