Black Ax is spreading fear all over the world

BLACK AX: The Nigerian mafia is spreading all over the world, also to Scandinavia.

International press and US authorities do not distinguish between Black Ax and Neo-Black Movement (NMB), but refer to them as the same organization.
A Facebook page calls itself otherwise «NBM aka BLACK AX».

Black Ax likes to try to recruit members among Nigerian migrants, such as Don Emeka (pictured above). He claims to have been assaulted with ax by Black Ax members when he did not want to be part of their criminal activity, reports The Vice.

Machets, ax and glowing irons

Black Ax is called "Italy's fifth mafia" of the Danish Weekendavisen, who writes about street battles in Turin 15 years ago between Black Ax members and rival Nigerian Supreme Eiye Confraternity (SEC), which used machetes, axes, knives and red-hot irons in the battle for the drug market. More recently, the group has tried to recruit migrants, and a number of Black Ax members were indicted and convicted in Denmark in 2015. The newspaper writes that Black Ax is well organized, has a criminal strategy and political and financial contacts. The newspaper also claims that there is evidence of their presence in Denmark, and describes in detail the voodoo ritual used to force victims into submission.
