An explosion has killed 7 members of the Rapid d’intervention Battalions (BIR) in Abana, former headquarters of Bakassi Peninsula.
In what appears to be a suicide bombing, the militant walked to the checkpoint in Abana when the bomb exploded at 11 p.m. on Friday.
Eyewitness said two gunboats were heavily damaged and two soldiers lost their parts.
A few weeks ago, the military took over Abana, dislodging the Black Marine, a separatist militants believed to be an armed wing of the Biafra Nations League, BnL.
Simon Ekpa, leader of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile posted on his Twitter handle that Black Marine was not dislodged, refuting media reports.
