FGNIndications have emerged that the Federal Government may set up two forward operational bases in Bakassi Local Government Area of Cross River State to check cases of alleged incessant killings, maiming and destruction of properties of Nigerians by the Cameroonian Gendarmes.

Commander of the 13th Brigade of the Nigerian Army in Calabar, Brig.-Gen. Okwudili Azinta, who gave the indication on Tuesday when he paid a courtesy call on the state secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, said the two operation bases would be located in Dayspring 1 and Ikang.

Information Nigeria reports that at least five Bakassi natives who resisted forcible eviction from Efut Obot Ikot, a settlement in the ceded peninsula, were allegedly killed on March 7 by Cameroonian military authorities, while 1, 800 displaced persons are currently being camped at Akwa Ikot Edem Primary School in Akpabuyo LGA.

Azinta, however, said from indications, the Navy would establish their base at Dayspring 1 while the Army would have theirs at Ikang.

The Commander noted that the establishment of these bases would enable the Armed Forces to have easy and quick access to Nigerians still living in areas close to Cameroon and also protect the people from harassment by the Gendarmes.
