I personally do not see what is wrong with holding Ini in the jungle or ITs in secret locations in Nigeria. We in Austria hold our Jolly in the Jungle and ITs in Locals, and Austria is a Police country. They have not come to boost our IT ground for once even with all the latest technologies at their disposal.
What we should check is the manner in which ayes carry out their activities and this never ending fighting and killings. When there is fighting my brothers, the Police will do everything possible to make sure they wipe out such groups whether be it in Nigeria or diaspora.
Recently the police boosted the Neo-Nazi group in Germany because they are an anti-social group even when they are German citizens, but the same Police have visited the venue where we were having a European Regional IT in Germany, though they know we were axemen, but since there was no crime committed or against us they left the same way they came.
Lord Kaduna Ezeogwu once posted here that NBM items and logos are displayed in Police stations in Benin, Nigeria; there are warnings against members by authorities, my brothers do you think where such alerts exist the police will not arrest members of such groups? Surely they will, it has nothing to do with our traditions but everything to do with fighting and killings that has become the norm in NBM.
So if we want things to go accordingly without the police arresting members, then we have to change this our business as usual attitude. Na so I see am reach.
