“NEO-BLACK MOVEMENT SIMPLY MEANS NEW-BLACK MOVEMENT. ANY BLACK PERSON WORLD-WIDE CAN BELONG TO THE NEO-BLACK MOVEMENT. IT IS NOT THE NEO-NIGERIAN MOVEMENT OR THE NEO-AFRICAN MOVEMENT OR EVEN THE NEO-BENIN MOVEMENT. IT IS THE NEO-BLACK MOVEMENT. AFTER NIGERIA, BRAZIL HAS THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF BLACK PEOPLE ABOUT 80 MILLION AND THE UNITED STATES WITH ABOUT SIXTY MILLION. IF WE PUT THOSE TWO COUNTRIES TOGETHER WE HAVE ALMOST THE POPULATION OF NIGERIA . THE SURVIVAL OF THE NEO-BLACK MOVEMENT LIES IN SETTING UP BRANCHES IN BLACK COUNTRIES WITH THE BLACK INDIGENES OF THE PLACE. I WANT TO SEE BRAZILIAN BRANCHES AND AMERICAN BRANCHES OF THE NBM WITH AFRICAN AMERICAN MEMBERS NOT BENIN MEN LIVING IN AMERICA. NBM IS NOT A CLUB. IT IS A MOVEMENT. MOST OF THESE PEOPLE CREATING PROBLEMS IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES THINK NBM IS A CLUB AND IN CITIES LIKE LONDON GATHER TO DRINK PEPPERSOUP AND DANCE. THESE MEN SHOULD BE TOLD TO FACE THEIR JOBS,BUSINESSES AND FAMILIES AND LEAVE NBM ALONE. MOST HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT NBM IS ABOUT AND THINK BECAUSE THEY LIVE IN LONDON OR NEW YORK THEY ARE BETTER THAN THE AXE-MAN IN ABA. I ALWAYS TELL THEM THAT A LIZARD THAT LEAVES NIGERIA AND GOES TO LONDON IS STILL A LIZARD AND NOT A CROCODILE. IT MIGHT BE A LONDON LIZARD BUT BEING IN LONDON DOES NOT TURN IT INTO A CROCODILE. MOST OF THE SO CALLED FOREIGN ZONES ARE POPULATED BY ALL MANNER OF CHARACTERS FROM NIGERIA MOST HUSTLING. HOW CAN SOMEBODY WHO DOES NOT HAVE HIS PAPERS OR WHO IS PURSUING FOUR JOBS EVERY DAY HAVE TIME FOR THE NEO-BLACK MOVEMENT. WHEN I LIVED IN LONDON SEEING MOST OF THESE MEN JUST MADE ME UNHAPPY AS MOST WERE JUST OLD JAGUDAS FROM NIGERIA. SOME ONE LIVING IN AMERICA CALLS HIMSELF AN FF AND IS REJOICING THAT DOLLAR IS ONE TO 500 NAIRA. NOW WHAT SORT OF FF IS THAT. IT REMINDS ME OF THE MONKEY WHO WAS REJOICING WHEN THE TREES IN THE FOREST WERE BEING CUT FORGETTING THAT IT WAS ITS OWN VERY HOME THAT WAS BEING DESTROYED. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT GIVES ME HOPE IS THAT KOROFO THE KULT OF THE ONDERGROUND IS ALREADY CAUSING CONFUSION IN THE MIDST OF THE INTERNAL ENEMIES OF THE NEO-BLACK MOVEMENT. UNTIL THEY EMBRACE THE REAL VISION OF THE NBM ,NOTHING WILL GO RIGHT FOR THEM.MANY OF THEM ARE ON LOGGERS SPYING ON WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE BUT KOROFO IS ALREADY AT WORK. WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT, WE SHALL FLOAT PROPER BRANCHES OF THE NBM ALL OVER AFRICA AND THE BLACK WORLD WHICH WILL DISCUSS THE SERIOUS BUSINESS OF PAN-AFRICANISM AND NEO-BLACKISM NOT PEPPERSOUP DRINKING AND DANCING.” – FF IBN GODIDI

I was a little dumber after reading the BBC article but this one is quite good.
Edit: Having got hold of the names I can say the article is quite inaccurate when it suggests these guys formed a “low key” off the grid type of criminal existence. They are full blown overt NBM members flaunting their stuff for everyone to see.

L’AQUILA – Head of the Italian Black Ax, the Nigerian mafia with activities in 80 countries around the world, beheaded. The head of the Italian cult worked in L’Aquila.
Seki or “Titus”, the head of the Italian cult of the Black Ax , one of the most dangerous Nigerian mafias operating in over 80 countries in the world, had landed in Pozzallo in 2014 from a boat from Libya . He was then assigned to a reception center in L’Aquila , where he remained for about two years, before leaving for Reggio Emilia. But “Titus” had then decided to return to L’Aquila , for two reasons: the central position and close to Rome, which allowed him to better manage contacts with the leaders of the cult and the tranquility of the Abruzzo capital, where it was possible to pursue one of the basic rules: low profile. A low profile that however did not escape the operators of the Flying Squad of the Police Headquarters of L’Aquila , directed by Dr. Marco Mastrangelo , who tonight, with the help of the SCO (the Central Operational Service of the State Police) and the Mobile Squads of Rome, Rieti, Bari, Caserta, Naples, Reggio Emilia, Parma, Modena, Catania, Genoa, Messina, Potenza and Terni, have finalized the “Hello Bros” operation , carrying out 30 precautionary measures in prison issued by the Gip Guendalina Buccella upon request of the Attorney Michele Renzo and the Deputy Attorney Stefano Gallo , and subjecting 25 other suspects to search. Heavy protests: criminal association of mafia type, ex 416 bis , for the Black Ax, the most dangerous Nigerian mafia active in the world.
To illustrate the details of the operation, the Quaestor of L’Aquila, Gennaro Capoluogo , the Director of the Anti-crime Center, Francesco Messina , the Public Prosecutor of L’Aquila, Michele Renzo , the Deputy Prosecutor Stefano Gallo and the SCO Director, Fausto Lamparelli .
“The investigations – underlined the Attorney Renzo – were finalized thanks to the wealth of knowledge and ability to pay attention to what is happening in Italy. We often wonder about the presence of foreigners and integration, but there is no integration without respect for the rules “.
Nigerian mafia, the tentacles of the Black Ax from L’Aquila to all of Italy.
In L’Aquila, therefore, the head of the Italian cult worked, a 35-year-old Nigerian who managed the criminal activities of the association, through a summit composed of “Small Boy” operating in Reggio Emilia, “Bross Irene” , who in Naples, “Esosa” from Bari, “Obalige” from Caserta and “Osamuy”from Rome. This is the criminal summit that managed the affairs of Blaxk Ax in Italy, with the head, “Titus” in L’Aquila. While not disdaining the “classic” dealing and prostitution sectors, “Titus” preferred the “low profile” imposed on the cult, which in fact operated mainly in online scams or in the so-called “romantic scams”. The earnings all went to Nigeria, but “collections” were also made to support the families of the arrested affiliates. The investigations started collaterally with the finalization of the “Papavero” drug operation. Among the couriers of that drug dealing system, just “Titus”, remained under observation thus allowing the police to behead the national leaders.
Blacke Ax, origins and criminal history.
As explained by the Attorney Michele Renzo , the Black Ax was originally born as a university brotherhood operating in Nigeria with very healthy intentions, on the themes of anti-colonialism and anti-racism. Over time, however, the organization has lost its original connotations, resulting in a real criminal association which, according to the latest FBI report , is operational in over 80 countries around the world and is considered the most dangerous. The organization is territorially divided into “cult” which can correspond to the national territory, as in the case of Italy, or wider. At the head of the Italian cult, therefore, the 35-year-old who had chosen L’Aquila as an operations center.
Affiliation: just like the “homegrown” mafias, as explained by Commissioner Benedetta Mariani , head of the Judicial Police Office of the Prosecutor’s Office, and at the time of the facts with the L’Aquila Mobile Squad, the affiliation to the Black Ax takes place through very strict protocols and rituals : in the meantime, you must be introduced by a sort of “godfather” who acts as a “guarantor” of the loyalty of the new affiliate, who was subjected to tests of courage and rituals in the woods, based on drug “bombs” or the so-called Kokoma. “Titus” was a “fundamentalist” of the Black Ax, or – in addition to the low profile – required that the new generation be affiliated only in Nigeria.
A mafia that, like the more advanced mafias, has gradually abandoned the “explosive violence” against individuals, as noted by the Attorney Renzo, for “violence on systems”, such as the economic one. In the two years of activity under investigation, in fact, the Black Ax has mobilized about 1 million euros, also using bit coins.
Operation “Hello Bross”, thanks from Mayor Biondi.
“Thanks and commendations” were addressed by the mayor of L’Aquila, Pierluigi Biondi , to the Public Prosecutor’s Office and to the State Police of the police headquarters of the capital for the operation that is leading to dismantle the Black Ax, the Nigerian mafia rooted in Italy with offices in several cities, including L’Aquila.
“To the district anti-mafia and anti-terrorism investigative direction of the Public Prosecutor’s Office, the questore, the flying squad and the judicial police, who have brilliantly conducted the investigations for a long period, the women and men of the police engaged in this difficult operation against this trend of organized crime go the most fervent congratulations for the brilliant action they are conducting – added the mayor Biondi – Of course, to learn that for two years the boss of this organization, which had a wide circulation and that the investigators considered extremely dangerous lived in our city gives rise to more than one apprehension. But it is reassuring that the leader of this criminal structure, dedicated to drug trafficking, illegal immigration,
“It is also by virtue of the attention and skills of the police forces, as well as the general correctness of the citizens, that the Abruzzo capital is among the most peaceful and safe cities in the national field in the various surveys on the quality of life” concluded the mayor Biondi.
Italian police have carried out raids across the country, arresting some 30 people suspected of operating for the Nigerian Black Axe mafia syndicate.
Police say they face about 100 charges including drug and people trafficking, prostitution and internet fraud.
The gang allegedly used the Bitcoin cryptocurrency to carry out clandestine financial transactions on the dark web.
Black Axe emerged from Nigeria in the 1970s, where they carried out rape, mutilation, and ritual murders.
They went on to build a powerful international network.
“There is evidence that the members had a direct connection with the Nigerian gang, drawing on the same vocabulary, symbols and affiliation rituals,” Italian police said.
Those arrested are accused of using Bitcoins on the dark web to buy the details of cloned credit cards, which were used for online shopping sprees.
The arrests took place in 14 provinces across the country and included the Black Axe’s alleged leader in Italy – a 35-year-old man who lived in L’Aquila, in the central Abruzzo region, Reuters news agency reported.
“This proves the ability of the judiciary and police forces to fight against old and new mafia groups which are trying to extend their criminal reach and expand their business,” Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese said in a statement.
Who are the Black Axe?
They are one of the most notorious secret societies to have emerged from Nigeria.
The Black Axe surfaced in the 1970s and were originally known as the Neo Black Movement. Its founders said the group’s aim was to “liberate” the black race.
But at universities, the group no longer seems to be driven by any political ideology. Instead, Black Axe members are accused of numerous killings and sexual attacks.
Other Nigerian secret societies, also referred to as confraternities and campus cults, have names like Vikings, Eiye (a word in the local Yoruba language for bird), and the Buccaneers.
They have a chain of command similar to militia groups, use code words and have insignia bearing the favourite weapon of the cult, along with its colour.
Members are promised protection from rival gangs, but it is mostly about power and popularity.
These secret societies are banned in Nigeria, and hundreds of members have been arrested and prosecuted over the years. Nevertheless, they continue to operate in the country, especially on university campuses, where they still attract new members.
A renewed cult clash between members of Black Axe and Eiye confraternity groups, has reportedly resulted in the death of two persons in Benin City, Edo State.
The recent clash was said to have begun on Saturday following the beheading of one of the victims identified simply as Ogbomo, allegedly by a rival group.
He was reportedly hacked to death at about 4pm, along Esigie Street, by four assailants.
Obviously angered by Ogbomo’s death, the other group was said to have retaliated his killing on Monday afternoon, as they shot dead a commercial bus driver, along 3rd Circular Road, by Esigie Junction.
An eyewitness who simply identified himself as Okharedia, said: “I and other passengers boarded a commercial bus from Ekiosa market to New Benin.
“Half way into the journey, an Audi saloon car drove dangerously from behind-obstructing our bus and forced the driver to stop.
“The next thing was rag-tagged gunmen came out of the Audi car, dragged the bus driver out of the steering and fired him at closed range.
“There was confusion as they [the hoodlums] fired sporadically and also dispossessed all passengers of their belongings.
“I strongly suspect it is cult-killing, because I heard one of them was shot dead on Saturday. I think the government and security agencies should act fast,” he stated.

The investigators of the Flying Squad of the Foreign Crime and Prostitution Section had discovered the existence of another secret cult called “Viking”, with an operational cell also in Palermo
Operation Showdow. Hard blow by the state police to one of the most aggressive groups of the Nigerian mafia, active in Palermo. A precautionary custody order was carried out in prison for mafia-type association, serious injuries, exploitation of prostitution and drug dealing, issued by the investigating judge at the request of the group of magistrates of the District Anti-Mafia Directorate, coordinated by the Deputy Prosecutor Salvatore De Luca, against of 11 people. Research is still ongoing for three of them. In the past years, following the “Black Ax” and “No Fly Zone” operations, the investigators of the Flying Squad of the Foreign Crime and Prostitution Section, had discovered the existence of another secret cult called “Viking”, with an operating cell also in Palermo.
Emeka Don was also a member of this cult, already the recipient of the arrest of a suspect on July 9, 2019 and in the past the victim of attempted murder by one of the leaders of the cult “Black Ax”, Austine Johnbull, arrested and convicted of this crime. The subsequent operation called “Disconnection Zone” of July 2019 had led to the arrest of a crime suspect of 13 of its top members, so as to undermine the structure of the Vikings or “Supreme Vikings Confraternity”, whose members had been charged with the crime of criminal association of a mafia type. The Viking are a criminal association born in Nigeria, then spread to various European and non-European states.
It is characterized by having a hierarchically organized and branched structure throughout the national territory, with a strong intimidation capacity. The criminal association is mainly active in crimes against the person, above all in the occasion of clashes with the rival cult for the control of the territory and the supremacy within the Nigerian community; on drugs and against property. The purpose of the activities of the criminal team is to make the association stronger, both towards the associates and the Nigerian community and other Nigerian criminal groups.
With today’s restrictive measures, the Palermo Mobile Squad, it is explained, inflicts “another hard blow” to the Viking of the capital, reaching the capture of their leader, Parkinson Chukwuma, accused of management, promotion and affiliation to the group, with the aggravating circumstance of being an armed association. Alongside the members of the Viking Palermo there are also two other recipients of precautionary measures, George Oguike Obinna, known as “Okwele”, accused of brutal violence, and Frankline Duru, known as “Skorò”, who also carried out logistic activities, making his own restaurant available restaurant, in the heart of Ballarò, for meetings reserved only for members of the clan.
And it is precisely inside this place that the physical aggression by Emeka Don, Evans Ifeanyi Chukwu and Frank Chinedu took place, against a compatriot, guilty of not wanting to join the cult; the attack, also committed with glass bottles, had been so violent as to cause him to lose his upper incisors as well as several injuries to his face. The investigative investigations and the statements of some collaborators of justice, the investigators managed to demonstrate, in addition to the existence in Palermo of the “Viking” mafia association, also the presence of numerous prostitution houses in the historic center of Palermo, the “connection house “, and foreigners active in the sale of cocaine and heroin in the main town square.
“I’d go on to conclude that whereas the Italian security services have recently stated it’s a concern that the NBM could be become responsible for extremist activities then they are probably unaware of the NBM’s activities in Edo State.” – Feb 23rd
And on the 29th Feb:
Cultists belonging to the Aye confraternity have displayed the severed heads of one of their victims on the social media.

In a viral video displaying the severed head, the cultists said the deceased was an Eiye member living in Upper Sokponba that strayed to Ogiso area along the Murtala Mohammed Way.
They said they would behead many Eiye members and ensure they are routed out of Edo State.
The severed head might belong to a headless body found last Monday and dumped at Ikpoba slope close to Ogiso area.
Edo Police Commissioner, Jimeta Lawan, had on Wednesday paraded 26 suspected cultists, who he said were members of Black Axe, Aye, Eiye and Vikings confraternities.
