You know that something is seriously wrong with a country when the police have their buildings erected by a crime syndicate that is prohibited by the laws of said country. Corruption of the highest order!
The Nigeria Police on Saturday accepted and also commended a building donated to it by the Neo Black Movement of Africa.
The Deputy Inspector General of Police coordinating police operations in the South-south states, Mr. Emmanuel Inyang, thanked the movement for constructing and handing over the building to the Cross River Police Command.
Inyang who was represented by the Cross River Police Commissioner, Mr. Hafiz Inuwa made the commendation in Calabar during the 13th annual lecture and 40th anniversary celebration of the movement.
He stated that the Neo Black Movement through its philanthropic activities has shown that it was an organisation with good intentions for the development of society.
According to him, the building was constructed with surprising speed and will go a long way to assist the force, which he said, is underfunded with inadequate personnel to effectively police the nation.
He also called on Nigerians to man to assisted the people through provision of working tools and supply of information to enhance their operations.
The Neo Black Movement, also known as Black Axe is regarded by many as a secret cult group which has wrecked havoc in many Nigerian universities.
Many student have been killed and many more maimed for life due to activities of the Black Axe in several crashes with other secret cult groups in the nation’s ivory towers.
The movement had sometime in 2015 dragged the police to a Federal High Court in Lagos for arresting some of its members who were said to be having a meeting at an hotel in Ogba area of the state.
Also, last year, more than 20 members of the Black Axe who were described as a Nigerian mafia gang, were rounded up during raids in Italy.
The suspects were accused of being involved in a catalogue of criminal activities, from prostitution and protection rackets to drug dealing and human trafficking.
Meanwhile, last year, a member of the Black Axe was reportedly killed, and several others injured during a gun fight with policemen in Owerri, Imo State
Operatives were said to have descended on the group allegedly terrorising residents of Egbu community.
The deputy commissioner of police in the state, Dave Akinremi, told journalists that several suspected cultists were arrested during the raid after a gun battle.
