Multiple explosions have rocked Atabong East Gendarmerie station in Idabato subdivision of Bakassi Peninsula leaving 13 persons dead.

The explosion according to sources must have killed 12 Cameroonian Gendarmes and one civilian.

As a result of the twin bomb attack on Saturday, November 18, more than 15 prisoners were said to have escaped from detention in the area.

Reports said that the attackers drove on a bike and fired into the station with heavy firearms hitting the divisional officer’s office as they shot sporadically killing cell guards, and a POS attendant was reportedly hit by stray bullets.

So far no group has claimed responsibility for the attack but fingers are pointing at the Black Marine, a group in support of Biafra liberation that has been terrorising the Bakassi Peninsula for quite sometime now.

Commenting on the attack, the Leader of the Biafra Nations League (BnL), Mr. Princewill Chimezie Richards said he was not aware of the group that carried out the attack but “I think the purpose was to free dozens of our people illegally detained in the region few days ago during mass arrest”.
