Boko Haram Has Turned Police College to their Training Camp

Today, millions of Nigerians are at the mercy of Boko Haram and it is becoming clearer that our security agencies might not be equal to the task, in terms of fire power, Naijabridge.com observed.

Hope you guys remember that Boko Haram stormed and took over a Nigeria Police College recently? Well, the sad update is that the terrorists have converted the place into the base of the terrorist group and they are conducting their training there, with impunity. Oh dear, this is a big shame!

Director of Catholic Social Communications, Maiduguri Diocese of the Catholic Church, Gideon Obasogie, who made this socking revelation to Punch on Friday, said:
“I am sad, really sad to my bone marrows about this ugly development. The world must know the truth; people were captured and taken to the police training ground for serious training as combatants. It is now one of their strongest bases. The missing policemen have joined the Boko Haram instructors. The guys are multiplying in number, weaponry and geographical expansion.”

When asked how he got the knowledge of happenings in the captured police college, Obasogie revealed that he was briefed by a member of his church who was one of the policemen being held captive at the college by the group, but had managed to escape through the hills into Yola, Adamawa State.

The college is a riot police academy in Liman Kara, on the outskirts of Gwoza, a hilly town in Borno State, North-East Nigeria. It is one of only two riot police training colleges in Nigeria.

Boko Haram had on Wednesday, August 21, 2014 attacked the Police Academy, Gwoza, Borno State, and seized not less than 200 assault rifles from the riot policemen on training.

Investigations revealed the insurgents did not encounter any strong resistance from the police personnel as the riot policemen were directed to keep all their guns at the armoury of the academy before Boko Haram attacked the academy and captured the armoury.
