Many members of the Nigerian mafia in the Turin and Ferrara areas of Italy were on Wednesday, October 28, arrested by the police.

The gang, called Arobaga Vikings or Norsemen Kclub International which is notorious for dealing in prostitution and trafficking of hard substances, is organised in many Italian cities in form of cells, ANSA reports.

Among the 31 members recently nabbed in Ferrara were Emmanuel Okenwa, otherwise called Boogye (50 years old), and AfroBeat DJ (aka "King of Ferrara").

A judge in Bologna, Gianluca Petragnani Gelosi, explained that the gang has the criminal intention of wiping out other Nigerian mafias and afterwards take over their domains.

Meanwhile, residents of Abaliki in Ebonyi state were on Monday, October 26, thrown into pandemonium as the voice of gun shooting was heard continuously.

According to an eyewitness, the gunshot was an offshoot of the duel between the security operatives and hoodlums after Central police station Onuebonyi was set ablaze.

The scenario created a scene of fear as residents close to the area were reportedly running helter-skelter, scampering for safety. The nation had been engulfed in heightened unrest as a result of the demonstration against the brutality of the police nationwide.

Although the controversial police unit, Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), which sparked the outrage has been disbanded, Nigerian youths are still adamant on total reform on the police system.
