Police college still under Boko Haram occupation


The Police Training School in Gwoza, Borno State,

is still under the occupation of the Boko Haram

sect, weeks after it was attacked and overrun by

members of the violent group.

Findings indicated that about 27 riot policemen

were yet to be found out of the 100 personnel

that were receiving training at the school when

the insurgents struck the place on August 20,


However, there is anxiety in the Force over the

safety of the missing policemen, some of whom

are suspected to have been injured or killed by

the rampaging sect members.

Some policemen, who spoke on conditions of

anonymity, believed that some of the affected

personnel might not make it back to their

squadron in view of the spread of the activities of

the insurgents in Gwoza.

The Police High Command, however, said an

operation to liberate the facility is underway,

adding that a census of the policemen would be

taken after the operation.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel

Ojukwu, told our correspondent in Abuja on

Thursday that an operation to dislodge the Boko

Haram members is ongoing, adding that the

situation at the school would be clear after the

insurgents might have been cleared.

He said, “We are yet to find other policemen that

were in the school, but a census of all the men is

being taken and an operation to clear the

terrorists is ongoing. We will brief the press after

the school might have been cleared of terrorists
