There are strong indications that Nigerian and Cameroonian forces yesterday warded off a gang of armed boys said to be the militant wing of Biafra Nation League, BNL, when they attempted to drop explosives into warships near Ikang Abana in the Bakassi Peninsula.
It was gathered that the militants targeted to drop explosives on the warships but were not able to advance further due to superior firepower.
Sources in the neighbourhood said the Nigerian Navy may be conducting training exercises on the waters involving the testing of some heavy guns.
Other sources stated that Cameroon may have redeployed their forces to beef up security in the Joint border security.
“We know that Cameroon may have also deployed men of the Rapid d’intervention battalion, BIR, in response to the alleged shootout between Biafra separatist militants, the Black Marine, and joint border security forces a few days ago”, the source said.
It was learnt that Cameroonian military officers seemed to have called for more reinforcement of troops in the Isangele and Idabato subdivisions in the Peninsula.
The militant group has been agitating for the sovereign state of Biafra, warning the federal government to release Nnamdi Kanu, and asking Cameroonian authorities to withdraw its men from Bakassi Peninsula.
