Insurgents take over police mobile training camp in Borno
Boko Haram insurgents have taken over the Police Mobile Training camp in Limankara village, Borno State. Limankara is south of Gwoza, which has been in possession of the sect in the last two weeks. The mobile training camp is patronised by police officers and men from all parts of the country and is located in the midst of hills and valleys between Gwoza and Cameroun, according to report from National Mirror. The terrorists had invaded Gwoza two weeks ago, sacked the whole community and hoisted their black and white flags at different locations, including the emir’s palace. It was gathered that there was heavy fighting between the
insurgents and troops before the camp finally fell. An anonymous source said: “The terrorists, who coincidentally engaged troops with sophisticated weapons, succeeded in chasing away security personnel undergoing training at the camp and took over by hoisting their flags.” Contacted for confirmation, the state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Gideon Jubrin said he was not in the office throughout the day, even as he promised to verify the authenticity of the report from relevant authorities.
