UK National Security Fail

May 2018 saw a huge upsurge in cult related violence. Many instances of senseless killings with the Neo Black Movement commonly cited as primary actors.

In Ogun State (“many lives” lost), Akwa Ibom (enough murders to motivate new legislation to be passed), Edo state (Black Axe beheading), Anambra State (Ten murders in 2 days), Jos North Local Government Area (14 murders over a single weekend), Imo State (one clash leaves two dead) are just the reported murders available to see after a quick internet news search.

In Nigeria State Police forces have been quick to respond and have publicly paraded scores of arrested cultists whilst wisely acknowledging there is still work to do. Several States have brought old anti-cultism powers into play and Akwa Ibom State has even created a special new law to try and combat the issue: The Cultism and other Violent Behaviour Prohibition Order 2018!

The killing has even spread into South Africa with at least two high profile murders (including the NBM Zonal Butcher). Police there are reported to be actively investigating the group there.

A recent Crowdstrike Intelligence Report acknowledged three other countries around the globe also taking action.

U.S. law enforcement arrested several Nigerian criminals on BEC fraud over the past few years, and Canadian and Italian law enforcement agencies have had limited success confronting and dealing with the Black Axe zones in their respective countries. Yet the magnitude of this criminal threat has only recently begun to be understood. As such, the threat posed by Black Axe and similar groups will remain
high for the foreseeable future

However it’s a very different story in Europe outside of Italy.

Austrian’s only a few miles away welcomed the Black Axe for a regional summit in Wein on the 25/26th of May.

But the most unwelcome and troubling news is the instalment of Jude Moedu  (jude.moedu@justice.gov.uk) into the UK Ministry of Justice.

 

Whilst working at the Home Office arguably abusing his position.

See: https://bemigho147watch.wordpress.com/2017/08/01/trying-to-get-travel-papers-from-the-uk-home-office/  

We can only guess what he’s up to there at the Ministry of Justice.

The Ministry of Justice is a major government department, at the heart of the justice system. We work to protect and advance the principles of justice. Our vision is to deliver a world-class justice system that works for everyone in society.

One step forward. Two hundreds steps back.

Justice in the UK is set to continue it’s mysterious ways for the foreseeable future.

The Ogun State Police Command on Friday confirmed the arrest of eight suspects believed to be members of Black Axe Confraternity and Supreme Eiye Confraternity in Ijebu Igbo as the law enforcement agency step up efforts to contain the cult-related killings, which has claimed many lives in the town.

“The suspects were picked up at their hideouts where they were holding meetings in preparation for another deadly clash. Immediately the report of the clash got to the notice of the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, he directed the Special Units of the Command such as FSARS and Anti Cultist/Kidnapping sections to move in and bring the hoodlums to Justice.
“In compliance with the CP’s directive, the Officer-in-charge of FSARS, Dsp Uba Adam, swung into action, and embarked on technical intelligence based investigation. Their efforts paid off when the hideout of the hoodlums was discovered. They stormed the place and got eight of them arrested with various types of dangerous arms and ammunition.
“The arrested cultists are: Muyiwa Talabi ‘m’, Tunde Adeyemi ‘m’, Korede Pariosho ‘m’, Dayo Johnson ‘m’, Segun Saka ‘m’, Niyi Adeshina ‘m’, Micheal Oluwaseun ‘m’, and Afolabi Ismail ‘m’.  It was discovered that the duo of Muyiwa Talabi and Niyi Adeshina  who are strong members of Aye group were the ones who hacked the victim of Wednesday clash to death.
“Their co-accomplice who also played prominent role was traced to his house by the rival group and hacked to death early this morning before Police got to his house for the purpose of arresting him. Recovered from them are two pump action guns, four locally made double barrel pistols, eleven live cartridges and assorted charms.”
Oyeyemi explained that Iliyasu has already directed all the special units of the state Police Command “to go all out after the perpetrators of the dastardly act with the view of bringing them all to justice as well as their sponsors no matter how highly placed they may be.”

Sadly only Akwa Ibom State in this case….

 

Governor Emmanuel outlaws 33 cult groups in Akwa Ibom

udom-emmanuel-696x464

Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State has signed the Cultism and other Violent Behaviour Prohibition Order 2018.
The law took effect from March 12, 2018.
Emmanuel said security issues reported recently in Etim Ekpo, Ukanfun and Ikot Ekpene local government areas necessitated the proactive measures.
Speaking on Monday during the signing ceremony at Government House in Uyo, he said the Order would re-energize the already existing criminal code law, Cap 38 Laws of Akwa Ibom State dated 2000.
He said: “Let me also implore other local government areas that have actually embraced peace to continue to show that in their conduct and everything that they do, because we want peace in every part of this state.”
The proscribed groups are Vikings, Black Axe, KKK, Buccaneers, Mafia, Luttox (Junior Black Axe), Debam, Dewell, Icelanders, Red Skins, Pirates, Amoc, Akwa Marines and Utoto Groups (419)
Others, which have more members in Secondary Schools are The Red Skins, St. Stephens, Dewell, Sept 11 Group, Secret Sons of Satan, King Cobra, J.V (Junior Vikings), Bats, Predators, Black Ladies, Black Cross, Scavengers, Skylolo , Sons of Nights, Blood Brotherhood, Junior Buccaneers, White Angels; and Musket.
Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barr Uwemedimo Nwoko, explained that the Secret Cult Prohibition Law provides a maximum penalty of 7 years imprisonment for culprits.
He said, “Just like any other law, it will serve no useful purpose if the members of the society do not rise up to support the law because even security agencies will need the cooperation and information from communities, schools and principals to identify the operations of these groups.
“Some of them are operating in secret manners and it is the responsibility of every Akwa Ibomite and every resident of Akwa Ibom who identifies or knows where they operate and the name under which they operate to bring to the knowledge of the security agencies and the government for effective action.”

Police parades cultists, armed robbers in Abia

 

nigeria-police-force-696x489

Abia State Police Command on Monday in Umuahia, Abia State capital paraded suspected cultists, armed robbers and others accused to be involved in snatching cars of their victims at gun points.

The State Police Commissioner, Anthony Ogbizi, told journalists that the suspects were arrested in different parts of the state through intelligence report, while others were arrested at the scene of the crime.

Leader (Capo) of the Black Axe confraternity, Princewill Okechukwu, a final year student of Political Science in ABSU was also among the people that were paraded by the Police Commissioner.

The Police Commissioner added that the suspects would be arraigned in court as soon as investigation was concluded.

A female cultist and final year student of Political Science at Abia State University, ABSU, Uturu, 22 year old Chika Ogwalachi reportedly confessed that she was arrested in the vicinity of an initiation exercise in one of the student lodges off the campus by a cult group.

Ogwalachi who was paraded with two other male members of the same fraternity said her boyfriend who also is a cult member had asked her to wait for him at the scene of the initiation before her arrest.

She further explained that while waiting for her boyfriend, one of the boys gave her a parcel which the boyfriend reportedly asked her to collect and keep for him.

According to her, she didn’t know that the parcel contained Indian hemp. This is even as she denied having knowledge that the boyfriend was a cult member.

“We just met recently and he promised that because of me he will leave the cult. It was while I was waiting that the police came out and asked what I was doing there.

“I told them that I was waiting for my boyfriend. They seized my bag, searched it and found the parcel. They unwrapped it and saw it was hemp. That was how they arrested me,” she said.

Also paraded was 23 year old final year student of History and International Relations, Salvation Chialu. He confessed that he was arrested during initiation. He said that while the other older cult members escaped he was caught by the police.

Chialu, a native of Awkuzu, Anambra State, said he was tricked into cult by people who came to him as friends. “I was buying something for them to keep them at bay but three days after my exam as I was packing my clothes, they came into my room and ordered me to follow them.

“When I saw the fierce look on the face of one of them I hesitated then he used a machete and cut my hand.” He however failed to connect the attack with the initiation angle.

Okechukwu told newsmen that he was arrested in the exam hall while writing his final examination.

He admitted that he was the leader for only two weeks but that those opposed to his emergence as the new leader planned his arrest.

He said he was aware that the items recovered from his room were dangerous weapons which they use for cult activities.

Okechukwu, from Isuikwuato council area of Abia state, admitted that seven live cartridges, a dagger, a machete and Black Axe black and red uniform were recovered from him.

Also paraded was Uchenna Okorocha. Okorocha who said that he was arrested when the police searched his house in Aba following the report of his master’s brother.

Okorocha said he spent his masters money on MMM and other gambling engagements but when he could not give proper account of pay back after stock taking his masters brother invited the police to arrest him with the aim of recovering the money.

Police arrests 25 suspected cultists during initiation

Operatives of the Enugu State Police Command have arrested 25 suspected cultists belonging to the Black Axe ‘Ayes’ secret society during an initiation ceremony in Enugu.

Daily Sun gathered that the suspects were arrested on 31st of April, 2018 when the operatives of the Anti-Cultism Unit of the Command raided Obeagu Amechi Awkunanaw bush where the suspects, said to have come from various institutions of high learning and secondary schools within the southeast, had gathered for initiation rites into the secret society.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed the arrest when contacted on telephone.

Amaraizu, a Superintendent of Police, said the arrests were part of a larger campaign and onslaught against cultism and other vices amongst youths in the state.

The suspects, he said, were arrested through a well-coordinated raid that took place at about 1:00 a.m. inside the bush behind Enugu State Centenary City, Awkunanaw on Monday night.

“The suspects includes students of some notable polytechnics, universities and secondary schools within the southeast as well as some artisans and workers from various companies in the state,” the police spokesman said.

“Items recovered from the suspects include a locally made single barrel pistol, a locally made cut to size single barrel gun, four live cartridges and six expended cartridges,” he said.

Amaraizu said the suspects are already helping the police in their investigations.

In a related development, the PPRO further disclosed that two suspected fraudsters that specialize in swindling their unsuspecting victims of money and valuables have been arrested by the operatives of the Anti-Cultism Unit.

He said the suspects, who gave their names as one Akin Ogunsemi and Shina Fatola from Ijebu Igbo Ogun State, were arrested on May 1st 2018 at Ukwuoji axis of Emene, Enugu, as a result of intelligence operations.

According to Amaraizu, the suspects modus operandi was to pose as herbalists in order to swindle victims of their possessions.

“Items recovered from them are include suspected fake currencies of some countries, some Juju boxes and other suspected shrine materials. They are helping the operatives in their investigations,” he said.

South_Africa_Imiigrant_Attacks_Cultism-696x464

A revenue collector working with the Oredo Local Government Council of Edo State, simply identified as Osazuwa, has been reportedly beheaded by suspected cultists.

The incident was said to have occurred on Monday night at 3rd East Circular Road junction, by Ekiosa market around 8.00pm.

The victim, a father of three, was said to be at his duty post when his assailants struck.

It was gathered that the killing might not be unconnected with a renewed cult activities over a recent disagreement between members of Black Axe and Eiye confraternity on one hand, and Maphite and Eiye confraternity group.

A witness, who craved for anonymity said: “The gunmen came in commando style and started shooting sporadically to scare away people and afterwards attacked the victim (Osazuwa).

“The man tried to run for his life but a member of the gang who had closed in on him hit the deceased with a rod and he fell down.

“Other members of the gang immediately descended on the victim and used cutlass to dismember his body.”

Effort to reach police authority for comment failed, as the State Commissioner of Police, Babatunde Kokumo, and the Command’s spokesman, Chidi Nwanbuzor, were said to be on marathon meeting at the Command headquarters.

IMSU: Two killed as rival cult groups clash

“These cult guys have started again; they are about to start another round of cult violence and killings in the area. These are supposed to be students but there is nothing academic about wielding guns and machetes,”

Source: https://newtelegraphonline.com/2018/05/imsu-two-killed-as-rival-cult-groups-clash/

At least two persons were said to have lost their lives yesterday during violent clashes between two rival cult groups in Owerri, Imo State. Key actors in the deadly clash were believed to be students of theImo State University (IMSU), Owerri, and members of rival cult gangs.

Witnesses said the clash was between members of the Black Axe confraternity and the Vikings at IMSU. A trader on the IMSU front gate road told our correspondent that the supremacyfight started at a students’ hostel known as ‘Delight Hostel’ in front of the university’s main gate.

The development caused pandemonium in the area, as students, including worshippers, scampered into safety. Sources from the university confirmed that it took a police detachment from the anti-cultism unit of the state police command and Orji Police Division to restore normalcy to the area.

The sound of gunshots was heard around IMSU junction and upper Bishop Courts areas, as the gun battle between the rival cultists lasted for nearly two hours. “These cult guys have started again; they are about to start another round of cult violence and killings in the area. These are supposed to be students but there is nothing academic about wielding guns and machetes,” a witness said.

The cause of the clash could not be immediately ascertained but the shooting, as confirmed by more than two sources, started at Delight Hostel in front of IMSU gate.

The only hint to the clash our correspondent gathered was that what started like a minor altercation degenerated into a shouting match and then a wholesale gun battle.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Andrew Enwerem, could not be reached for comments as at press time but a reliable police source confirmed the clash. The source said some arrests had been made while some other key actors in the cult clash were still at large
