2 Min Read

Police in some states have alerted the general public of potential secret cult-related activities, particularly initiations across Nigeria on June 7 (today).

DAILY POST reports that the Rivers State Police command on Saturday revealed that the Neo-Black Movement, NBM, also known as Aiye or Black Axe would be celebrating an anniversary on Sunday, causing tension in many places.

Spokesperson of the command, SP Grace Iringe-Koko, said that intelligence reports indicated that the cultists intend to initiate innocent victims into their group on July 7.

According to her, the Black Axe, one of the most dangerous confraternity in the country, may potentially engage in clashes with rival cults today.

She said, “The event, code-named Aiye Day or 7/7, is scheduled to be observed in all states of the federation, especially in institutions of higher learning.

“The command is aware of the antecedents of the confraternity, notorious for killings on campuses, inter-cult clashes, and other criminal activities of a violent nature.’’

The PPRO urged parents and guardians to keep close eyes on their children and wards during this period.

DAILY POST reports that the Edo State Government had also warned against unlawful gatherings by members of any cult group across the state.
