Authorities of the Lagos State Police Command have warned cultists in the State reportedIy getting set to celebrate what they call “7/7 Neo Black Movement of Africa a.k.a. Black Axe Day” on Thursday July, 2022 to keep away from Lagos in their own interest.

In a statement on Wednesday, the Command’s spokesman Benjamin Hundeyin; a Superintendent of Police (SP) said “credible intelligence at the disposal of the Lagos State Police Command reveals that some hoodlums and cultists have perfected plans to celebrate what they call “7/7 Neo Black Movement of Africa a.k.a. Black Axe Day” on Thursday, July 7, 2022.

“In view of this, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, (CP) Abiodun Alabi in very strong terms warns these groups with intent to scuttle the peace being enjoyed in the State to shelve their plans.”

The Police boss has consequently revealed that the Command’s tactical teams, Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) in collaboration with other sister

agencies are fully prepared to clamp down heavily on organisers, leaders and progenitors of such sinister groups whose aim is to cause wanton violence in the State.

“The Command is therefore using this medium to appeal to parents and guardians to warn their children/wards to steer clear of any unlawful gathering or society before, during and after the said date. Also, hoteliers are by this release warned not to allow their facilities be used for any cult related gathering as owners of such facilities will be liable to prosecutions.”

While urging all residents of Lagos State to be law abiding and vigilant, Alabi has enjoined them to go about lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation.
