Black Axe Confraternity is a cult group, and the Ebonyi State Police Command has detained a possible member of its membership.


This was verified in Abakaliki on Sunday by DSP Joshua Ukandu, the State Police Public Relations Officer.


“On Saturday, police operatives on patrol arrested a suspected member of the Black Axe Confraternity at Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi.



“Police recovered three locally-made pistols, six live cartridges, one live 7.62mm and three live 9mm ammunition from the suspect.


“The suspect confessed to being a member of the Black Axe Confraternity,” he added.

According to Ukandu, the suspect will be charged after the inquiry is finished.
