BNL militia Commander’s Statement On Bakassi Attack
The commander of the BNL militia under the command of Dark Lord, narrated that the BNL militia intercepted the Cameroon military who were on border patrol to inspect a former Nigerian Military barracks. He said that the soldiers fell into the hands of the militia when they trespassed into the Bakassi Peninsula territory under the control of the Biafra Nation League. The commander added that the BNL militia confronted the Cameroonian army to protect the territory for the Biafra separatists.
He noted that, however, no death was recorded in the confrontation, but two Cameroonian soldiers were disarmed by the BNL militia.
He noted that an army barracks, previously named Isaac Boro military base, formerly occupied by the Nigerian military was ceded to Cameroon during the handover of Bakassi to the Cameroonian government. The Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR) operatives were said to have fled and abandoned the barracks for years, relocated to their current base, because snakes invaded the barracks. The BNL commander said that the militia of the League is working on recapturing and taking over the military base from Cameroon.
