Pan-Africanist socio-cultural organisation, the Neo-Black Movement (NBM), at the weekend, restated that it is not and has never been a criminal group or one that supports hooliganism.

The group said it became imperative to re-emphasise its status as a law-abiding legal entity following two recent occurrences in which detractors linked to it in libellous claims.

But NBM of Africa, in reaction to the false claims, said: “The present leadership is engaged in regular internal house-cleaning and every suspected member who runs afoul of the law will be handed over to law enforcement.

“This is even more evidenced by the tracking down and handing over to the police in Edo State of the three impostors, John Omozele, Smart Ogbeide and Tajudeen Afesume, who brutalised and dehumanised a female Tik Tok user.

“They erroneously believed that the action would earn them membership of the organisation as their bids for membership had earlier been rebuffed. Our standard for intakes cannot be lowered to accommodate such persons.”

NBM’s Public Relations Officer, Chief Oluwatoyin Dixon, who articulated the group’s reaction, stressed: “Also as a follow-up to the resolve of the leadership, in the case of the prima facie criminal indictment of two members in Dallas, Texas, United States, they have been suspended indefinitely until they clear themselves of the allegations brought against them in the court process.

“We have announced repeatedly and over time that we are not a crime syndicate and have zero tolerance for crime and criminality. We, therefore, the state again that we will take legal action against media outlets and bloggers who continuously use the activities of some impostors to stereotype and malign the organisation.

“We are law-abiding and our members are contributing our quota to humanity’ development and progress. We will continue to engage and align with security agencies globally to ensure that criminals are brought to book as our motto remains: Social Justice and Equality For All.”
