Bakassi Boys regroup to battle Fulani marauders

The dreaded Bakassi Boys security outfit that protected major cities in the South East of Nigeria against armed robbery have said that they are regrouping to fight marauding Fulani herdsmen in South Eastern Nigeria.

According to reports, the return of the security network became necessary in the face of external threats of extermination coming from Fulanis.

Recall that Bakassi Boys were responsible for the restoration of law and order in parts of the South-East, particularly in major business cities like Aba and Onitsha. They are dreaded for their use of charms to detect criminals.

They were disbanded by various state governments when there ranks and file were infiltrated by undesirable elements and replaced with regular vigilante groups.

More details later.
