BENIN CITY – A dismissed Police Officer, CPL Efosa Igiebor was reportedly attacked on March 3, 2021 by some armed men suspected to be members of the most dreaded Aye confraternity popularly known as Black Axe known for its notoriety in the society.

Narrating his exprience to news crew while responding to treatment in a hospital, the victim, CPL Igiebor disclosed that the cult group were actually after his life to avenge the death of the leader of their group who was killed by operatives of the Police Force led by CPL Orhue Endurance.

He narrated further that since the incident which occurred in 2014 during a protest, four officers of the special force that killed the cult leader have been executed by the group who operate from the underworld, lamenting that other members of the Special Force unit are still on the run for their dear lives.

Lamenting the death of the four officers killed by the die hard group whom he said included, CPL Isaac Iboi, PC Samuel Adenuga, PC Illiyasu Musa and CPL Celestine Ogboi, Igiebor expressed fear over his life as the group operate facelessly, especial at the level of in security in the country.

The NIGERIAN OBSERVER contacted, the Edo State Police Command Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Chidi Nwabuzor confirmed the incident, saying the attackers were members of the most wanted cult group, adding that investigation into the matter was ongoing.

Corner Bam Wahala

Corner Bam = An unofficial initiation into the criminal organisation. Most commonly by the Zonal Head or Forum Coordinator who pockets the cash the initiate pays.

A happening that offten comes back to bite the (questionable) member in the future or used erroneously by other members engaged in power struggles to discredit what are in fact bona fide members.

The Nigerians standing up to sex-work traffickers in Sicily

Source: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-54903790

In the mountains of Sicily a Nigerian woman is leading a battle to help rescue women like herself from a life of forced sex work.

Osas Egbon opened up a shelter for these victims of trafficking on the Italian island in January – the first of its kind created by and for Nigerian women.

She currently has four women in their 20s, one with a baby – and hopes by the end of the year two more will join them.

On a hot September afternoon I drove up to see the shelter in a sleepy village – far away from the island’s capital, Palermo, so the women can be hidden away from those they are escaping.

It is a typical Sicilian village house with a large kitchen, a terrace with views out on to the verdant hills. The women each have their own rooms but share a kitchen and bathroom.

She was given the use of the property by an Italian friend.

Many Italians want to help Nigerian women, she says, but the trouble is that in a time of increasing anti-migrant sentiments, some other Italians do not want them to do so.

I first met Ms Egbon in 2018, three years after she and other Nigerian women had set up the organisation Women of Benin City.

It supports female victims of trafficking in Sicily – the majority of whom come from Nigeria’s Edo state, the capital of which is Benin City.

Ms Egbon was trafficked 18 years ago from her home there to work in forced prostitution.

She managed to pay off her traffickers – and now lives happily with her family in Palermo but she has a steely determination to stop others having to go through the same experience.

She and her friends were prompted to act after the horrific murders in late 2011 and early 2012 of two young Nigerian women.

They were aged just 20 and 22.

The murders shocked people in Sicily and put a spotlight on the harrowing experiences Nigerian women face in forced prostitution.

Such trafficking is not new but the numbers since the so-called migrant crisis began in 2015 have doubled.

According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), in 2016 of the 11,000 Nigerian women registered as landing in Sicily, 80% were trafficked with most ending up in forced prostitution.

After the women arrive, they must start paying their debts back to their traffickers – which can be up to $35,000 (£27,000) – through forced sex work, often leaving them in debt bondage.

In Palermo the women usually end up in the multicultural neighbourhood of Ballarò, where they are forced to work in what are called “connection houses” managed by “mamas”, or they work on the streets.

Before arriving in Italy the women are forced to swear juju oaths – a ritual ceremony overseen by spiritual priests where they promise never to denounce their traffickers to the police, to obey their “mamas” and to fully pay their debts.

The traffickers prey on the women’s spiritual beliefs so they become too afraid to speak up, fearing if they do so harm will come to them or loved ones back home.

For Ms Egbon these oaths are the biggest obstacle to freeing women from the trafficking gangs and a life of exploitation.

Two years ago she and her colleagues were greatly helped in their efforts by the Oba of Benin City, an influential Nigerian traditional leader, when he placed a curse on the traffickers – turning the tables on them.

At the time there were posters in Palermo announcing the news.

Since then Ms Egbon says it has become easier to gain the trust of the women and she has been able to help free many of them.

Women of Benin City runs a drop-in centre, offering advice and, importantly, emotional support, which sets the group apart.

The volunteers there understand the sexual relationships the women form with the traffickers, which also become a means of preventing their escape.

At the shelter, Ms Egbon says she wants to empower the women by giving them access to education – Italian classes and training that may help them get jobs.

She allows the women to stay in the shelter for one year so that they can recover from their traumatic experiences and prepare for their futures.

For Ms Egbon, who has become part-aunty, part-councillor, part-sister to the women, the shelter is a dream come true.

But to keep it open will be hard as she runs on a voluntary basis from donations.

Members of the Nigerian community in Palermo have stepped in to pool their resources together to give what little they can. And churches also play a role in raising money.

From my afternoon at the secret shelter, it was clear the women there felt safe and happy – recovering well from their trauma.

They sat braiding each other’s hair as they listened to Ms Egbon – and looking forward to the dinner to be made from goat’s meat I had brought on special request from Palermo.

Cult gangs on rampage in Edo, kill 20, take control of 3 LGAs

Sat in a comfortable office thousands of miles from the carnage a certain employee of Barking and Dagenham council was actively encouraging this. And why wouldn’t he… his organisation in full control of large areas of the now lawless Edo State.

Source: https://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2020/11/17/cult-gangs-on-rampage-in-edo-kill-20-take-control-of-3-lgas/

No fewer than 20 persons have been killed in battle between cult gangs in Benin,  following the degeneration of the security situation in the Edo State capital.

Three police operatives, including an assistant commissioner of police, who doubles as Benin Area Commander, were also victims of the gun-wielding cult members as they were shot around Upper Sakpoba area of the city while responding to a distress call.

The warring cult groups have literally taken control of about three local government areas, namely, Ikpoba Okha, Egor and Ovia North East, in the southern senatorial district of the state.

Areas such as Upper Sakpoba, 3rd Junction, Three House and St. Saviour, all in Ikpoba Okha local government area are under the control of rival cult groups suspected to be members of Black Axe and Eiye confraternities respectively.

The criminal cult gangs are also said to be in full control of areas like Medical Store Road, Textile Mill Road, and Ogida Quarters in Egor local government area, while Ugbowo, Isiohor and Oluku, in Ovia South local government area were also left out of the turf fight.

Taking advantage of the lax security situation as a result of destruction of police stations and patrol vehicles in the violence that trailed the EndSARs protests, the cult gangs now engaged in free-for-all unhindered fight, using dangerous weapons in broad day light, while residents scampered for safety.

In some occasions, the cult gangs engaged in robbery from one shop to another, following the absence of police operatives who have stayed off the streets since the #EndSARS protests.

It was believed that the security situation was further compounded by the escape of about 2000 inmates from two correctional centres in Benin where there jailbreaks during the violence which followed the EndSARS protest.

The Commissioner of Police in Edo, Johnson Babatunde Kokumo, had attributed the inability of the police to adequately respond to the degenerating security situation to the burning down of three police stations located along Sokponba Road many patrol vehicles in several other parts of the state capital in the violence.

He, however, said that his men were making frantic efforts to restore normalcy to the state.

NBM & Eiye Edo Killings Continue. IGP Deploys Special Squad.

With the NBM’s Henry Idahagbon no longer in his position of Attorney General  perhaps Chris Ezike’s “Special Squad” will have more success this time around. 

Source: https://thenationonlineng.net/cult-killings-igp-sends-special-squad-to-edo/

More persons have been killed in the ongoing cult war between eiye and aiye confraternities in Benin City, Edo state.

At Sokponba road, son of a Benin Chief was shot and rushed to the hospital where doctors are battling to save him.

Several other persons have been killed in different parts of the state especially in Murtala Mohammed Way, Second East circular and other areas.

A headless body suspected to be related to cult killing was Tuesday morning found at Third Junction by Ikpoba Slope.

However, to curb the cult killings, it was gathered the Inspector General of Police drafted a special squad to the state.

The Special Squad was said to have contacted a former Edo Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, to help them tackle cultism in Edo.

Ezike once led a special squad to Edo where cult leaders including those serving in the then administration of Adams Oshiomhole were arrested, paraded and detained for several days.

The intervention of Ezike saw many cultists fled the state and cult related killings stopped.

Sources said the Special Squad has begun raiding of black spots.

Edo: 15 Killed as NBM and Eiye Clash

Edo State has seen a fresh spate of violence in the State. At least 15 murders related to a cult war between the NBM and the Eiye Confraternity in the past week.

Mr Crusoe Osagie, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy giving a little nod and a wink suggesting he knows who’s involved.

He’s stated: “anyone who used delinquent youths to cause mayhem in the state would not be spared” and the local government were sounding “a note of warning to persons disrupting public peace and security in the state”

A similar warning was issued a little over a week ago with the suspected protagonists named (EPM/NBM Members) who he ordered to be put under “surveillance”.

15 killed in Edo cult clash

More than 15 persons have been killed since Monday February 17 in renewed cult war across Edo State, The Nation has learnt.

It was gathered that the killings were to mark the one year anniversary of the killing of two rival leaders of Aye and Eiye confraternities.

Eight persons were killed on Tuesday at Nomayo Junction, Aifuwa and Three House areas along Upper Sakponba Road in Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area.

Witnesses described the scene as a war theatre.

One man said over 30 persons hid inside his shop at Three House Junction while the cult boys were shooting intermittently.

At the notorious Third Junction, four persons were killed while others were killed in different parts of the state.

It was gathered that some suspects arrested in connection with last year’s killings, especially two leaders of Eiye and Aye confraternities, were released last month.

Policemen were later seen at Third Junction arresting suspected cultists but residents said they were arresting innocent traders and artisans.

Police spokesman Chidi Nwabuzor said he was yet to be briefed on the cult killings, adding that the police have a right to randomly arrest people within the vicinity of crime, release the innocent and prosecute suspects.

The state government has decried the increase in cult-related killings in the state.

In a statement on Thursday, Mr Crusoe Osagie, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, said the state government would not condone any act of violence.

He said that anyone who used delinquent youths to cause mayhem in the state would not be spared.

Osagie said it had become expedient to sound a note of warning to persons disrupting public peace and security in the state.

He noted that the government had directed security agencies in the state to bring violators to book.

“We are working closely with the Nigeria Police Force and other relevant security agencies in the state to arrest the rise in cult clashes.

“We assure that these clashes will be contained,” he said.

Osagie appealed to parents to keep a close eye on their wards and children and monitor their whereabouts so they would not be used to do the bidding of desperate persons.

 

 

War in Edo 2020 – Violence, Bombs, Gunmen, False Flag Terror and The NBM.

It’s not click-bait… It’s Edo State politics.

What i’m starting to notice about news reporting in Edo State (and Nigeria generally) is that the press pick up on individual stories but very rarely seem to link them into what are clearly ‘mega-stories’ of significant public interest.

Another all out war in Edo State looms as the next governorship election draws closer and the first shots have been fired (very literally).

Usually it’s one political group against another (say APC v PDP). However this year the APC currently have full control of Edo State and the power struggle is an internal one. It’s already turning very nasty.

Two sides have formed. One group supporting the current governor: Godwin Obaseki

The other group supporting a breakaway faction hoping for the instillation of: Osagie Ize-Iyamu

The breakaway faction (supporting Ize-Iyamu) have formed an internal “pressure group” called The Edo Peoples Movement (EPM). Whilst their counterparts supporting Obaseki have formed The Obaseki/Shaibu Movement (OSM).

The pressure group EPM consist of a nefarious bunch. A mix of cultists, cultist utilizers and terrorists. Their idea of “pressure” is the use of violence, bombs, gunmen, false flag terrorism and the NBM.

A good article here documents how the two sides are comprised.

Many of the same names just happen to appear in this blog post from 2016 (which also details EPM’s Adams Oshiomhole’s historic relationship with the NBM and cultists generally)

Other notable figures in the EPM aside from Adams Oshiomhole are: Osaro Obazee (NBM), Tony “Kabaka” Adun (NBM) and Hon Henry Idahagbon (NBM). Just to name a small few. Most of the EPM in fact seem to be of notably bad character.

Tony “Kabaka” Adun is the hired thug you hire to hire hired thugs. He was weaponized by Adams Oshiomhole during his governorship election and rewarded with a government role which saw him extorting (through brutality and murder) the population of Edo. He’s now a billionaire. Quite an oddball one.

Hon Henry Idahagbon is the former Edo State Attorney General responsible for the release of hundreds of cultists arrested for murder some years ago.

And last but not least is the EPM’s governorship hopeful himself Osagie Ize-Iyamu. Ize-Iyamu is the character mentioned here in this post referred to as “Kpelebe” and is notably at the time of writing awaiting a court trial for corruption.

The unhappy NBM member stating “The politicians wants to control NBM for the thugs Mayor have been supplying and using to collect vast amounts of money from the government (through) kpelebe”

It’s fair to say the EPM have a very strong affiliation with the Neo Black Movement. Both historically and currently today.

So where is the violence, bombs, gunmen and false flag terrorism?

This is where it gets interesting….

On one hand Governor Godwin Obaseki seems to be playing by the book. He recently ordered the arrest of Adams Oshiomhole accusing “Adams Oshiomhole and his co-dissidents in the proscribed Edo Peoples Movement (EPM) were causing violence and crises in the state”

“Oshiomhole’s unholy romance with the EPM has continually threatened the peace in the state, causing bodily harm to Edo people and destruction of property worth millions of naira.”

“Oshiomhole along with his lieutenants in the proscribed Edo Peoples Movement (EPM) resorted to the use of explosives and other dangerous weapons in some parts of the state, thereby endangering the lives of law-abiding citizens.””

Governor Godwin Obaseki also ordered and carried out the demolition of Tony Kabaka’s multi-million dollar luxury hotel that was built of the grounds of a primary school. Even despite Kabaka employing two lions as security guards.

However the EPM are claiming otherwise and are claiming Governor Godwin Obaseki is out to kill them. Their claims are somewhat non credible.

In October 2019 Adams Oshiomhole claims he is set upon by a horde of thugs sent by Governor Obaseki. He claims his own army of “APC Youth” countered the attack and nobody was hurt. The police responded by saying no such incident had occurred and the story was fabricated.

Next it was the NBM and EPM’s Henry Idahagbon who was subject to a high profile alleged assassination. He claims that assailants arrived in three cars to his Benin City office and fired from the road into the third floor of his building. Somewhat baffling to me that hired killers would expect to hit anything located in a third floor office from the ground.

Edo State police said they were unaware of any incident having taken place but Henry Idahagbon’s aide claimed “If I take you upstairs now, you will see things for yourselves and you will see the bullet holes on the wall”

EPM’s Lawrence Okah was next to be claiming to be subject to an equally hapless series of attacks. First he claims that gunmen arrived one night and “I heard gunshots. They shot at my bedroom. The police came and picked 52 bullets from my house”.

The following week he claims to be the victim of an attempted bomb plot to kill him. Again not a single person is even scratched by the incident. A bomb goes off at his gate and an un-exploded device is found close to his bedroom window.

During this incident it just so happens Osagie Ize-Iyamu is present at the property. Very curiously he offers an explanation of what didn’t happen: “Who will go and throw a bomb in his own house because he wants to do mischief?”

Osagie Ize-Iyamu been in the orbit of similar mischief back in 2014 when he claimed (his new best friend) Adams Oshiomhole had ordered the bombing of Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s wife’s dental office. Adams Oshiomhole claiming Ize-Iyamu and his cohorts were “stage-managing assaults on its agents to be used as pretext by its thugs to attack officials of Edo State Government”

Which is exactly what Governor Obaseki and the Edo State Government is asserting is happening with these recent incidents. They claim the EPM are staging attacks against themselves to blame the government.

The state government described Ize-Iyamu, Oshiomhole and their alleged cohorts as the common denominators of political violence in Edo State.

“On the 19th of October, 2014, this same Ize-Iyamu announced that his house along Dennis Osadebey Way, GRA, Benin City, where his wife carries out her dental practice was bombed and at that time, he pointedly stated that Oshiomhole, who was then governor of the state, was responsible for the attack. From that time till now, there has been a cessation of the use of explosives and other dangerous weapons in causing mayhem and heating up the political space in the state.

“It is, therefore, rather curious that with the same Ize-Iyamu coming back into the political space in the last three months, extreme political violence has resurfaced with bombs going off in parts of the state and gunmen attacking politically exposed persons.”

 

The Edo State government recently released a press release on the whole debacle detailing their theory of the EPM’s motive for carrying out the attacks.

 

The Edo State Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Hon. Paul Ohonbamu, has said the former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Osagie Ize-Iyamu and members of the proscribed Edo Peoples Movement (EPM) are working towards forcing the Federal Government to declare a State of Emergency in the state.

This followed the use of explosives and other dangerous weapons by persons linked to the group in causing mayhem and heating up the political space in Edo State.

Ohonbamu, who spoke with journalists in Benin City, reiterated that the state governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki is not prone to violence and has nothing to gain in threatening the lives of opposition members.

He said it was laughable that the bombings have continued to follow the same pattern, noting, “In the past two weeks, we have had incidents of bombings in the state allegedly orchestrated by the members of the Edo People Movement (EPM) who went ahead to point accusing fingers to the Obaseki-led administration.

“The genesis of the whole problem started with the inauguration of the Edo State House of Assembly (EDHA) as the group, EPM, accused the governor forgetting that he doesn’t inaugurate the House but rather issues proclamation. They tried to use the National Assembly, the Senate and Federal House of Representatives against the governor but failed. Now their option is to resort to bombings to create the impression that the state is not safe so that the President will declare a state of emergency in Edo State,” he added.

He noted, “The recent moves in deploying bombings have merely portrayed their weakness and fear of electoral defeat. The defeat is sure and it is in fixed deposit. Osagie Ize-Iyamu was defeated before and will be defeated again any time any day. What is happening now is not a surprise as the intention of the EPM is to embarrass the Edo State Government by creating the impression that the state is not safe and the government is not doing well in terms of security but their plans have failed.

“Violence is a vice, which Ize-Iyamu imbibed right from childhood as Oshiomhole told us how Ize-Iyamu bathed people with acid while the pastor was schooling in the University of Benin (UNIBEN).”

The commissioner urged the people of Edo State to remain calm as the state remains peaceful, adding, “There is no cause for alarm as the security architecture is effectively keeping the state safe for all who reside in the state. The EPM wants to create the impression that the state is not safe, so that President Muhammadu Buhari will declare a state of emergency in Edo State. They should wait till the party primary and show how strategic they are by winning.”

 

 

It would seem to be a fair assessment of the situation.

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.

Activities that are pulled right out from Adolf Hitler’s book of tactics and that of far right elements in the orbit of Operation Gladio and other such other things.

Interesting weeks and months ahead in Edo State.

Suspected cultists behead revenue collector in Edo

 

South_Africa_Imiigrant_Attacks_Cultism-696x464

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NBM “ANTI-CULTISTS”

Details of Neo Black Movement members engaging in “Anti-Cultist” activity….

Lord Oginga Odinga III (Ju name: Marshall) hits back at accusations he worked against the NBM by taking in part in an “Anti-Cult organisation” at Edo State University.

He insists: “I JOINED THE ANTI-CULT TO PROTECT THE INTEREST OF AXEMEN”

and

NO AXEMAN WAS EXPELLED,AND THE ONLY PUNISHMENT THAT WAS GIVEN TO AXEMEN THAT WAS ARRESTED AND BROUGHT TO MY OFFICE”

and he points out Edo State was not the only example where the NBM headed fake anti-cultism groups:

“THERE WAS ANTI-CULT IN UNIBEN,DELSU AND AUCHI POLY,UNILAG, YABATECH, MOSTLY HEADED BY AXEMEN TO PROTECT THE INTEREST OF AXEMEN”

I’m sure the Neo Black Movements international “partners” The United Nations will be proud of the NBM’s tireless work against cultism.

Unhappy NBM Member – Part 5

An unhappy NBM member expresses his displeasure at seeing Dr Mayor providing NBM members as “thugs and killers” to the Edo State government:

1. Integrity in my small brain means a man that do not have double standards.
a. The use of Police to arrest ayes and beat up those that have different political views and aspiration from the Mayor and His Godfather Kpelebe. When as a Benin Zonal Head he ordered that an aye be played for inviting the police to investigate a robbery in his house involving another aye.
1. Edo wimpy and co were beaten up in GRA while holding a meeting
2. Hon Mathew AN OBOTE LORD  arrested and detained ayes and put them in prison in ogba Under mayors regime
3. The use of ayes to settle land disputes in Benin, leading to the death of one of them
4. The beating up of the eslewhile benin zonal head by ayes from FJ while mayor was in benin and nothing was done, but he was quick to beat up wimpy for hold a meeting of ayes.
5. The burning of the Benin Arena Under his regime and nothing was done.but he is quick to arrest ayes with Police.
6. His immature appearance and disgraceful speech he made with Prof Wale Soyinka on CNN with the colllaboration of Kpelebe.
7. The use of Ayes as Political thugs in EDO state.
8. Explain to me, How a Man that is not from Edo State has an Official Car from the Edo state govt. (Please do not insult me by saying it is a rumour because I saw it.)
9.How come Mayor has so many lands in Benin, this is why He is referred to in benin as 200 BY 200.  Call Benin from your base in Japan and ask
IF it takes the wisdom of korofo to actualise dreams In NBM, we have given mayor two years to try but his failure is there for all to see. Please name the achievements of Mayor in the past two years.
All the politcal appoints we had before he came on board we are losing, can’t even win nominations anymore and he is suppose to be pursuing a politcal agenda.
What has mayor done to warrant a re-election, NOTHING. why do they want him back. I will explain.
In Edo state politics, It is lucky vrs Anenih. On the two sides of the camp are Lords of the NBM , On one side is Mayor (lucky) on the other side is EPA Francis. The politicians wants to control NBM for the thugs Mayor have been suppling and using to collect vast amounts of money from the government thru kpelebe. They feel without Mayor as NH, it will be difficult to get these ready army of thugs. while the other camp is fighting to install their own candidate to provide an NH that will do what mayor has been doing for lucky thru kpelebe.
NBM has become a supplier of thugs and killers , that is why when they want to give political appoints to lords, it is either CH of Motor parks or agency responsible for towing vehincles or collection of tolls in markets. Do your research!
Mayor and His cohorts are a disgrace to NBM, lets get a fresh person to move this Movement in the right direction.Lets get someone outside the NCOE and present Nexco to pilto the movement in the next two years.
Omar Bongo, Mantennasa, Roxy, Idemudia, many many more lords that have stayed away because of the disgrace Mayor has brought this movement into.
