NBM in Europe (Shocking Video)

It was only a week or two ago that I posted a video of cultists on a violent rampage in UAE.

It was shocking, scary and something we never want to see again.

They stacked up outside a room in an apartment complex corridor. A member identified the door they were looking for and after several kicks they made entry.

A CCTV camera captured an endless stream of cultists filtering from the corridor into the apartment.

Phone camera footage taken of the aftermath of what happened inside was gruesome to say the least.

Reports stated that 22 people had been murdered.

Bodies lined the floor. Blood was everywhere. Gallons of it.

Here is the original post

Of coure such events are common place in Nigeria and probably not even news worthy most of the time.

At the time I said it’s only a matter of time until it happens in Europe or elsewhere the NBM now have a presence.

Truth is… behind closed doors nobody knows what is happening or has happened.

The NBM (and other cult groups too) are without question responsible for all kinds of evil crimes that we’ll never get to hear about. The victims will never see justice.

I got information this morning about one such incident.

The following video I must stress is highly disturbing.

Very little information is available at this time regarding the clip.

I implore people with any information to contact me: intel@nbm147watch.com

Edit: Youtube removed the video… which is maybe just as well.

That’s how bad it was.

77 Metal Day Special – NBM Question and Answers AKA Black Axe Question and Answers

Happy Metal Day!! (It’s just into 7/7 where I am)

44 years to this day on the 7th July 1977 (7/7/77) the NBM were formed.

In order to mark the occasion may i present to you Questions & Answers formed from your own inquiries to the site.

77 of them!

Let gets thing started and if you have any complaints please write: complaints@nbm147watch.com

what is the black axe?

There is no organisation or group called ‘The Black Axe’.

The NBM (Neo Black Movement) are only popularly known as ‘The Black Axe’.

The NBM like to distance themselves from the name ‘Black Axe’ (due to the dreaded reputation associated with the name). Although privately they acknowledge the Black Axe and the NBM are one in the same.

In the very earliest days they briefly called themselves “The Black Axe Movement” although this changed to NBM.

A campus publication they produced was called “The Black Axe Magazine”. This later became “Black Uhuru Magazine” before becoming “Uhuru” as it is known today.

what is nbm africa?

The NBM are a criminal organization (a mafia) that parade themselves as a charity/movement/NGO. Although some charitable giving is evident it is dwarfed by colossal amounts of organized crime that members commit. Charitable actions are purely cosmetic for the purposes of “image laundry”.

The organization serves no real purpose aside from networking (for criminal exploits) and resolving issues between members (when their criminal exploits go wrong).


what are the nbm idiology?

Initially it’s ideology was described as: “The ideology of the movement was Neo-Blackism, which was a complex mix of Intellectual Radicalism, Pan Africanism, Negritude, African Traditional Religion (ATR) practice and research, Fraternal Relations, Secret Rites of Passage and Militant Action”

Today the Neo Black Movement of Africa claim to be “a socio-cultural organisation that seek to revive, retain and modify where necessary those aspects of African culture that would provide vehicles of progress for Africa and her peoples.”

However if you can find any evidence of any of the above occurring over the last 40+ years… please let me know.

Vast amounts of evidence exist though that shows the NBM to be a violent criminal organisation responsible for countless murders and vast amounts of organised crime.


what is the motto of nbm?

The motto of the NBM is “​equality and social justice for all”

However they are a racist, misogynistic and homophobic group who have no interest in either social justice or equality.


what is the constitution that guide nbm?

The constitution of the NBM can be found here:


what is nbm code of conduct?

The NBM’s “code of conduct” can be found here: https://nbm147watch.com/2017/07/28/nbm-disciplinary-standards/

However it’s purely a smokescreen and used pitifully by them as evidence that the organisation does not allow or promote criminality. It says members cannot commit crime and therefore they don’t…. Fooled?

The head of the Black Axe (assuming you really mean the ‘NBM’) is currently: Ese Kakor (Lord Dauda Kairaba Jawara).

John Okogie
Uche Almona
Marvel Apoyibo
Bernard Ojishua
Godwin Ehigiator
Ojo Olagunju

John Okogie
Uche Almona
Marvel Apoyibo
Bernard Ojishua
Godwin Ehigiator
Ojo Olagunju
Idemudia Nicholas
Gbolahan Dosumu
Tokunbor Brown

Spot the difference?

The following year (80/81) the position was occupied by Aye Fazi Wazi, ju name: Odigo.

He became the first CP to wear white regalia… a tradition that has continued to this day.

Ibn Godidi De Saddest is the codename for Idemudia Nicholas who is one of the Founding Fathers of the NBM.

He was the primary archtect for the creation of the NBM.

The story goes that Charles Robert Kokoma betrayed the movement by giving away the organisations secrets to a rival group. He is said to have beheaded on a basketball court on Ekenwan Campus. The legend is propagated in order to deter members from giving away any secrets.

nbm first temple in nigeria?

A temple is a university campus where the NBM operate. The NBM claim to have no presence in the university system but this is one of many many lies that the organisation propagate.

The first ever temple was FJ1 = Futa-Jallon.

Later modified to FJMT = Futa-Jallon Mother Temple.

This is Uniben (The University of Benin).

Axemen (because they have killing on the mind) wrongly refer to it as “Murder Temple”.

where did the black axe started?

Uniben. The group known as the “Black Axe” started at the same place and at the same date and time as the NBM (because they are the same group).


inikpi dragon high temple was been in existence since when,year,month and who is the first head?

Inikpi Dragon High Temple is the codename for The Federal Polytechnic Idah, formerly Idah College of Technology.

The creation dates of the temples are often confused and disputed by members.

We know Inikpi Dragon High Temple gave birth to KBHT (Kanem Borno High Temple – Auchi Polytechnic) in 1983.

Ernest Osa Amadasu was blended in Inikpi Dragon High Temple in 1982.

I heard the year of birth is 1980 but it’s not 100% confirmed (though the above shows it could be the case).


why inikpi dragon is called second murder high temple?

None of the Temples are called “Murder Temples” they are: Mother Temples.

The Mother Temples are the temples that have over time given birth to others.

what is the functions of scribes in nbm?

The ‘Scribe’ is simply an administrative role charged with the duty of taking down meeting notes.

The ‘7’ represents the AXE!


what is the meaning of 147 in black axe?

147 is the magic number

1 – represents a blade (knife)

4 – represents a firearm (gun)

7 – represents the AXE!

We often see it written also as: 0147

With the ‘0’ either representing the beret or bandana depending on who you speak to (some members claim that the ‘0’ was present before they started wearing the beret and represents a bandana or sash that the early members wore).


after joining the black axe before ur strong name what is the name of the oat that u are going to swor?

It’s simply called the “Oath of Members” (or “Kokoma Oath”… because that’s what is spat into your face when you say it).

what is the nbm oath of allegiance?

I ————- wishing to be an Axe man do hereby make oath and say as follows:

That I will live, speak and fight for the best interest of all within the Neo-Black Movement. That with the cooperation of my fellow Axemen shall fight and struggle for the unity of all oppressed people. A cry from anyone of us in the Neo-Black Movement shall echo in the body of our common goal and in self defense we shall protect our common interest. The day I become an agent of murder, oppression or discrimination against the black race, should this Kokoma squeeze life out of me. So help me God.


who introduce broken into nbm?

I think you mean “Breaking” as in “Breaking Metal”

‘Breaking’ someone’s metal means to de-axe them.

To be de-axed means you are removed as a member.

‘Breaking Metal’ goes back to the very earliest days of the organisation. In the early days every member would have their own personal axe. When a member was de-axed they would have that personal axe physically broken to symbolize their removal.


what is the meaning of region body in nbm?

I think you mean the ‘Regional Body’.

Section 15 of the NBM Constitution states:

“There shall be a Regional Structure in the Organization under the leadership of a regional head. The National Executive Council shall constitute or group zones within close geographical proximity into regions and this shall be ratified by the NCOE. The zones shall retain their independent structure within the region.”

The Regional Body is simply part of the organisational structure. At the top there is the National Body. Under that the Regional Body. Under that the Zonal Body. Under the Zones are any temples or forums that might be operating in that geographical area.

A list of Regions and their Zones can be found here.


what does egede mean?

There are three types of egede….

  1. Done by clashing forearms (always right arm) with another member.
  2. Mini egede – Done by crossing trigger finger (the index finger used to pull gun trigger) with another member.
  3. Referring to the traditional African drum.


what is the meaning of itj in nbm?

ITJ = Intending Ju

It means a non-member (Ju) who is going to become a member.

Not to be confused with “In-Ju” which refers to members of another cult.


what is the meaning of aye in nbm?

Although ‘Aye’ and ‘Aiye’ are said to have meanings in Yoruba the general consensus is that the original meaning within the NBM relates to the earliest days when they were called the “Black Barracards”. The Black Barracards been violent seafaring pirates. Hence the “Aye!”.

Members at University, prior to graduating and becoming a full Axe Lord, are also referred to us “Temple Ayes”.


how many body forms are there in nbm?

Today just the ‘Head’ and the ‘Eye’ are body forms that comprise offices within the organisation.

Historically though there was also the Right and Left Hand.

These two positions were later dissolved and became the office of Chief Priest (2nd in command… the Head’s right hand man).


what is the meaning of bam in nbm?

‘Bam’ has several different meanings.

One is simply as a positive affirmation and could be directly translated to mean good/great.

Also it’s used, mostly by Temple Ayes, instead of “Blending” (Been initiated into the organisation).

although this is commonly accepted to be incorrect usage.

Another is as a secret acronym:

B = Black

A = Axe

M = Man


who is korofo in nbm?

A common misconception within the NBM is that Korofo = God.

Founding Father Idemudia Nicholas explains that Korofo is “the cult of underground”

The NBM (although we’ll notice in the link above Pa Nick calls the NBM the Black Axe throughout) deny been a cult (due to that making them illegal) and yet it’s explained very well that’s exactly what they are.

Reason + Courage + Grace = NBM Trinity

Sadly there is no shortage of “super stars” that are NBM members.

One very obvious example is Davido.

Others include:

Jn Daddy Showkey, Lord Muta Muta Baruka (Blended at 2013 national convention, held in Ogun state),
Jn Burna Boy, Lord Malcolm X (Blended at Ewekoko HT),
Jn Yung6ix, Lord Kwame Nkrumah (former butcher, Kanta Ethiopia HT),
Jn Oritsefemi, Lord Emperor Haille Selassie (blended at 2015 national convention, held in Omoku, Rivers state)

davido nbm strong name?

Davido, the massive muppet, bares the Strong Name: Lord Kwame Nkrumah.

He was blended in Lekki Zone and it caused some wahala.

as a member of nbm if i been asked to identify myself what will i say?

A member is required to identity themselves stating their strong name, temple and year of blending.

For example: Lord Malcom-X, FJ1 98.

Of course further questions could be posed to ensure you haven’t just made that information up or copied it from someone else. The list of possible questions is almost endless. Some of the most common might be to give details of your LM (Link Man) so they can confirm who you are. Also you might be subject to trivia questions relating to the Temple you claim to have blended from. Such as who was the Axe Head at the time of your blending.

Such questions easily root out imposters.

The Strong Name ‘Jesse Makoko’ relates to Rev Gilbert Oluwatosin Jesse

Former NH Jasper Biekpe Onobo has become a strong name following his death. He is as much of an African hero as I am.

Fela Kuti is another Strong Name of Nigerian origin.

They are few and far between.

what are strong names of national black movement?

Strong Names are names given to members following their initiation. They tend to be named after African heroes, leaders and freedom fighters.

The Strong Name is then adopted as a codename in order to add a layer of secrecy to their dealings.

Of course if you was to read here that Nelson Mandela has shot and killed someone or Martin Luther King has chopped someone’s head off… then it’s fair to assume it’s an NBM member who has hijacked that person’s good name.


top ten black axe strong names?

The NBM’s most popular strong names was documented here


is santos payama a black axe member?

The name Santos Payama refers to ‘José Eduardo dos Santos‘ who was the president of Angola from 1979 – 2017. Making him the second longest serving president in African history.

The name is used as a ‘Strong Name’ by the NBM.

Any misbehavior associated with cultism in the orbit of that name will be thanks to NBM hijacking it as a codename for it’s criminal enterprises.

Axemen, miseducated morons, often dispute the above based on the misconception that the “temple expansion” began in Edo State. However this is based on one major history fail.

Edo State did not exist until 1991. The first three Temples above were created in Bendel State.

Benin City and Ekpoma becoming part of Edo State and Abraka becoming part of Delta State.

SM = Strong Man…. The term came about during Austin Edoror’s tenure as (the first) Natioan Head 1984-87.

ayes confraternity war clash victims?

Thousands of young men and often innocent bystanders have been murdered by NBM members.

Disturbingly the NBM keep track of their victims on secret forums in the form of what they call “war scores”.

War Scores read like football results. When the NBM are celebrating an 11-2 victory it means they have lost 2 members but killed 11 of their opponents.

Augustus Bemigho-Eyeoyibo (Lord Are Ona Kakanfo) is the former National Head of the NBM (Serving from 2012-2016) until he was replaced by Felix Kupa. He is the owner of Roseview Court Hotel in Lagos and has on two occasions attempted to run in Warri to be a member of the House of Representatives.

i want to join nbm movement?

No you don’t!

Although on paper it might seem like a good idea. A chance to meet Davido? A foot up on the criminal ladder? more chance of running for government?

Although the chances of the above might nominally increase… your chances of been murdered increase 1000 fold.

If a rival cult member doesn’t cut your head off then a fellow member will. Either that or the police will not think twice about shooting you.

Say no to cultism.

Get a real job.


77. were is nbm heading to?

Koforo is purported to have said “the death of the NBM will never be heard”

Of course in reality FF Pa Nick has already explained that this was never actually relayed from Koforo and was simply made up.

I’m therefore of the belief THE DEATH OF THE NBM WILL BE HEARD… and in the not too distant future.

Happy metal day again!

AYeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Mr Hakeem Odumosu, has vowed to get rid of robbers and cultists with the adoption of community policing strategies in the state.

Odumosu made this promise in a statement signed on Saturday by the Police Public Relations Officer OlumuyiwaAdejobi. The police boss said that police operative attached to Akodo Division arrested two suspected members of Aiye Confraternity at Eleko Beach in an attempt to attack their targets in the afternoon. “Items recovered from them include one locally-made pistol with some live cartridges and some charms. “The suspects will be transferred to State CID, Panti, Yaba, for proper investigation and prosecution,” he said.

Odumosu said that it was imperative to take the battle against robbery and cultism to their dens across the state and flush them out according to the provisions of the law. He reaffirmed his zero tolerance for crimes and social vices, especially cultism which were the root of all violent crimes. “Similarly, the Rapid Response Squad operatives on new year arrested two suspected robbers operating on motorcycle and eight suspected criminals in their various hideouts. “Preliminary investigation reveals that the trio connived, converged, and lodged on Obalende Area, Lagos, in preparation for their robbery operation,” Odumosu said. He said that items recovered from the robbery suspects include two knives and their operational motorcycle. “Meanwhile, eight suspected criminals including three suspected cultists, five drug dealers were picked up at different locations within the state on new year’s eve.

No fewer than three persons suspected to be cultists have been killed and many others injured in the Abesan area of Lagos State.

The clash between Eiye and Aye members reportedly started on the Boxing day when some members of one of the cult groups were attacked and a reprisal attack on Monday led to the death of three people.

This is just as the police in the state arrested about fifteen suspected cultists during raids on different black spots in Ikorodu and Ajah area of the state.

The Abesan killing was said to be a reprisal attack from suspected members of the Aye cult group whose members were attacked last weekend.

Newsmen gathered that trouble started around the Abesan Low Cost Housing Estate when suspected members of the Aye cult group attacked their rival group.

Two members of the Aye group were reportedly badly injured in the attack, resulting in the reprisal attack that led to the death of three persons on Monday.

Meanwhile, the police in the state swung to action and arrested fifteen members different cult groups in the state.

The image-maker in charge of the state police command, Muyiwa Adejobi in a statement on Tuesday confirmed the arrest of the suspected cult members.

Adejobi said “as part of its efforts to protect lives and property in Lagos State, the Lagos State Police Command has been on the trail of criminals who have been terrorising Lagosians at strategic locations, especially in Ikorodu and Lekki/Ajah areas of the state in order to decimate their plans.”

“On 28/12/2020 at about 4am, while responding to a distress call from Agunfoye area of Ikorodu, the Police Surveillance team attached to Ikorodu Division of the Command arrested one Taiye Lasisi ‘m’, 20, of Agunfoye, with a locally made Revolver pistol.”

He also continued that “after his arrest, a search was extended to other black spots in the area where 13 (thirteen) other suspected cultists belonging to Aiye Confrarternity were arrested.”

He listed the arrested cult members as Segun Ariyo aka Zangalo, who was once arrested and transferred to the disbanded SARS in Lagos, Kazeem Akinpelu, Ibrahim Oni, Tobi Awoyefa Yusuf Okunlowo, Oyesanya Damola ‘m’, Bola Hassan ‘m’, Toheeb Adesina ‘m’, Hassan Ashiru Onafowokan Michael, Folahan Adeola, Damilola Adeola and Julius Ihara.

According to Adejobi “exhibits recovered from the suspects are eight mobile phones, three bags, one black belt, one White handkerchief containing four lighters, one black nylon containing some charms, some expended and live ammunition and two black 25 litre kegs containing skuchies.

“Similarly, the police operatives in Akodo Division, on December 28, 2020, at about 4am, arrested one suspected cultist, Lekan Razak (20) while attempting to rob at No. 25, Ibomide Street, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos.

“The suspect, who has confessed to be a member of Eiye Confraternity, was arrested with a locally-made pistol with some live cartridges.”

No fewer than two persons have been killed on the eve of New year in a cult war believed to be retaliatory between members of rival cult groups in the Sapele local government area of Delta State, This is coming barely 48 hours after a popular hairstylist, Adams Ejuvwese, popularly called 10 over 10 was killed.

Vanguard learnt that trouble started on Tuesday after the popular hairstylist while sitting in front of his saloon along New road by Otite road junction in Sapele on Tuesday was gun down in broad daylight by suspected cultists. Sources said the killing which shook the community was greeted with reprisals, during which cult members at the scene were reportedly heard boasting that they would retaliate the murder of the young man. Barely 16 hours after the killing, a rival cult member said to have celebrated the death of the hairstylist was said to have been arrested by men of the vigilante.

According to sources, one of the men shot last night, whose name cannot be ascertained as at the time of going to press, was killed inside his car (a Venza) while heading to the Total end of New road by Adeola, close to a popular car stand, an action that sent members of churches around that vicinity scampering for safety.

Central African mafia in Palermo

(Google Translated)

On December 12, Matteo Salvini, leader of the League and senator of the republic, was in Sicily, in Catania, where the hearing of the trial took place which sees him accused of kidnapping for having delayed the disembarkation of the irregular emigrants of the Gregoretti ship in 2019. By coincidence, the next day the BBC dedicated a reportage to Sicily.

Accompanied by photographic documentation, the report explains how the island has become a happy, joyful multicultural center thanks to the fact that thousands of young Africans, mainly from West African countries such as Nigeria, Senegal and Gambia, they have chosen it as their new home.

It is often forgotten, says the BBC, that while tens of thousands of Africans have passed through the island, passing through on their journey to Northern Europe, as many have instead decided to stay. Palermo in particular, “always a melting pot of cultures”, is fortunate to have a mayor, Leoluca Orlando, “pro-migrants” and for this reason the city has long been known and appreciated for its hospitality. “Over the years,” observes the author of the report, migrant journalist Ismail Einashe, “I have seen how much African culture has reshaped the city, from musical tastes to the popularity of African dances to food and even the hairstyles of young people. Sicilians “. “In no district of Palermo”, he continues, “the African presence is more evident than in that of Ballarò,

Following is a description of the evenings in Palermo, animated by African songs, drums and dances while in the bars of Ballarò you can drink spritz, but also cocktails that taste of mango, hibiscus, pineapple and ginger, and in the restaurants Sicilian and African dishes are served . At the market, then, next to the Italian stalls, there are those full of once unknown products, such as okra and sweet potatoes, and African women grill corn cobs: “A corner of Africa sprouts everywhere, from Nigerian women who sell soda, sweets and beer to Senegalese tailors who make African-style clothing ».

In addition to his own direct experience, Ismail Einashe drew on Italian sources to document himself, but in a very selective way: for example, the Terrelibere.org website, where it is possible to read an article entitled «Palermo. I will dance safer thanks to Africans ”, in which it is argued that immigrants have“ contributed positively to returning the historic center to the city ”; or L’Espresso, which in 2019 published the article “Palermo, the capital of hospitality: the great lesson of Sicily to all of Italy”, according to which Ballarò “lives again” thanks to the immigrants who denounce the extortionists of the mafia: ” an alternative model “.

In the L’Espresso article, however, it is said that the journalist Gianmauro Costa, a fervent supporter of the providential good influence of immigrants on Palermo, nevertheless set his novel “Black Market” in Ballarò, whose protagonist “is struggling with Black Ax, the new Nigerian mafia ». Just scroll through the Palermitan news to understand why. Eiye, an offshoot of Black Ax, manages the racket of trafficking, prostitution and drug dealing in Ballarò. This is also why violence is frequent in the neighborhood. Among the recent ones, one of the most serious involved dozens of people at the end of May: a maxi brawl between Italians and Africans mostly from Gambia armed with knives, sticks and shards of bottles that required the intervention of dozens of police vehicles. and police.

But Ismail Einashe does not mention these problems, much less speaks of the way in which the immigrants arrived in the city “which they have chosen as their new home”. Irregular, illegal, clandestine. Not once are these terms used in the service.

Yet many, if not all the foreigners who, according to the journalist, revive and normalize Palermo and Sicily by fighting the mafia and animating the life of once infrequent neighborhoods, have presumably landed in Italy without documents and visas, transported by an organization of traffickers. , and, if they still live in Italy, it is because they took their time declaring themselves refugees and filing an asylum request.

This is certainly the case of the Nigerian singer Chris Obehi, who arrived from Nigeria at the age of 17 “after having faced the dangerous route that passes through Libya” and who in many of his songs evokes the difficulties encountered in reaching Palermo. In one of his greatest hits he sings the crossing of the Mediterranean: a few unrelated words, the text, and a single sentence repeated and shouted over and over again: “We are not fish, we are not fish in the sea, but we are human”.

Almost incidentally, the BBC article notes that “a growing anti-migrant sentiment pervades the island.” Why are they irregular? Why do they use the expedient of calling themselves refugees to be included in the expensive reception program set up for them?

Why, when they leave, they mostly find no work except in black, since in Sicily the inactivity rate exceeds 52 percent and they also do not speak Italian and lack training? Why do they join the Nigerian mafias or other sectors of organized crime?

No. For the BBC, anti-migrant sentiment arises from the difficulties caused by the pandemic.

Police Arrest 4 Suspected Cultists, Recover Arms

The Police in Anambra, Southeast Nigeria on Monday said they have arrested four suspected cult members and recovered incriminating items including a pump-action machine gun from them.

The command said one of the arrested suspects had been on their wanted list for cultism related offences.

Haruna Mohammed, a Superintendent of Police and Public Relations Officer of the Command said the suspects were harvested from different hideouts across the state by operatives of the Special Anti-Cult Squad (SPACS).

Mohammed said the suspects had confessed to being members of Black Axe and Vikings Confraternities.

“Command Anti-Cult Unit raided various hideouts and blackspots following intelligence reports and arrested three suspects as follows; Nwabuwanne Maduka 22, Anayo Ikechukwu 21, and Gozie Okoye, 37,” he said.

“Suspects were arrested at Amawa village Ogbunike in Oyi LGA of Anambra State and they voluntarily confessed to being members of cult groups, exhibits recovered in their possessions included one pump action gun.”

The fourth suspect, one Chukwuweike Ndupu, 26, a  native of Atani, Ogbauru Local Government Area who resides at Oye Olisa, Ogbunike in Oyi LGA has been on the Police wanted list in cult-related cases, the police spokesman said.

“He has voluntarily confessed to being a member of Vikings confraternity and exhibits recovered in his possession included one locally made single barrel pistol and one live cartridge.”

Mohammed said the cases were under investigation and those culpable would be charged to court while urging members of the public to provide timely information for prompt response in a time of emergency.

Cultism has been a source of major security concern in Anambra.

Professor Au Nnonyelu of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Business School Awka, at a recent Media Symposium in Awka noted that the prevalence of cultism in Anambra was a big question mark to the claim that the state was the safest in Nigeria.

Nnoyelu blamed the spate of cultism on poverty and unemployment which had resulted in a struggle for access to control resources that were non-existent.

He called on Anambra State Government to urgently address the issue of youth unemployment as a way of controlling cultism in the state.

“It is for contestation among the youth for resources that are inexplicable, the government has to address it because it is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode anytime soon,” he said.
