Cultism: 19 Students Sentenced to Six Years Imprisonment in Borno

The High Court in Maiduguri, Borno state, on Wednesday, October 20, sentenced 19 students to six years’ imprisonment each for cultism.

The presiding judge, Justice Umar Fadawu, held that there was sufficient evidence proving that the students committed the offence of conspiracy and management/membership of an unlawful society.

Reports claimed that the convicts were arrested by the police in September 2019 in a hotel in Maiduguri for being members of an unlawful society called Neo Black Movement a.k.a Black Axe.

The judge after considering the pleas from some of the convicts and their counsel sentenced them to six years each on each of the two counts without an option of a fine. He added that the prison terms shall run concurrently starting from Wednesday, October 20.
