Not less than 10 Cameroonian Gendarmes are feared dead in a fresh attack by the Biafra separatist militant group, the Black Marine, recapturing oil firms staff quarters in Atabong East area of Bakassi Peninsula.

The militants who had their faces painted with white powder, were said to have driven in two speed boats when they took the Cameroonian security operatives unawares and  fired explosives rapidly that killed the 10 Cameroonian Gendarmes and members of the Rapid d’intervention Battalions (BIR).

Recall that series of attempts have been made to invade the staff quarters after the Cameroonian Forces dislodged the Biafra separatist group from the area to takeover the quarters weeks ago.

An eye witness account said the incident took place at about noon on Tuesday, November 21and residents have fled the staff quarters to neighboring towns for safety.

In an exclusive chat with Pillar Today on this latest attack, Leader of the Biafra Nations League (BnL), Princewill Chimezie Richards said, “it is a welcome development and I commend the warriors for their bravery. No oil, no business until we get Biafra or they come for conditions”.

Meanwhile as the frequent clashes in the peninsula intensify, the BnL on November 20 issued an official statement declaring a “no flight zone’ in Bakassi Peninsula.

The statement which was issued by the Operational Coordinator, BnL, Henry Edet, said “we wish to inform all Biafrans and the international community that we have banned flight from entering our airspace within the Eastern end of the Gulf of Guinea.

“This is in agreement with our warriors to enable them defend our airspace from airline bombardments by external or enemy forces. No flight should fly through our airspace now till December 15, 2023”.
