An explosion rocked a Cameroonian military checkpoint in Isangele in the Bakassi Peninsula area yesterday, killing two soldiers, according to Princewill Richards, leader of the Biafra Nations League (BnL).

According to BnL, the attack was carried out by the Black Marine, a suspected armed wing of the Nigerian separatist BnL group.

Separatist fighters fought a gun battle with the Rapid d’intervention Battalion (French acronym ‘BIR’) in Archibong Town, Bakassi’s Isangele Sub-division.

According to BnL, separatist militants stormed the town on Friday evening with three speed boats, targeting the military gun boat stationed at the main borders with Nigeria at Archibong Town.

Two soldiers were killed instantly after being hit by Improvised Explosive Devices, according to the group (IEDs). According to Bnl, when the BIR returned fire, the militants fled.

Meanwhile, the group claimed that on Tuesday, the Nigeria Police and Army ransacked the Bakassi Local Council in Cross River State’s Ikang, Ekpri Ikang, and Idebe axis, which appeared to be a haunt for BnL members.

BnL Deputy Leader Ebuta Takon issued a statement cautioning against any attempt to apprehend the group’s leader, Princewill Richards, who was allegedly smuggled into the Peninsula by suspected militants.
