Investigative correspondent Avery Haines reveals a global criminal organization behind romance scams. Watch the W5 documentary Saturday at 7 p.m. on CTV. Below is her account of the tragic consequence resulting from one of these scams.

TORONTO — It is an eerie feeling to go through the computer of a dead woman. Touching the keyboard, scrolling through the chat history, looking at the photos. It is a terrible invasion of privacy. Our computers are, after all, the holders of our secrets, storing everything we’ve ever searched up, the messages we’ve sent, the pictures we’ve taken.

The computer belongs to a woman named Colleen. It was given to me by her grieving sister, Karen Ringham, in the days leading up to the one-year anniversary of Colleen’s death by suicide in Delta, British Columbia. (W5 is only identifying Colleen by her first name at the request of her family for privacy.)

Karen gave me her sister’s computer in the hopes I could find some answers about how her gregarious and beautiful sister could have been so tragically duped. Colleen was the victim of an elaborate romance scam that left her destitute.

But her death was not over the lost money. Her three-page suicide note revealed that the scam had spiralled into a sophisticated con that had Colleen believing she was about to be arrested.

She wrote: “I was advised yesterday that the authorities in Toronto know my first name and it is only a matter of time before they come to arrest me. I am too old and too law abiding to end up in jail.”

On October 9, 2018, Colleen ended her life. The RCMP was called. They read the suicide note where Colleen documented how she had given over almost $1 million. But the RCMP did no investigation into the fraud. They didn’t even open her computer to look for clues.

So W5 did what police failed to do. We took Colleen’s computer to a forensic investigator in Toronto, who cracked her password in less than one second.

Copying the hard drive, we were able to see that Colleen had been doing Google searches for protection orders, women’s shelters and the RCMP. She clearly thought her life was in real danger. And then there were the thousands of chats, with someone who went by the name of Ryan Scott, an online man she had fallen in love with. Little did she know that Ryan was a fraud and his photos were stolen from someone else to carry out an elaborate scam.

If police had simply examined Colleen’s computer they would have found the dating site where ‘Ryan’ first lured in Colleen. A key piece of evidence that could have been helpful in tracking down the scammers, according to forensic analyst Matthew Musters from Computer Forensics Inc.

“There’s likely a good amount of information at [the dating website], that we don’t have here,” he said. All it would have taken, Musters says, is a simple production order from police.

In a statement to W5, the RCMP said there was no fraud investigation because “Nationally and internationally, the RCMP does not have a mandate to pursue individual cases. However, by working with municipal, provincial, national and international law enforcement, and government and private sector partners, the RCMP is working hard to prevent, detect and deter organized crime groups that target Canadians and impact the economic integrity of Canada.” (Read full statement here.)

The RCMP showed no interest in trying to track down the person whose images had been stolen to rip Colleen off. Our investigation led us to a completely innocent Canadian man, named Tommy Kean, who says his photos have been used again and again by scammers. He figures at least 70 women have reached out to him over the last 5 years.

“The people that find me…are telling me they fell in love with me or the pictures, and assuming it’s me. It’s horrible,” he said.

Tommy had no idea though about the tragedy of Colleen in British Columbia. It left him stunned: “I don’t know what to say. That’s shocking, that’s disgusting, I’m very sorry for the family. Where are the authorities on this? They didn’t even reach out to me to let me know.” (watch the full interview here)

Tommy says he repeatedly tries to flag the fake accounts that have been set up using his pictures on Facebook and Instagram, but more and more phoney profiles keep popping up.

Facebook tells W5 in a statement that the social media platform “is built on the principle that people who use our services are who they say they are.” The statement continues: “We have a dedicated team that works around the clock to detect and block fake accounts and we remove large numbers of impersonating accounts on a consistent basis.” (Read the full statement here.)

What we have discovered is that the way Colleen was conned has all the markings of a notorious crime syndicate called The Black Axe, which is operating in 26 countries, including Canada.

Beyond the invasiveness of reading Colleen’s private emails and texts, the most difficult part of going through her computer is looking at her pictures. The first photos are of Colleen and her sister Karen, hugging and laughing on vacation. The last photos are of every single thing Colleen owned…the art, furniture, even the Christmas ribbons, being put up for sale to try to satisfy the ruthless scammers who Karen says stole her sister’s money and her life.

“This invisible man – took everything that she had worked for, her family, her friends, her home. And he also took her life,” said Karen

German Zone Mafia Leadership

The Germany Zone are hard at work… as are their close brothers in the Austria Zone.

I’ve written to two charities in recent weeks in an attempt to disrupt further “image laundering” attempts by these Zones. Germany and Austria have ranked highly on the website’s visitor log since then.

The charities were receptive to the warnings and have taken steps to remedy their mistake (one of the charities demanding the NBM take down their images… which they have subsequently done)

“We already stopped any contact with this organisation in early summer because of their dubious history”

and

“Unfortunately none of our team knew who these men were or what they stand for. Our team however felt something was off with this group and one of our team members did a Google search of the group, but this was after they had already left. The information was vague and at that point we really did not quite understand what they do or what their role was. Following your first email, our team contacted the group leader and asked  them remove any pictures and videos they have of their visit from their website and asked that they would not use our name or pictures in any publications. The group took great offence at this querying whether we had ever asked any other group to do this, but our team stood their ground. We will follow up to ensure that this is done.”

And out of the blue also someone in Germany requesting information about any current investigations been conducted by LE in the German Zone.

In meeting with Bemigho147watch’s policy of open information regarding the NBM I’ve obliged the request and published the German Zone’s leadership structure below.

Furthermore I’ll be writing this evening to Julius Inegbedion’s (Head of Black Axe Germany) employers asking if they know who he is.

Members of NBM world wide

 

Aye Axemen,

 

Suspension Notice

 

I will like to officially notify all members of Neo-Black Movement world wide that Lord Thomas Sankara (JeuName Victor Osadiaye Ekhorutomwen)  has been suspended with immediate effect from the movement for 3 months. He is hereby bound from all NBM activities. This decision was taking during the last Inter-Talk of the zone in Ludwigshafen after he was found wanting for embezzlement of German Zonal and Austria Zonal monies during last regime when he was German zonal Head and European coordinator.

 

The reasons are as follows:

  • He took 370 Euros from the zonal purse for his own personal use and refused to pay back the full amount after repeated deadlines given to him by the present executive and COE. He paid back 250 Euros in bits and pieces and bluntly disobeyed the Zonal Exco/COE.
  • Austriazone sent him sometime last years during their Initiation 300 Euros for his transportation: He did not show up and did not refund their money. The NH asked German zonal head to recover the money for Austria zone.
  • The last straw that broke the camels back was when the zonal Head wrote him a mail and the NH was copied, requesting Lord Thomas Sankara to reply but again he saw himself even too big to reply and copy the NH. My NH was in the last European Regional Inter-Talk when the issue was discussed.
  • There is a resolution backed by the conference that gives him till 30thJune to balance 120 Euro back to the zone and 300 Euro to Austria zone or face DE-AXATION after the date. Enough is enough.

 

These were decision taken in good faith to re-establish trust and to build a leadership standard within the scope of NBM.

 

Dodorima,

 

Lord Patrice Lumumba

Florida Jury Finds Nigerian ‘Axemen’ Guilty of Scamming Elderly Women for Millions

Source: http://theohiostar.com/2018/11/16/florida-jury-finds-nigerian-axemen-guilty-of-scamming-elderly-women-for-millions/

While all eyes are on Florida for the recount of the Senate election, a federal jury in Tampa has found Okechuwku “Desmond” Amadi, a Canadian who had been living in Garland, Texas guilty of conspiracy and money laundering. He was caught operating a complex fraud scheme from Garland, via Florida, Canada and Nigeria, that preyed on elderly and divorced women.

The announcement from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Middle District of Florida came Thursday, stating that Amadi faces 60 years in federal prison.

The feds nabbed Amadi in Sept. 2017 as he returned on a flight to JFK International Airport from Nigeria.

In its press release, the DOJ noted that Amadi had taken advantage of vulnerable, elderly women, and in many cases forced them into poverty as a result of his fraudulent activity.

The government revealed in Amadi’s trial that the “New Black Movement of Africa,” sometimes referred to as the Black Axe Group, coordinated money laundering scams via cells in Nigeria, Canada, and the U.S.

“Black Axe fraud schemes took various forms. Many of the fraud victims were elderly, widowed or divorced women who had developed relationships with fake suitors on dating websites,” the DOJ revealed. “These victims were convinced to wire money, which often consisted of their retirement savings and cash taken out from their home equity, to bank accounts in the United States as part of a supposed investment opportunity.”

Vulnerable women

Many of the women involved were ashamed to discuss their experiences, but one victim of the sophisticated crime ring did allow her story to be told widely by Canada’s Globe and Mail.

Canadian criminal investigators, who spoke with the Globe and Mail, said of the Black Axe organization “that ‘Axemen,’ as they call themselves, are setting up chapters around the world, including in Canada.”

The Nigerian group often preys on other immigrants, and that is exactly what they did in the case of Soraya Emani, an Iranian immigrant living in Ontario, whose story was reported in detail in 2015 by the Globe and Mail.

Emani had fled to Canada in 1988 with her four sons, all of whom grew up to become educated Canadian professionals, but at 63, after saving to buy a nice home, she became “lonely.”

She saw a television commercial for a popular dating site, signed up, and within days heard from a man claiming to be a Canadian geologist who frequently traveled. He was, of course, a fraudster, and by the time he and his colleagues were finished with Emani, they had acquired hundreds of thousands of dollars from her. It got so bad that some of the money had been borrowed from friends and family, and she ended up losing her dream home.

Although Amadi, who was found guilty in Tampa last week, was not directly involved in Emani’s case, some of his fellow conspirators were. Other media reports give details about Amadi’s Canadian brother Derek, who is also deeply involved in crimes targeting women.

The Florida connection

Amadi, a Canadian citizen, had operated out of Garland while some of his co-conspirators were monitoring the cash-flow from Florida, one of whom was Mohammad Naji, according to the 2017 federal indictment against Amadi.

There is no mention of Naji’s immigration status or his nationality in documents reviewed by The Ohio Star, but in addition to facilitating banking, establishing shell corporations, and sending money out of the country, Naji had launched a scam of his own. Naji, unlike the so-called “Axemen,” had targeted lawyers and scammed them for million of dollars, which was detailed in a report from The Tampa Bay Times.

NBM Canada Zone “Press Release”

The NBM Canada Zone have issued a “press release” (that undoubtedly no respectable press agency will ever touch).

In this press release the NBM attack the work of the very capable, distinguished Canadian Police Detective: DC Trotter. A detective engaged in combating organised crime in Canada. It is no wonder then that the first group to ever speak out against his work are a group of organised criminals in Canada.

Furthermore a group of organised criminals who have suffered dearly at the hands of Canadian Law Enforcement in recent months.

TORONTO POLICE PRESS CONFERENCE ON NBM OF AFRICA: ANOTHER POLICE FALLACY AND FABRICATION

The attention of the leadership of the NBM of AFRICA Worldwide (a/k/a NEO-BLACK MOVEMENT OF AFRICA) has been drawn to Toronto Police Press Conference of October 22, 2015, where the Police characterized the NBM as a “criminal organization”.

We wish to categorically state that the entire press conference with particular emphasis on Detective Trotters comments relating to NBM of AFRICA are nothing but baseless, without any proof or merit and we reject them outright. At best, the comments are clearly the result of ignorance or very poor and shoddy police investigation.

In the above-referenced Press Conference, the Toronto Police had wrongfully or erroneously characterized NBM of AFRICA as a “criminal organization”. It is obvious, from the Press Conference that Toronto Police relied so heavily on clearly inaccurate and misconceived information about NBM of AFRICA and its activities with the result that it has falsely accused and/or labelled NBM of AFRICA as engaging in nefarious and illegal activities.

Quite incredulously, throughout the Press Conference, the Police could not cite or reference a single criminal activity that the organization has been involved other than the fact that an individual who is a member of the organization acting in his personal capacity without the knowledge, collusion, direction, complicity or connivance of the organization was arrested and charged for fraud and money laundering.

For clarity and avoidance of doubt, the NEO-BLACK Movement is an international Non-governmental, not-for profit, non-partisan, non-religious and non-tribal Pan African socio-cultural organization whose objectives and mode of operation are based on the principles of democracy, equality and social justice. The principal objectives of the organization in Canada are to advance the interests, welfare and general well-being of the people of African background and heritage. The organization works in partnership or in conjunction with other corporate and non-corporate organizations that share its vision of helping to reduce poverty, illiteracy and disease around the world and most particularly among people of African background or descent.

The organization has been carrying out these objectives through various charitable means such as providing counseling, providing job-searching assistance to job seekers (including resume writing) and seeking out available job opportunities for new immigrants from Africa particularly those from Nigeria. The organization has provided scholarships and funding from Secondary school to the University level to the children of some of its deceased members and/or indigent members. As well, NBM has, in collaboration with other well-meaning organizations, sponsored and still sponsor less privileged children from Asia and other countries and has made various donations to the Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto amongst others.

Regrettably, in the Press Conference referenced above, the two officers conflated NBM and the Black Axe Confraternity.  For the avoidance of doubt and for the record, the Neo Black Movement of Africa IS NOT the BLACK AXE CONFRATERNITY. Similarly, unlike the BLACK AXE CONFRATERNITY, the NBM is not a secret cult.

NBM has been in existence in Ontario since 2003 and was registered as a Not-for Profit Charitable Organization on August 20, 2012. Its members come from diverse professional and educational backgrounds. All of the organizations activities take place in the open either in a hotel or other public rented places. The organization is non-violent, non-criminal and non-clandestine in its activities. It is therefore unfortunate and highly regrettable that the organization has been portrayed as a criminal organization by no other than the Police Force- the Toronto Police without verifying the accuracy of its information and clarification from the leadership of the organization or other appropriate authorities particularly situated to better inform the Police.

The Toronto Police’s arrest of an individual, who coincidentally is a member of NBM, for allegedly committing a crime, does not make the NBM a criminal organization. Clearly, there is no question that some criminals who have been arrested, charged and convicted of one crime or the other by the Toronto Police may very well belong to one organization or another and the mere fact that a criminal belongs to one organization or the other does not in itself make their various organizations responsible for such individual’s criminal actions. It is therefore unfair and discriminatory to apply a different standard to NBM by labelling it a criminal organization because of the alleged criminal involvement of one of its member.  NBM is not a criminal organization and does not condone, encourage or engage in criminal activities.  As a matter of fact, any member of the organization who engages in any criminal activities is sanctioned with expulsion. While the organization does not have the necessary information to confirm or deny that the member arrested by the Toronto Police for allegedly committing fraud and money laundering was definitely engaged in the alleged activities (albeit criminal), the organization is emphatic that to the extent that the arrested member may have committed the alleged offences, he acted in his personal capacity and not under the mandate, approval or aegis of NBM of AFRICA and accordingly, he must, like every other suspected criminal, be held personally accountable for his actions and if found culpable, made to face the full wrath of the law on his own.

To further buttress and underscore the fallacy underlying the Toronto Police Press Release, The Police even stated that in Nigeria where the organization began, the NBM is an unlawful organization. It is perhaps very instructive and interesting to know as recently as November 16, 2015, a court of competent jurisdiction in Nigeria – the Federal High Court of Nigeria, sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos State, Nigeria issued a judgment declaring that the NBM is in fact a lawful human rights and charitable organization whose members are free to go about their lawful activities. For the avoidance of any doubt, certified copy of the said judgment is attached to this press release. Based on the recent decision by the Federal High Court of Nigeria, it is obvious to anyone who has made even a cursory investigation into the activities of the NBM that contrary to Detective’s Trotters claims, even in Nigeria, NBM is a very lawful and law abiding group.

NBM of AFRICA is mindful of its responsibility as a responsible Corporate Charitable organization as well as the reasonable expectations of its members and public alike. NBM of AFRICA has nothing but the utmost admiration and respect for the laws of this land and any other land for that matter. NBM of AFRICA does not encourage any of its members to break the laws of this land or the laws of any other land. To be very clear, if any of our members is found to have committed any crime or crimes against the laws of any land, it is in fact to the organization’s best interests that such member or members be made to face the full wrath of the law. Simply put, NBM of AFRICA would prefer that such member or members be made to face the consequences of their individual actions without any need to attribute the criminal activity of such member or members to the entire group especially considering that most of the organization’s members are law abiding citizens/residents with lawful and gainful employments.

In essence therefore, NBM of AFRICA only demand is that it be allowed, like other legally incorporated not-for profit organizations to work or operate in an environment devoid of wrongful or erroneous characterization, false accusations, innuendos and intimidation.

Finally, NBM of AFRICA finds it extremely outrageous and offensive that it has been defamed by the Toronto Police Department in this reckless and disrespectful manner and we have advised the Police Department accordingly. However, while we sympathize with the Toronto Police for its ignorance, we consider it necessary to also make this public statement to set the records straight and publicly put the Toronto Police Department on notice that unless they immediately cease and desist from making further defamatory and offensive statements about NBM of AFRICA, the Organization will be left with no option but to pursue all relief, in law and equity, to which the organization is justly entitled. Hopefully all of this will not become necessary.

Thank you for you for your time and attention.

Financial Crimes
416-808-7300

The Mass Marketing Section of the Toronto Police Service Financial Crimes Unit is a member of the Toronto Strategic Partnership against Cross-Border Fraud. This partnership represents a combined enforcement strategy, specializing in the investigation of mass marketing fraud in, or originating from within, the province of Ontario with cross-border implications.

During August 2014, members of the Mass Marketing Section started a fraud-related investigation, which revealed a “romance scam” involving a 63-year-old widow from Toronto. The romance scam occurred during the first half of 2014. The victim was allegedly defrauded of approximately $609,000.

Investigators worked with members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and United States Postal Inspection Service. This joint investigation uncovered the identities of individuals allegedly responsible for the cross-border laundering of proceeds of crime with a criminal organization.

It is alleged that:

– proceeds were obtained via a variety of fraudulent schemes directed against the public

– victims were encouraged to wire funds to a various bank accounts

– the funds were laundered and disseminated back to those directing the fraudulent schemes

On October 7, 2015, members of the Financial Crimes Unit, assisted by Peel Regional Police, executed a search warrant. Ikechukwu Amadi, 34, of Mississagua, and Lineo Molefe, 31, of Toronto were arrested. They have been charged in relation to the “romance scam” with:

1. Laundering the Proceeds of Crime
2. Fraud Over $5000

It is further alleged that:

– Akohomen Ighedoise, 41, of Toronto, is a member of an organization known as The Black Axe or Neo-Black Movement of Africa. The Neo-Black Movement of Africa is a transnational organization with affiliates in major cities around the globe, known as “zones.”

– Akohomen Ighedoise was actively laundering the proceeds of crime with/for other Black Axe members for monetary benefit

He has been charged with:

1. Laundering the Proceeds of Crime
2. Fraud Over $5000
3. Participating in a Criminal Organization

It is alleged that:

– the Black Axe/Neo-Black Movement are attempting to intimidate and exert influence upon Nigerian diaspora within the Greater Toronto Area

Toronto Police is encouraging anyone with information to please contact police or Crime Stoppers.

Based upon their own investigation, with assistance from the Toronto Police Service, the FBI recently indicted six individuals in an alleged vast wire fraud and money laundering conspiracy, where conspirators attempted to defraud victims of more than $5 billion.

Akohomen Ighedoise and Ikechukwu Amadi are among those indicted. The United States intends to seek extradition of Akohomen Ighedoise and Ikechukwu Amadi upon the conclusion of their respective Canadian cases. Additional U.S. indictments are expected in the immediate future.

It is alleged that:

– Akohomen Ighedoise utilized the alias Martin Acker or Martins Acker Jr

– he claimed to be a representative of the United Nations

– this ruse was supported by the use of forged UN identification dating as far back as 2011.

Police believe there may be other victims.

The Toronto Police Service is appealing to anyone who may have had dealings with the man pictured or had dealings with a person using the name of Martin Acker.

Canada Zone Crisis

Handbags at dawn in the Canada Zone….

Much internal fighting leading to the creation of a “two man committee” to investigate the crisis who actually managed to nearly start fighting too.

The crisis summarized:

The Zonal Chairman organised and “led a hit squad” to attack a fellow NBM member in car wash for “not greeting him correctly” in the ‘club house’.

A suspended NBM member was due to be married (but under the terms of any suspension a Lord cannot in anyway associate themselves with that member and therefore in this case could not attend the wedding). The suspended Lord pleaded with both the Zonal Head and Chairman and took them gifts of alcohol. They accepted the gifts of alcohol got together at at a Council of Elders meeting consumed the alcoholic gifts and had their own little jolly….. then sent SMS messages to all the members they should NOT attend the wedding. Some members disobeyed this command which led to 20 members been de-axed. Then the suspended member was un-suspended 24 hours after his wedding (i guess as some kind of joke?!)

Other members were been subjected to harsh beatings by the Butcher and his henchmen,

Many members were been punished, suspended and de-axed for nominal, unfair or inaccurate reasons.

The committee came to some conclusions to resolve the matters. Some are very interesting.

“Neo Black Movement should go with the flow of today’s world, we are in the 21st century, and it should shift from militancy to a more civil organization that will accommodate its now aging members.” (They are getting too old to beat people up and fight)

“The use of force to resolve its problem is unacceptable” (it takes a committee to work this out finally?)

“No Lord should be subjected physical pain either in a private or public place” (This you can read below is in reference to the punishment of Lords…. like what they call “match” or “5 minutes” where the Zonal Butcher drags a Lord outside to be dealt with.

Also the usual bickering about money

RECONCILIATION COMMITTEE REPORT ON CANADA ZONE CRISIS

a two-man committee made up of Lord Oba ON2 and Lord Jambarama 1 met in Toronto to reconcile factions involved in the Canada zone crisis. A faction led by the Head of the zone and another led by a former Head in Canada zone Monyor. During the session, members of both factions were allowed to speak freely. Voices were raised, at a time we felt the roof was going to collapse, members almost were physical. At stage members of the committee stormed out of the room in anger. Thank God tempers came down and in the phase 2 of the meeting we were able to resolve the crisis.

After review of petitions, numerous phone calls and 9 hour truth and reconciliation meeting in Canada with lords, the 2-man committee arrived at the following findings and recommendations: FINDINGS The Canada zone crisis was a revolt by some lords against a high-handed leadership that forgot that membership of NBM is by choice and has no right to control private lives of members. Some scenario that will help to understand what caused the crisis

Scenario 1 A lord on suspension went to inform and invite the Zonal Head and the zone for his marriage. He did it the African way, he went with hot drink and pleaded with the head to lift his suspension and allow the zones to attend his wedding because all his friends in Canada are Ayes and his best man is also a lord. He also met the chairman, gave him the marriage dress and begged him to attend his wedding. The head took the hot drink to the COE meeting, they accepted the drink. Both dress and drink were accepted by the Canada zone leadership. Here is what they did: A day before the wedding the head sent text messages to Lords not to attend the wedding and a day after the wedding the leadership lifted his suspension. What happened within 24 hours that made the leadership to lift the suspension of a lord who chose to marry in a foreign land where his only family is his confraternity friends, members of Neo-Black Movement. Many lords begged the Head to allow them attend the wedding in their private capacity, not as members of Neo Black Movement, he refused. He insisted they must not go. Then, the rebellion some lords decided to go and were prepared to face the hammer of a sadistic leadership. The hammer came from the zonal head: Six among those who attended the wedding were deaxed for attending the wedding, for “disrespect for constituted authority”, 14 others were suspended for same offense. The leadership has just created a formidable rebellion that will drag on for the next one year.

Scenario 2 A lord was accused of not greeting the chairman in a club house, the chairman himself led a hit squad to attack the lord, he was “played” in a car wash, and the chairman slapped him. The leadership later deaxed him. This created bad blood with other lords who felt the deaxed lord would have been given opportunity to defend himself. THE CANADA ZONE COE The leadership of the COE was very frail, it did not provide the necessary check and balance that would have helped to prevent the crisis, and rather it was part of the problem, it operated as part of the executive. The chairman was very weak, he created leadership vacuum filled naturally by Lord Bonafinger, Aka (PM) a permanent member of the COE. The Chief Priest (CP) did the unthinkable he “voluntarily” ceded his power to Lord Bona Finger in an IT and the COE did not find anything wrong with the mistake. “Code blue” Code blue was created by the leadership of the COE to undermine the constitution of NBM and the principles behind the creation of the Council of Elders as a democratic unit of the movement. When the word “code blue” is mentioned during COE deliberations it reminds the elders that they should not disagree with the leadership. One member of the COE was deaxed and another resigned in protest, the positions are yet to be filled as at when we met. However, the committee discovered that other factors helped to sustain the crisis, most important of them was the bitter feud between Lord Abebe Bikila former head of Canada Zone and Lord Bona Finger (PM), the committee was able to reconcile both of them and reminded them that as elders in the zone they should be “uniters not dividers”. Others are unaxemanly behavior by many lords such as gossips, lies, cowardice, ego, unforgiving spirit, sycophancy and the use of force to settle issues. We also condemn in all ramifications, the rebellion spearheaded by Monyor and Eghosa, they should always use the proper avenue to pursue their cause. The forming of unparallel government is unacceptable and against the constitution of NBM.

Recommendations

1. Neo Black Movement should go with the flow of today’s world, we are in the 21st century, and it should shift from militancy to a more civil organization that will accommodate its now aging members. The use of force to resolve its problem is unacceptable. No Lord should be subjected physical pain either in a private or public place. To be specific “match” should be banned, and replaced with other innovative civil punishment like paying fine and suspension.

2. Zonal bye-laws should be sent to the national body for ratification.

3. The present leadership should be allowed to complete their tenure which will end in less than a year from now; we don’t want to send a wrong signal that the leadership of the movement can be sacked diabolically. We condemn rebellion; we need a one united NBM in all tiers.

4. The movement should create structures for members with genuine grievances to seek justice. We are suggesting the national body create regional judicial council to resolve issues like this one; it is in our opinion that the national body was slow in applying the right solution to the problem after receiving the first petition from the aggrieved Ayes.

5. The use of deaxeation as an option should be minimized, deaxeable offences should be well spelled by the national.

6. In resolving the crisis the leadership and the Monyor/Eghosa led faction agreed on the following: (a). To strengthen the COE to enable it perform its constitutional function of checks, 3 lords from the Monyor/Eghosa led faction should be appointed to the present COE and other 2 lords to the present Exco. (b).The leadership agreed to lift the suspension of Monyor and Eghosa immediately. (c).The deaxed Ayes should be pardoned if they show remorse and pologize to the victims (The head and Bona Finger). (d)The committee discovered of the 6 deaxed lords by the national body, 2 lords did note part in the attack against the hhead and lord Bona finger. We recommend that the 2 lords (Paul-large and Osawaru) should be recalled by the national body immediately 7. The former Ihaza(Eghosa) a co-signatory to NBM account should release NBM money in the bank to the present Ihaza immediately. List of lords in the reconciliation meeting

International Index of NBM Wahala – Part 1

Here is an index of recent Neo Black Movement bad behavior (like stabbing a fellow NBM member), misconduct (been insubordinate to a higher ranking elder) and gross-misconduct (embezzling Zonal funds).

Also it documents any resulting suspensions and de-axeations that occurred should this bad behavior, misconduct or gross-misconduct attract any police attention or arrest (the worst cardinal sin a member can commit).

International Index of NBM Wahala – Part 1

(Clicking the underlined title will take you to the full story)

Apapa Zone Wahala – Complaints about “anarchy” and “hijacking” of the leadership in the Apapa Zone. Including an “unlawful violent event” (Which of course is different to the ‘lawful violent events’ like when the NBM are sponsored as thugs or killers by politicians). Also allegations that elders within the zone forged educational documents contrary to the NBM constitution in order to gain Lord status.

Belgium Zone Wahala – Complaint and recommendation for the de-axeation of ‘David Aghahowa Omorodion’ after a “little misunderstanding” led the aforementioned Lord to stab another member in the neck leaving him in hospital in a coma. Stabbing a fellow member in the neck been purely ‘bad behavior’ additional reasons for his removal from the NBM are included: Stealing the Canada Zone’s Chief Priest’s hand chain and passing on NBM information to a jew (non-member)

Benin Zone Wahala – Complaints regarding the “misappropriation of funds” and embezzlement of money given to the Benin Zone leadership in order to secure government positions for various politicians. Complaints also on how the promised “job slots” within Edo State Government were not fairly distributed. This money and these jobs awarded for the NBM Benin Zone’s help perpetrating political violence, political killings and generally helping to rig the elections. This is not the issue of the complaints of course…. it’s the embezzlement of the corrupt payments and hijacking of the government jobs that is the real issue to the NBM.

Canada Zone Wahala – Details of an NBM pedophile ‘Nestor Omoruyi Amayo’ in the Canada Zone raping a 13 year old girl (over the period of a year… therefore since she was 12 years old). The NBM conducted their own investigation which included “Lord Kwesi Wiredo interviewing the little girl”. Also the NBM conducted an image laundering exercise to “protect Nestor’s name, by so doing, our (Neo Black Movement) name too”. Mr Nestor fled to Nigeria and is currently wanted by Canadian Police on rape charges.

France Zone Wahala – Lord Yakata Samora pleading to be found innocent on the charge of embezzling Zonal funds… and blaming others.

Greece Zone Wahala – Details of Greece Zone embezzlement, insubordination, disobedient acts, chaos and panic that has led to the Greece Zone becoming “dis-functional”

Germany Zone Wahala – Accusations and complaints that the Germany Zonal Head is using “Zonal money” for his own personal use (naughty), spending otherwise too without any approval from the Council of Elders. Also accusations and complaints that the Germany Zone Chief Priest is doing exactly the same. Also accusations and complaints that the member holding the role of ‘Ihaza’ could be doing the same… but nobody in the Zone knows who holds that position.

Further accusations that the Germany Zone Chairman is “incompetent” and furthermore that him and Zonal Head conducted an illegal blending of a ju from Luxembourg without complying to the correct procedure (informing the NCEO for ‘authorisation’ and then passed to the National Head for ‘execution’)

Complaints too about 450 Euros lost when the Berlin Carnival of Culture kicked them out for been a “criminal group”. I wonder you wrote to them and told them that…..?!?!? 😀 😀 😀 😀

Accusations too that the Chief Priest, aside from stealing Zonal money, is not actually an axe-man.

Many other accusations and complaints too. Huge wahala in the Germany Zone.

Ike Bobby Onwubuya Wahala – Ike Bobby Onwubuya complaining about how it “looks” that Spain Zone NBM property was raieded by police and quite a huge and sizable haul of stolen goods and drugs discovered. Ike Bobby Onwubuya I would imagine worried how this might look to see his employers who at the time was a big high street UK bank. Also Ike Bobby Onwubuya voices his displeasure over a failed terror bombing and how the NBM will come under greater scrutiny as a result.

Ireland Zone Wahala – Accusations that Lord Laurent Cabilla ( Ju name Suba Emmanuel) took it upon himself to, against the constitution install himself as ‘acting head of the Zone’ following huge disorder and fighting in the Zone. Upon the troubles been rectified the Zone held their first IT (Itohan) which was then followed by a party to celebrate Lord Katanga newborn baby girl. This culminating in some “some public order offenses ( i.e shouting, screaming, fighting disturbing the entire neighborhood)”. NBM member Abella verbally insulted the chairman resulting in a charge of ‘Gross Misconduct’. Other trouble, tension and chaos also documented including an attempted ‘mutiny’ to oust the Zonal Head.

Italy Zone Wahala – Part 1 – Complaints by the Italy Zone of the Head embezzling Zonal funds, been monitored by the Italian Security Services, his phone been tapped by the security services, attacking someone with an axe, beating up a lady too…. but most worrying to them his house raided by the police (this causing huge concern due to two computers been seized which held “NBM datas”)

Italy Zone Wahala – Part 2 – Details of a robbery within the zone. Also details of a party including children and women (some of whom were pregnant) in which 200 NBM members were in attendance. In addition to slapping the attendees the voilence was escalated to the use of bottles and tear gas. Details of the de-axeation of a Lord for “attracting the attention of the Police”

Italy Zone Wahala – Part 3 – Details of the murder of an NBM member in Italy following a gambling argument over money. Members of the Zone instructed: “resist any form of violence that will escalate the already existing problem”

But it’d be ok to use violence to end the problem? or use violence is situations where the violence would not lead to an escalation?

Japan Zone Wahala – Part 1 – Details of an NBM member (Lord Dan Walter) who paid money to an “agent” to be smuggled into Japan. Things didn’t go as planned and the member ended up in South Korea. He was then helped financially by another Japan Zone member to get back from South Korea to Nigeria and then into Japan as originally planned. An agreement to pay back the money was made but Lord Dan Walter stopped making payments causing unrest in the Zone. Arguments and fights ensued. Disrespectful comments to NBM Elders been the final straw and a committee was formed to investigate the matters.

Japan Zone Wahala – Part 2 – Details of a Japan Zone member Lucky Aghaku (Lord Patrick Chukwuma Kaduna Nzeogwu) suspended for dancing inappropriately with the Zonal Head’s wife. Also whilst an attempted punishment was been carried out by the Zonal Butcher “he gave the butcher (lord kinta kunte) a head butt in the eye that caused him severe injury in the eye”

On another occasion at a Japan Zone ‘jolly’ Lucky Aghaku also began dancing “inappropriately” and took control of the Zonal microphone much to the disgust of the Japan Zone Chairman. After repeated warning and his bad behavior not stopping the Japan Zonal Head ordered the Butchers to take him outside for his 5 minute punishment. Lucky Aghaku was unwilling to take his punishment and for a second time headbutted the butcher (lord kinta kunte), elbowed Lord Barack Obama and started destroying the venue. Additionally injuring Thomas Sankara, the Zonal Head and spitting in the face of the Zonal Eye. Insults made about the Zonal Head and his family resulted in an “emergency coe meeting” to be called and a proposal made to de-axe Lucky Aghaku.

Netherlands Zone Wahala – Details of a Police raid in Holland on the NBM hang-out ‘Grand Café’ where 111 Nigerians were arrested. The document details concerns over the security of NBM members acknowledging the “obvious fact in the whole situation is that most members of the Nigerian community as well as Axe Men are not systemized as per Residence Permit, Visa or otherwise. Further arrests of an unknown number at “an Afro Shop in The Hague where mostly Nigerians hangout”. This led to all NBM meetings been suspended in the Netherland Zone for security reasons.

Rose View Court Hotel Wahala – Evidence of the NBM holding meetings at Oritsebemigho Eyeoyibo’s hotel (Rose View Court Hotel) and how this contravene’s the law and makes the hotel subject to seizure and Oritsebemigho Eyeoyibo himself liable for arrest.

Spain Zone Wahala – Part 1 – Spanish Zonal investigations uncovering embezzlement of Zonal funds by NBM member Leo Giebaen (Lord santos kabaka) and a plot to kill the Spain Zone’s Council of Elders.

Spain Zone Wahala – Part 2 – Accusations about Spain Zone NBM member Uwaifo Okonobo (Lord Aye Bulala) for stealing money from a fellow NBM member and insulting the Zonal Head which resulted in his de-axeation. He was traced to a house but fired shots at the people trying to regain the stolen money. He then fled to Sevilla.

Another dispute is described where a Spain Zone member (“Odion”) living and working in Spain illegally had been using the ID papers and bank account of another NBM member (“Uwaifo”) in the Zone (“he give his documents as help to a lord to secure a job). Uwaifo did for a little time pass on Odion’s earnings but then stopped and kept the money for himself.

Uwaifo is reported to have done the same to Spain Zonal Head when the Zonal Head first came to Spain….. running off with 9,800 Euros of which only 2,000 Euros was recovered after he was hunted down in hiding in Sevilla

Part 2 will be coming soon…….

Canada Zone Wahala

Details of an NBM pedophile ‘Nestor Omoruyi Amayo’ in the Canada Zone raping a 13 year old girl (over the period of a year… therefore since she was 12 years old). The NBM conducted their own investigation which included “Lord Kwesi Wiredo interviewing the little girl”. Also the NBM conducted an image laundering exercise to “protect Nestor’s name, by so doing, our (Neo Black Movement) name too”. Mr Nestor fled to Nigeria and is currently wanted by Canadian Police on rape charges.

 

Canada zone was informed that Mr. Nestor was being looked for by the police for rape; the rape of a 13yrs old girl who is the daughter of Nestor’s family friend. A man who housed him for 8 months when he got to Canada.

It is important to understand here that Nestor was a dedicated Axeman, a man who had his arm tattooed with the symbol of nbm, a man who was widely believed to be the leader of nbm in Toronto by the Nigerian community and one who was instrumental to the growth of Canada zone.
We held him in high esteem.

With the news of this rape, Canada zone quickly acted to protect Nestor’s name, by so doing, our name too. We immediately sent two men (Lord Kwesi Wiredo of Canada zone 2004 and Lord Bazi Bagada of FJ 91) to visit the family involved. They came back with unbelievable tales of despicable betrayal of trust.
Please note that Nestor had run to Nigeria at this point in time leaving behind his wife and 9months old son.

FACT:
The police report states that the little girl was raped; but this is not true. According to Canadian law, because the girl was under-age, when things like this happens, Child Services is called immediately and rape is always focus point. Moreso, the family said it was rape out of shame.

The fact is this: Nestor was having an affair with his family friend’s teenage daughter for more than a year until the day the girl’s mother found out because the little girl was in pain as a result of a tear in her virginal.

With all this information, we called Nestor (via Lord ABK), and he said that man was a disgruntled friend who is upset as a result of a business deal gone wrong.
We called him again, this time on a conference call with Lord ABK and Lord Bonafinga, and he again told them that everything is a lie and that the man and his wife are not being truthful. Even with our Elders telling him about the police report and that Lord Kwesi Wiredo interviewed the little girl, he still denied.

A Council of Elders meeting was then called to resolve the case; in that meeting, Nestor was called and he addressed the Council (with the phone on speaker) saying that he has personal issues with his friend, that his friend is trying to use his daughter to get back at him … but that other members of their families have intervened and that the issue was now resolved.

At this point, the Council asked Kwesi Wiredo to once again reach out to the little girl’s family.

After careful consideration, the Council had no choice but to protect the name nbm and all members of nbm who have teenage daughters. It was Council’s believe that Nestor betrayed his friend and slept with his teenage daughter; and that, simply put is pedophile. We still believe same today except other facts comes to light.

Funny enough, Nestor told our COE then that he would be back in Canada in 2 months, that was more than two years ago. It is our understanding that he is wanted for rape here in Canada and the day he steps his foot back here, he will be arrested. He knows this, hence he has refused to come back for his wife and daughter.

Aye my National Elder, please please, leave this man where he is, do not let him come close to your house if you have teenage daughters, and do not truth him with your wife either. He does not deserve to be an Axeman.
I have written this after due consultation with Lord Abebe Bikila of FJ88, Lord Bonafinga of Udi87 and my humble Zonal Head.

It is my hope and sincere believe that the National Council of Elders will act accordingly.

Thanks.

Aye Axemen!!!!!!!
