Nigerian Police Force Says Sisiku And The Rest Were Arrested Because They Operated Training Camps In Nigeria


The Nigerian Police Force has said Sisiku AyukTabe and nine of his close aids were arrested in Nigeria last January 5th, 2018 because they were operating training camps in Nigeria.

Various Nigerian press organs reports that the separatists were agitating an 'Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB-styled" independent movement. They were arrested in both Taraba and Cross River States, and that these two states have boundaries with Southern Cameroons, making it easy to access Nigeria.

According to a Police source, “the government of Nigeria cannot be seen to be habouring separatists from a neighbouring Country like Cameroon when both countries are cooperating and jointly fighting to uproot Boko Haram terrorists who are insurgents trying to impose their own Islamic state in the North east

Moreover, it is common knowledge that the federal government of Nigeria recently clamped down on the illegal activities of the IPOB (Independent Peoples of Biafra). So how can the territory of Nigeria be used to train separatists to cause civil disobedience in such a friendly country.”

A security source confirmed that the arrested leaders were caught red-handed within the training camps for separatist members for future confrontation with the Cameroonian authorities. 

It was gathered that they would be moved to Force headquarters, Abuja, since the issue of training camps across borders have become an international and diplomatic issue. 


There was also indications that officials of Nigeria’s ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cameroon’s Embassy in Nigeria were already holding discussions over the arrest.
