The Neo Black Movement of Africa
, also known as the Black Axe
, is a Nigerian student cult and criminal organisation. The Black Axe is accused of responsibility in a series of shootings and killings, including violent confrontations with other confraternities.
A representative of the Neo Black Movement of Africa has claimed to be separate from the Black Axe groups and has engaged in charitable giving.. According to the organisation's leader, Mayor Onyebueke, the Neo Black Movement "encourages the promotion of unity and cultures of black people world wide". However, Daniel Offiong reportedly claims that the Neo Black Movement's initial goals have degenerated into behavior that is "notoriously and brutally violent," which has become the cult's official policy.
The current President of the Neo Black Movement of Africa is Mr Isimeme Iriogbe. He and leaders of the group like The National Public Relations Officer, PRO of the group, Mr. Odinde Henry Onome and the Kwale zonal President, Mr. Tony Ndenemu claim that the group was made up of people of like minds to address some societal ills, adding that the group was not a secret cult society but an organization that believes in social justice and equality for all.
