190 police officers who were being trained for the war against Boko Haram in the North East, have absconded. A statement from the force says the fleeing officers were being trained in Buni Yadi, Yobe state when they absconded.
A ‘Police Wireless Message’ sent from the Force Headquarters to MOPOLS in 22 states, says an order has been issued for the immediate arrest of the absconding officers. The policemen comprised personnel of the Police Mobile Force (PMF) and Counter Terrorism Units (CTU), as well as those of the Force and the Sniffer Dog Sections.
Curiously enough, over 98 percent of the absconding Police officers are from the South.
