Italian police arrests Nigerians running a mafia organization

Italian police say they have arrested suspected members of a Nigerian mafia organization in an operation involving 200 officers of the flying squads of Turin and Ferrara.

Police report says the arrest on Wednesday, October 28 involves the Nigerian mafia organization identified as Arobaga Vikings or Norsemen Kclub International, which deals mainly on prostitution and drug trafficking.

Italian authorities revealed 31 people were arrested in Ferrara while 43 more were taken into custody in Turin, including several women who allegedly ran prostitution rackets.

50-year-old Emmanuel Okenwa popularly called ‘Boogye’, an AfroBeat DJ, and the self-styled “King of Ferrara” were among those arrested.

Bologna preliminary investigations judge, Gianluca Petragnani Gelosi said the Vikings’ ”criminal plan was to violently annihilate” other Nigerian crime outfits and take over their turf.

Interior Minister, Luciana Lamorgese said the police guard against criminal organizations and their illegal trafficking was high amid the COVID pandemic.
