NBM in Europe (Shocking Video)

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

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

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

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

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

Reports stated that 22 people had been murdered.

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

Here is the original post

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

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

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

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

I got information this morning about one such incident.

The following video I must stress is highly disturbing.

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

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

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

That’s how bad it was.

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

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

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

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

77 of them!

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

what is the black axe?

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

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

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

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

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

what is nbm africa?

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

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


what are the nbm idiology?

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

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

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

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


what is the motto of nbm?

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

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


what is the constitution that guide nbm?

The constitution of the NBM can be found here:


what is nbm code of conduct?

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

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


black axe national head is who?

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

Ese Kakor (Lord Dauda Kairaba Jawara) is the current National Head of the NBM.

The National Head
The National CP
The Chairman, NCOE
The Zonal Heads
The Zonal Chief Priests
The Zonal Chairmen

The “Hierarchy of 7” refers to the structure within the Temple (university) and is as follows:

Axe Head (been the correct term… often wrongly called ‘Temple Head’)
Chief Priest
Chairman and his COE (Council of Elders)
Chief Butcher and his Butchers (Now rebranded as ‘Marshalls’)
Chief Ihaza and his Ihazas
Chief Eye and his Eyes
Chief Crier and his Criers

who are the founding fathers of nbm?

The ‘Founding Fathers’ of the NBM:

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

And if you were to ask someone who thought of themselves as a Black Axe member they would say:

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

Spot the difference?

The NBM were founded on the 7th July 1977….. 44 years ago today.

And if you were to ask someone who thought of themselves as a Black Axe member they would say: 7/7/77

The coincidence is eerie.

The first Head of the NBM was Aye Waziri Zako…. known as John Okogie to his Mother.

The position of Chief Priest did not appear until the academic year of 1979/80 and was occupied by: Aye Banda Kamuzu who was a pharmacy student called Femi.

The position of CP had been created to replace the positions of ‘Right Hand’ and ‘Left Hand’.

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

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


who is ibn godidi de saddest?

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

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

Notably he is appalled by what the NBM has become today. Often seen describing it as an “evil organisation” and “hijacked by evil forces”.

Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC)

who betrayed nbm?

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

nbm first temple in nigeria?

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

The first ever temple was FJ1 = Futa-Jallon.

Later modified to FJMT = Futa-Jallon Mother Temple.

This is Uniben (The University of Benin).

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

where did the black axe started?

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


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

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

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

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

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

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


why inikpi dragon is called second murder high temple?

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

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

what is the functions of scribes in nbm?

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

how many colours are in nbm?

The colours of the Neo-Black Movement are Black, White and Yellow.

Black – Signifies our identification with the Black Race and the dignity thereof

White – Signifies Peace and purity of mind and body

Yellow – Signifies strength and intellect.


what and what does 7 represent in nbm?

The ‘7’ represents the AXE!


what is the meaning of 147 in black axe?

147 is the magic number

1 – represents a blade (knife)

4 – represents a firearm (gun)

7 – represents the AXE!

We often see it written also as: 0147

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


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

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

what is the nbm oath of allegiance?

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

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


who introduce broken into nbm?

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

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

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

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


what is the meaning of region body in nbm?

I think you mean the ‘Regional Body’.

Section 15 of the NBM Constitution states:

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

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

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


what does egede mean?

There are three types of egede….

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


what is the meaning of itj in nbm?

ITJ = Intending Ju

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

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


what is the meaning of aye in nbm?

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

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


how many body forms are there in nbm?

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

Historically though there was also the Right and Left Hand.

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


what is the meaning of bam in nbm?

‘Bam’ has several different meanings.

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

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

although this is commonly accepted to be incorrect usage.

Another is as a secret acronym:

B = Black

A = Axe

M = Man


who is korofo in nbm?

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

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

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


what is the meaning of lp in nbm?

LP = Local Production

A bit more detail and some examples live here


what is nbm trinity?

Reason + Courage + Grace = NBM Trinity


what are the names of politicians who are members of neo black movement of africa?

Sadly there is no shortage of politicians who are NBM members.

Some are detailed here.


list of super stars in neo black movement of africa?

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

One very obvious example is Davido.

Others include:

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

davido nbm strong name?

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

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

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

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

For example: Lord Malcom-X, FJ1 98.

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

Such questions easily root out imposters.

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

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

Fela Kuti is another Strong Name of Nigerian origin.

They are few and far between.

what are strong names of national black movement?

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

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

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


top ten black axe strong names?

The NBM’s most popular strong names was documented here


is santos payama a black axe member?

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

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

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

The first “National Head” was Austin Edoror (Lord Lord Muta Karibu) in 1984 (Until 1987).

Austin Edoror is heavily criticized by the Founding Father’s as been where it all went wrong…

The first NH is often misattributed as been John Okogie but he was simply the first Axe Head of Uniben. There was no National Head (leader of all temples) until 1984.

1st in 1977: Futa-Jallon Mother Temple – University of Benin, Benin city.

2nd in 1979: Kanta Ethiopia 1 – Delta State University Abraka

3rd in : Udi HT in 1980 – Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma

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

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

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

in nbm what is the meaning of sm?

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

Austin Edoror recruited new members purely for the purpose of fighting. Picking only the strongest he could find (often ex fighters from the Biafra/Nigeria civil war).

ayes confraternity war clash victims?

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

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

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

who is augustus bemigho-eyeoyibo?

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

i want to join nbm movement?

No you don’t!

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

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

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

Say no to cultism.

Get a real job.


77. were is nbm heading to?

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

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

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

Happy metal day again!

AYeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

International Index of NBM Wahala – Part 2

International Index of NBM Wahala – Part 2

Welcome to the Austrian Jungle

Aye Axemen!!

I personally do not see what is wrong with holding Ini in the jungle or ITs in secret locations in Nigeria. We in Austria hold our Jolly in the Jungle and ITs in Locals, and Austria is a Police country. They have not come to boost our IT ground for once even with all the latest technologies at their disposal.

What we should check is the manner in which ayes carry out their activities and this never ending fighting and killings. When there is fighting my brothers, the Police will do everything possible to make sure they wipe out such groups whether be it in Nigeria or diaspora.

Recently the police boosted the Neo-Nazi group in Germany because they are an anti-social group even when they are German citizens, but the same Police have visited the venue where we were having a European Regional IT in Germany, though they know we were axemen, but since there was no crime committed or against us they left the same way they came.

Lord Kaduna Ezeogwu once posted here that NBM items and logos are displayed in Police stations in Benin, Nigeria; there are warnings against members by authorities, my brothers do you think where such alerts exist the police will not arrest members of such groups? Surely they will, it has nothing to do with our traditions but everything to do with fighting and killings that has become the norm in NBM.

So if we want things to go accordingly without the police arresting members, then we have to change this our business as usual attitude. Na so I see am reach.

History of the (Nasty) Netherlands Zone

The Netherlands Zone…. Home to some of the nastiest individuals the Neo Black Movement of Africa has to offer. Though let’s be clear: This is typical Zone.

There was a time when the NBM’s  “Welfare Committee” had to work tiresly but sadly this is not the case anymore. Netherland’s Zone today are hard at work doing what the NBM does best: Crime.

 

“the fact that in that period most of our members arrested and the zone needed to buy calling cards on a regular basis and because we had no money we introduced collections in the general I.T for welfare.Welfare was now responsible for taking care of its members in need.”

 

The Netherland’s Zone as well as been top fraudsters are also an extremely violent bunch. We’ll maybe never know how many murders they’ve carried out on Dutch soil but it’s clear they are not a bunch to shy away from the Black Axe’s ethos of extreme violence

 

My Head, Chairman and my bam Elders,

 I want to use this opportunity to thank you all especially our legal adviser (Lord Kamuzu Banda) for his view toward the solution of Lord Samora Michel issue. This issue needs to be solve as soon as possible to prevent future problem. The Eye-boy that stab Lord Samora Michel must be seriously death with to show that he really touch an Axe-man.

My Chairman (Lord Amilcar Cabral), your calling of emergency IT on Saturday the 14th of November is very importance because a cry of an Axe-man echo’s in the ears of Axe-men. Despite the fact that I am not on ground at present, but i am fully available to be use by the Netherlands Zone to fight against this so called, Eye-boy and to bring peace to the Netherlands Zone.

My elders, I am strongly in support of Our Legal adviser views toward the solution of Lord Samora Michel issue and _I believed that, this will lead to the proactive steps to prevent future difficulty.

Dodorima and may Korofo protect you all,

Lord Muta-karibo (Udi 96)

 

 

Below is an NBM historical account of how the Netherlands Zone transformed itself from a forum (few members) to a fully fledged Zone (as it seen today). Also following that is a dump of historical documents from the Zone such as IT meeting minutes, income/expenditure spreadsheets, attendance sheets and a few other tit bits (some of which cover other European Zones)

 

THE HISTORY OF NL ZONE (FROM FORUM TO ZONE)

The Netherlands zone started with few Aye / Lords meeting in different locations in Amsterdam, i.e (A’dam spot and kraienness), This first few lords were (1) Lord Isaac Adaka Boro ju name Fuzzy. (2) Lord Chaka de Zulu ( ju name Ogidon) . (3) Lord Ibn Marsha (ju name Rufus) (4) lord Komo Karome (ju name Martin) In their second meeting came Lord Thambo Mbeki ( ju name Henry ) who heard Aye’s were meeting here in Amsterdam. However there were some other Aye’s / Lords that were living in Leeuwarden and Rotterdam. LORDS IN LEEUWARDEN (1 ) Lord Thomas Sankara ( ju name Mikado ) ( 2 ) Lord Kamuzu Banda ( ju name O J ) (3) Peter Abraham ( ju name Tony)
LORDS IN ROTTERDAM (1 ) Lord OMamuta ( ju name Jerry ) (2 ) Lord Ginuwa ( ju name Timoty Ajayi ) (3 ) Lord ? ? ? ( ju name Odion ) A joint meeting of all Aye’s / Lords that were known then,that were living in the Netherlands was held, and alot of lords were present.The lords that were present at the I.T in Denerod Bar were present were: 1. Lord Isaac Adaka Boro (Fuzzy), 2. Lord Kamuzu Banda (OJay), 3. Lord Shaka De Zulu (Charles Ogidon), 4. Lord Ibin Marshall ( Rufus) 5. Lord Komo Karomen (Martins), 6. Lord Thomas Sankara (Mikado), 7. Lord Peter Abraham(Tony), 8. Lord Didakimatin(Dennis Fela) 9. Lord Thambo Mbeki ( ju name Henry) e.t.c.
In the I.T Fuzzy was appointed as coordinator due to his age in the movement to -ordinate the new forum, and it was agreed by all men present in that IT except Thambo Mbeki( ju name Henry) who also wanted that same position,and due to Thambo Mbeki disagreement there was a comotion,and so everybody left. However,due to in-activeness of the coordinator,Lord Isaac Adaka Boro(Fuzzy) coupled with his shuttling between Amsterdam and Spain the forum was almost falling apart,Aye’s were now meeting only at parties, churches and festivals. In the kwakoe month of July,as men were in kwakoe, then came Richard Ihensekhien(Mammar Ghadaffi) of Udi, from kwakoe men moved to a Bar in Kempering called Mama’s Bar.

FIRST GOVERNMENT Lord Moammar Ghadaffi (ju name Richie Ihensenkien)

Itohan was held for several times in Mamma’s bar, we use to meet twice in a month on Sundays. The first election was held in Mama’s bar. Moammar Ghadaffi( Richie) was made the Head, Shaka de zulu (Charles Ogidon) was the C.p, Ibin Marshall (Rufus) was the Crier, Yakata Mohamed (Frank Obelife) was the Butcher , Peter Abraham (Tony ) was the Ihaza, Idris Aloma (Festus ) was the Eye.
Nevertheless, the election wasn’t recognized by some lords from Leeuwarden. i.e Lord Kamuzu banda(Ojay), Lord Ginuwa (Timo) Thomas Sankara (Mikado). The lords from Leeuwarden claimed that all the positions had already been shared among lords in Amsterdam without their awareness. Discontent from the election led to some minor infighting. during the infighting, the lords claimed they have 10 lords in Leeuwarden,so they declared their own zone. In other for peace to reign among lords in the Netherlands the then head, Lord Moammar Ghadaffi, decided to move the next I.T. to Leeuwarden. In the I.T in Leeuwarden, it was discovered that they were only four lords present. In order to move forward,Lord Moammar Ghadaffi said he will dissolved the government in the next I.T that will be held in Amsterdam in 2 weeks time but the Leeuwarden Lords said it will be convenient for them in 3 weeks time due to the distance. Then it was agreed by all parties that the election will be held in three weeks time. On a Sunday in dec 2000, I.T was held in Amsterdam. Around 30/?lords were present on the I.T / Election day. After the consultation by the C. priest, electoral body was appointed by house and the government was dissolved by the then head ( Moammar Ghadaffi).An electoral body was appointed .A new election was held that same day. The persons that contested for the position of headship, were Moammar Ghadaffi (Richie) and Thomas Sankara ( ju name Mikado). After the elections, most officers retained their positions.Moammar Ghadaffi (Richie) retained the headship and made Thomas Sankara(Mikado) his chairman. The then head (Moammar Ghadaffi) presided over an I.T, which was the only IT he held before he left for Nigeria,and while in Nigeria he Registered the Zone.The head spent about six months without official contact with the zone.
During the Head’s absence, the chief priest Lord Shaka de zulu (Ogidon) was acting on his behalf for 4 months. on the Fourth month the head was suspended by the C.O.E Chairman Lord Thomas Sankara( Mikado).The C.priest Shaka de Zulu was made an interim head,The chairman gave the head Moammar Ghadaffi ultimatum to contact the zone on the 5Th month and if he doesn’t come back before the 6Th month, a new head will be sworn in.Thomas Sankara asked lord Idris Alooma(Festus ) to pass the message because he was the only Lord having contact with him. The suspension led to ramifications in our new zone, the Chairman Thomas Sankara(Mikado),and the C.priest Chaka de Zulu were on one side,the suspended Head Moammar Ghadaffi,the Butcher,the Ihaza,the Eye, Crier were on the other side.

When the Head came back another electoral Body was apointed by the Interim Head and Lord Komo Karome(Ernest) was apointed as the chairman of the Electoral committee.An Election was held that same day in Grubehoven(Ganzenhof),Lord Moammar Ghadaffi (Richie) retained the headship position,Thomas Sankara(Mikado) loosed the chairmanship position to Lord Martin Luther King,Chaka de zulu(Charles Ogidon) loosed the position to Jew name Daniel (Lord ????). Lord Moammar Ghadaffi ruled for some months, then left for Nigeria and he didn’t hand over,some phone calls where made to him,so he relinquished his office.

SECOND GOVERNMENT Martin Luther King (Marcus) 2003 – AUG.2004.

In 2003 another I.T/elections was held in a hall around Ganzenhoef,after consultations by the C. priest, the old government was dissolved and electoral body was formed. (1)Lord Martin Luther King was elected head (2) Ju name Frank Ajakaye was made Chief Prist (3) and the chairman was Thomas Sankara of the COE .
The new government led by Martin Luther introduced rotational I.T and also introduced our by-law.After a while Lord Martin Luther (Marcus) left for England to live with his family, he did not hand over is government like his predecessor.

THIRD GOVERNMENT (AUG.2004 – March 2005).

The Crier cried out for our regular saturday I.T,the venue was in a hall in EGELNDONK in Amsterdam Bijmeer men gathered as usual interacting and waiting for the IT to commenced. As men were about settling down fully ,then came in some lords including Lord Fayinka Ju name Atanechus Ogbomen(Wino),Ju name Frank Ajakaje, Lord Fayinka(ju name Suki),Lord Kamuzu Banda(ju name O J,and without the knowledge of many lords sitting already that that was going to be the end of that era. Many lords were caught by surprise!That day the government was dissolved, it was like a bloodless coup.

(1) Lord Sundiata ( ju name T J ) was made the head, (2)Ju name Nosa was the Chief priest, (3) Ju name Adeyan was Butcher. (4) Lord Moghosutu Butheleze(Owens)/ Ogidon was the Ihaza. (5) Idris Alooma( ju name Festus ) was the Eye. (6) Lord Oromila ju name Osagie was the Crier.

Events from June 2000 – November 2000
Those in Leeuwarden (Ojay, Mikado, Peter and Paul Onwuka(?)) were not at the I.T. Fuzzy was appointed Head and are not even aware how those in Amsterdam decided on the positions);
As at the time those in Leeuwarden received the information about an I.T. through Ogidon, he also informed them that Fuzzy was the Head they had chosen in their previous meeting;
Fuzzy was not present at the I.T. the Axe Men in Leeuwarden came to in Denerood bar. The information was that Fuzzy was in Spain. Aside from those already mentioned, also present at the I.T. in Denerood bar were: Didan Kimathi (Odion), Paul Onwuka, Malcolm X (Joshua);
After the introduction at this I.T. Kamuzu Banda informed those present that he does not believe Joshua was a bona fide Axe Man. Before going into the issue of Malcolm X being a true Axe Man or not, an issue resulted with Tall Fela (Dennis) about him doing something (what?) the previous time. Since there was talk of Tall Fela being matched, he threatened to call Koti. This threat effectively led to the end of that I.T. and a suggestion was made to head up to Kwa Koe festival. Since those outside Amsterdam (Ojay, Mikado, Peter and Odion) could not get a guarantee of where they could sleep, they decided to head up from Denerood bar to Lelystad to spend the night.
The next invitation to those in Leeuwarden for an I.T. also came through Ogidon. He also informed them that Richie was the central figure I.T.’s providing the avenue for Men to meet and that he was the Head (Not aware how Richie came into the scene after Fuzzy and how they filled the positions);
Ojay, Timo and Jerry honored the invitation in September 2000 and there they introduced as Leeuwarden and Rotterdam Zone. They met Peter, Joshua, Ogidon, Richie, Rufus, Henry, Festus, Obelife, Tall Fela and two others that can’t be recalled at the moment in the I.T.
Those outside Amsterdam refused to recognize the structure on the ground based on what those who attended that I.T. saw. They were also of the opinion that only some weeks back Fuzzy and others were at the helms of affairs and thus did not understand the rush to have position filled with new persons without an all encompassing election of all known Axe Men then;
Richie upon receiving the misgivings of those outside Amsterdam, took it on himself to reach out to Mikado, who was the central point of sorts for those outside Amsterdam who were unwilling to join in building just one structure. He was able to convince Mikado that the application for a Zone in Netherland would only succeed if all were on board and there were old hands as members. Mikado eventually convinced the others;
Upon Richie’s effort to encompass all, an I.T. was fixed for Sunday October 8 2000 in Leeuwarden. The I.T. in Leeuwarden was held in an African restaurant (Just Axe Men and the owner) as birthday/ I.T. combination. In this I.T. it was agreed that we will rent a venue in Amsterdam, all should reach out to any Axe Man they know of and do an all inclusive election. Don’t recollect if the dues of 25 Guilders was also fixed on this day. This effectively meant the end of the governing structures in place. The first Sunday of December was fixed as the date for the election so we will rhyme with the days of Zonal I.T.’s in Nigeria;
No confirmation yet of 10 Axe Men turning into 4, convenience of 3 weeks instead of 2 weeks.

1st Election December 2000
The venue of the election was Grubbehoeve which was arranged by Ogidon. On this election day Ernest (Komo Karume) was chosen as the Chairman of the electoral committee and Ojay (Kamuzu Banda) was chosen as the secretary of the electoral committee, probably because they signified they were not interested in any position;
All positions (Exco and COE positions) were by election after being nominated for the position. There were also few Lords external Lords particularly from Italy the day who also voted. Mikado could not have contested against Richie since it was already pre-agreed by those outside Amsterdam to go for the COE positions;
The Congress Elected Richie ZH, Ogidon CP, Obelife B1, Joshua B2, Peter Ihaza, Festus Eye, Rufus Crier. The Congress also elected Mikado COE Chairman, Jerry Elder, Timo Elder, CY Elder (?), Odion Elder and maybe one other person that can’t be recalled at this moment.
The Head cannot appoint or make someone the Chairman of the COE.
1st administration January 2001 – June 2001
In the first I.T. after the election (January 2001) Peter presided as the most senior Exco member that was around during the I.T. On this I.T., the venue we did the election failed us. One of the Lords in Leeuwarden arranged for us to hold the I.T at his friend’s house on the 2nd floor of Grunder;
At the end of the February I.T., Henry was matched for being rude to the Head before Richie left for Nigeria in December 2000. No need stating the obvious, since in the absence of the Head the CP acts. Dues were 25 Guilders and the venue was also 25 Guilders (?). In Nigeria Richie put in the application for NL Zone (in the 2001 convention of?). Richie also paid the initial Annual dues and Convention dues to show our seriousness;
Circa the month of June 2001, the COE suspended the Head at the end of the general I.T after every effort to hear from Richie as Head since he left for Nigeria failed. The COE also decided that if by the next I.T. the Head had not returned he will be removed;
By the July I.T. Richie had returned. During this July I.T. the congress adopted a motion moved by (Richie?) for dissolving all existing structures (Exco and COE) and for new elections;
The Chairman does not have powers to remove or suspend the Head, the COE/Elders do. Nobody was made interim Head (this does not exist in the Movement) and there was no unrest over this issue or any on the one side & on the other side.

2nd Election July 2001
No confirmation yet if there was and/or the composition of the electoral Committee for this election;
Richie was re-elected as Head, Daniel became the CP and the rest positions were retained by same persons (?);
Marcus became Chairman, Ogba became Elder, Timo and Jerry retained the Elder position. No confirmation yet about Odion. CY, Mikado and some others declined positions in the COE;
That same July, Marcus sent the draft of what (in 2002 or 2003?) became our By-Laws to Richie as a roadmap for drafting ours;
Note: Marcus and Richie had met before now at the Convention 2001 where Marcus stated that he was not aware there was any structure of NBM on the ground in the Netherlands. They were both given the assignment to go work together so as to achieve the approval of the application for a Zone by the NCOE.

2nd administration and crises July 2001 – January 2002
From August 2001 we lost the venue we had been holding our I.T. in Grubbehoeve since the election in December 2000 (aside from January 2001). The August general I.T. was held at an open field opposite Kwa Koe hall. As this general I.T. was going on, a COE I.T. was also taking place in Venserpolder (in Ogidon or Festus house);
At this COE, a majority of Elders reprimanded the Chairman and passed a vote of no confidence on him for allowing those that accompanied the Head (Rufus and CY) to stay all through the COE proceedings they held in Rotterdam in July. Upon the interceding of the Head and Mikado via phone, the Elders backed down from removing Marcus as COE Chairman and they later joined us at the I.T.;
The September and October I.T. were in? and this happened?
Between the August I.T. and the November I.T. the Head was in Nigeria (?);

NOVEMBER 2001 THE BEGINNING OF CRISES: Since we still did not have a venue in Amsterdam, Richie fixed the November I.T. in Marcus house in Sittard;
During this November I.T. the Head informed the house that he did an investigation while in Nigeria on the membership of Ogidon and Joshua; The results of his investigation were 1) Joshua was not a bona fide Axe Man since his Ini was unclear, 2) Ogidon was not a bona fide Axe Man since his credentials were unclear, he did not attend Ikpitan as claimed and was not qualified to be blended into the Movement;
After statements by Richie to the house, Iro Kabila (Jermaine) also claimed that the Head that blended Festus already handed over or was not the Head as at time he did that blending. They (Joshua did not attend) were then asked to excuse the house till further investigation is concluded via the National Body;
At the December I.T. which the COE Chairman did not attend at a restaurant in ????, the accused men came to the I.T. The Head ordered them to leave, but Mikado opposed their leaving saying the charges against them were still mere accusations and they should be allowed to state their side of the story before being asked to leave. The move to forcefully eject them from the I.T. venue and the counter move to keep them at the I.T. led to rowdiness and some pushing and shoving. This eventually led to us abandoning the restaurant as I.T. venue since cops were already arriving downstairs;
Fewer Men later re-assembled at another restaurant in the binnenstraat of ???? in Kraainest. While there we heard that Cooper and Owens (Didikpo) were held by Koti in relation to the rowdiness that happened earlier. Luckily they were released the same day. At this second venue things seemed okay, but eventually there was a fracas with major role reserved for Frank (James Hornu) against Rufus and Jermaine and to an extent Frank (James Hornu), Richie, Mikado and Ogba amongst others.
Following this fracas a COE meeting was convened to discuss the matter on request of Elders. The Chairman agreed to a COE meeting in Rotterdam, but stated he would not be attending. The Head did not attend the meeting as well. The Elders who attended sent out an email after the meeting suspending Frank and Mikado from the Movement. They also removed Richie as Head and nominated CY to replace him (?).
Richie and some others refused to recognize his suspension and removal, while the Elders, CP and some others also refused to recognize Richie as Head. Cant recall if CY accepted this nomination.
After the consultations of the Chairman with all parties on finding a way out of the imbroglio, an I.T. was called for in Amsterdam in February (?). But those that sided with Richie’s removal boycotted the I.T. At this I.T., it was agreed to upturn all the decisions the Elders took. Donations were also started towards Marcus attending the 2002 Convention and for the payment of the annual/Convention dues. They agreed on a follow up I.T. which was fixed for Rotterdam.

3rd administration Caretaker Committee March 2002 – January 2003
At the March I.T in Rotterdam with Richie, Marcus, the Elders and others in attendance, Marcus put a call through to the NH (Jasper) who was then vacationing in America. After Jasper spoke with dramatis personae, the agreement was reached to dissolve the Exco and COE and setup a Caretaker Committee that would run affairs before a new election is conducted. Marcus was then chosen as Caretaker Committee Chairman and Daniel was chosen as the Caretaker Committee CP. Marcus upon accepting his appointment requested he be allowed to have Kamuzu Banda as Scribe of the Committee and the house agreed to this request. During this I.T. donations continued towards Marcus attending the 2002 Convention and for the payment of the annual/Convention dues;
A total of +500 Euro plus was eventually raised between the 2 I.T.’s of February 2002 and March 2002. Marcus retained 300 Euros for flight ticket and gave Rufus who was also going to Nigeria 220 Euros to pay into NBM accounts in Nigeria;
Due to the unavailability of a venue in Amsterdam, all the I.T.’s called by the Caretaker Committee (aside from the Emergency I.T. in August 2002) were held in the same private residence in Rotterdam;
In the April and May I.T. this and this happened?;
The issue involving Ogidon and Festus who were still awaiting the results of the investigation on them so they could start fellowshipping with Axe Men again was resolved at the June I.T. The Caretaker CP presided over this I.T. where Suki threw light on Festus case (see sent minutes for details);
In between the June I.T., the August I.T. and the August Emergency I.T. hosted by Timo the primary issues was how we could conclude the registration of NL Zone with the National Body and the Chairman’s unwillingness to continue in his position (see minutes for details);
During the Summer, the Chairman Caretaker Committee attended the first London Zone NBM International Conference on our behalf;
In the September I.T. the Chairman Caretaker Committee informed the house that our Zone was approved at the 1st NCOE after the 2002 Convention and showed the house the registration certificate from the National headquarters. The Chairman Caretaker Committee also returned the 300 Euros he was supposed to purchase flight tickets with since he was unable to attend the previous Convention (see Jpeg file, the minutes and attendance of the I.T.);
The available minutes, attendance lists, registration payments, due payments and payment for late coming for the months June 2002 to January 2003 were uploaded to the Zonal email address before January 2007. They give insight into who did what who did not do what.

4th administration August 2003 – June 2004
Do not recall or have documentary evidence of what happened between February and August. We finally moved I.T.’s back to Amsterdam after Festus negotiated a venue at Hoptille in Amsterdam;
On Sunday 3 August we held an election to have a new Exco and COE for the Zone. The election effectively brought the Caretaker Committee to an end. During the election Festus was elected as Eye after being nominated, Timo elected as Ihaza after being nominated, Chocho elected as B after being nominated and Frank (James Hornu) elected as CP after being nominated. The position for Crier was not filled on this day;
The process for filling the positions of Head, COE and Elders was done differently than item 2 above since the house insisted they did not want to nominate or do elections for these positions. All members that at the time had 10 years membership of the Movement and were present were asked to go outside and resolve amongst themselves who fills what position. On getting outside the I.T. venue, all agreed that Marcus was the best option for the Zone as Head. But Marcus was reluctant in view of the fact he was already planning to go complete his studies in Nigeria;
At the conclave Ojay Banda was appointed the COE Chairman and the others effectively became the Elders. The Elders were: Clinton, Jeff, Ogadi, Opute Bartho, CY and ?. At the first COE I.T. after the appointments (in the CP’s house in Muiderpoort), Kube was appointed Crier of the Zone. All appointments were duly ratified by the Congress;
Marcus as Head attended the (1st) Regional I.T. in Madrid Spain at the end of the Summer of 2003. Upon return and presentation of the receipts of his Journey, the Ihaza reimbursed the cost he made for flight tickets;
During this period 1) funds were raised and sent to Frank who was Schooling in Spain, 2) funds were also raised for Emitemi to pay house rent, 3) Jasper joined the Zone during this period, 4) on the prodding of Suki based on the fact that there was entertainments at the I.T.’s held in Rotterdam, 3 of his housemates (Ezaza, ? and ?) hosted us in Hoptille, 5) in response to the call of the National Body membership verification forms were shared and filled, 6) the draft by-laws Marcus had was reviewed and approved as Zonal By-law, 7) Marcus was shutteling between Nigeria and Netherland, 8) circa December 2003 a conflict evolved between the CP (Frank) and the B (Chocho) over some private issues. This led to them not attending I.T.’s or attending spasmodically. A match was later ordered for them and were requested to not let their private matters affect NBM activities, 10) the end of year was hosted by Kube or Suki (?), 11) No I.T.’s were held February and March (?) due to burstings targeted at 9Ja persons by Netherland Koti; the COE Chairman made copies of the Abia Zonal Jolly CD available and him and others bought the CD’s for 20 Euros to raise funds for the Zone;
There was noting like rotational I.T.’s. Aside from the June 2004 I.T. held in Rotterdam, all I.T.’s held when Marcus was Head were in Hoptille Amsterdam.

Handover preparations June 2004 – August 2004
In the Summer of 2004 the COE Chairman attended the European Regional I.T. in Torino Italy on behalf of the Zone. He was joined at the Regional I.T. by Ogidon who was on visit to his wife in Italy at the time. At this meeting as per the message that was given to them by the house previously, they opposed the issue of blending that was part of the agenda of the meeting;
Somewhere in April/may the Head informed the Chairman that he felt it was better in view of his regular absence from I.T.’s and the feud between the CP and B that it was better if he stepped down as Head to allow for a new Head who would always be on the ground for I.T.’s. After the Head and the Chairman rubbed their minds on who could be good a replacement for Marcus that meets the requirement of not living in Amsterdam and was not involved in what most of us were doing at that time, the choice fell on Taju. It was agreed that the Head should make sure he comes to the next I.T., while the Chairman gets the other Elders on board before the I.T. date. Since the Chairman and the Elders did not know anything about Taju, the Chairman passed the task of gathering intelligence about Taju and his immediate plans to Festus and CY;
Previously at the Convention of 2004 the order of precedence in the Movement was changed making the COE Chairman 2nd in the order of things in the Movement in the new NBM Constitution. This was generally interpreted to mean that in the absence of the Head the COE Chairman takes charge. It was much later after the handover 2004 it became clear that it was not the intention of the drafters of the new Constitution for the COE Chairman to act in the absence of the Head. They also introduced permanent membership of COE and the NCP being a member of the NCOE
The next I.T. was held in one of our houses in Rotterdam (can not recall the reason it was not held in our venue in Hoptille) with Jasper in attendance. Taju also came (late) with CY and they also left early that day since they had other appointments. The pre-planned handover from Marcus to Taju could not take place on that I.T. since the house on the motivational speech of Jasper urging the COE to first put things in order before a new Head comes in, rejected having a replacement for Marcus immediately. Funds were raised to pay off our outstanding 2003 and 2004 Convention and annual dues after the opposition of the Chairman to the Head’s proposal to take from the money in the Zonal coffers members had raised towards BB. The summer of 2005 was eventually the first time the Zone was eventually able to pay the Convention and annual dues from monthly dues collected from members;
After the June general I.T. the COE later agreed that in view of the laxity of a lot of Exco members and COE members it would be better if we chose a fresh Exco and COE to takeover the affairs of the Zone. Consultation and investigation of capable hands to run the Zone began in earnest and on the 1st of July 2004 the official resignation letter of the Head was received by the Chairman, with NH Zembulu (Dan Akhilele), Santos Payama (Dafe – Regional Coordinator) and Festus (Zonal Eye) on CC. By the end of July 2004 the COE had compiled the names for all position. The Chairman on behalf of the COE talked with all those the COE selected for the new administration and informed them of those being positioned for the different positions. A visit was also arranged to Taju;
Those selected by the COE for Exco were: Taju (Head), CP (Nosa), B (Aideyan), Ihaza (Owenzo – Didikpo), Eye (Festus) and Crier (Victor). Those selected for COE were: Chocho (Chairman), Suki, Ese, Theo and Kube;
The COE planned the Handover to take place in the I.T. of August 2004.
Handover August 2004
1. The handover could eventually not hold on our I.T. day of 7th of August 2004 due to the fact that the people who own the venue where we hold our I.T.’s in Hoptille were on vacation. The Chairman sent out an email on this day to apologize to Zonal members if any confusion might have arisen due to the change of date. He also informed them that the Zone could not just use any place that was available like a member house since the I.T. would be serving as Zone’s Handing over Jolly of the Exco and C.O.E. positions;
2. Since confirmation was received that the people of the venue would not be back by the weekend we re-fixed the handover, the Eye (Festus ) arranged an alternative venue at Echtenstein 100 V in Amsterdam. The venue was confirmed to all Man by the Chairman through email and the Crier cried out over the venue and the handover.
3. On the handover date the Chairman who was conducting the handover (the Head was in Nigeria) came late since his vehicle with all the drinks for the Handover broke down along the way. Upon his arrival at the I.T. venue it turned out he had left the oath of office in his car while transferring things from his car to the car he eventually used to come to the I.T. Sunny (RIP) and Atani joined him to draft the oath of office from memory;
4. The handover was eventually done with the COE Chairman swearing in the Head (Taju) and Taju swearing all others for their positions. The house upon the objection of Atani and Suki did not ratify the appointment of Kube as Elder and Victor did not turn-up for the handover. The handover was fully hosted by the Zone with food and drinks;
5. There was nothing like a ‘bloodless coup’ as the actual handing over was a culmination of 3 months of well advertized work by the then COE.

Please history committee cross check the enforcing of registration since within the time frame there were just 3 registrations (Sherriff, Syke and Koko (?) in December 2004)
History committee note : It is the COE that conducts election and handing over, not the Exco. The Exco only organizes the venue and logistic for handover/Jolly;
Victor was eventually never sworn in (?) as Crier and was replaced by Osagie, but cant recall if Osagie was actually sworn in;
Ogidon acted as Ihaza upon the leaving of Owens (now Didikpo) for Spain, but was not sworn in.
Note history committee: Marcus actually moved to join his family in England in 2007.
After point 1 -3 have been verified next stanza of my treatise will be the handling of I.T.’s, the arrest of the COE Chairman, the Ini of Fela, the financial controversy over the attendance of German Zone’s Conference and the handover of March 2005.

May your 7 never be blunt!
