Boko Haram: 30 Policemen Still Missing – IGP Says
Following the recent attack in Gwoza, by the dreaded Boko Haram sect, there are reports that about 30 policemen are still missing, according to the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr. Suleiman Abba.
Abba made this known on Tuesday, in Abuja after a meeting President Goodluck Jonathan had with security chiefs at the Presidential Villa.
The AIG who said that one of the missing policemen
had been discovered and reported back at his base said:
“Even last week, we were able to identify that one of the missing officers in Gwoza had gone back to his base.
“So there can still be some that are in their homes, perhaps refusing for anyone to report that they are around because of the trauma they went through or they could still be among the families in some of the villagesthere.
“It still remains our hope that they are alive and that they will come back alive.
“We are still talking about 30 missing officers.”
It will be recalled that Abba had in September told journalists that 20 policemen were still missing after the attack.
The Islamist group had attacked the Nigeria Police Mobile Force, Gwoza Training camp, Borno State.
Recall recently, it was reported President Goodluck Jonathan in a bid to put an end to terrorism in the country has reportedly increased the number of troops from 15,000 to 20,000 in the North Eastern states.
