30 alleged Black Axe members have been apprehended by Italian police.
On Monday, April 26, Italian police announced the arrest of 30 alleged members of the Nigerian Black Axe mafia gang, which has been operating in various parts of the country.
According to police, members of the Black Axe, including their suspected chief, were apprehended in Italy after a series of raids across the nation.
Nigerian nationals were all apprehended. According to police, the suspects face nearly 100 charges, including mafia association, narcotics trafficking, illegal immigration, prostitution, computer fraud, and money laundering involving cryptocurrency.
State police, as well as officers from Rome, Rieti, Bari, Caserta, Naples, Reggio Emilia, Parma, Modena, Catania, Genoa, Messina, Potenza, and Terni, were involved in the “Hello Bross” activity.
Since its inception in Africa in the 1990s, the “Black Axe mafia has gained a reputation for ritual killings, mutilation, and rape,” according to RT.
Police said they had arrested a 35-year-old man from his home in the city of L’Aquila in the central Abruzzo region, who led the Italian “branch” of Black Axe. The parent organization of the gang is based in Nigeria.
According to police, “there is evidence that the members had a direct link with the Nigerian gang, drawing on the same language, symbols, and association practices.”
The majority of the suspects’ suspected offenses are web-based scams, such as buying numbers of cloned credit cards on the dark web for online shopping with bitcoin.
According to Reuters, Italy’s Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese said the country was demonstrating its commitment to combat organized crime.
