On Thursday, January 13, suspected Boko Haram terrorists stormed the police mobile training school in the Limankara Gwoza local government area of Borno State, abducting an unknown number of mobile police officers.
Senator Ali Ndume, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Army, hails from Gwoza town, which is twenty-five kilometers from the training center. It is a border town between Adamawa State’s Borno and Madagali LGAs.
On Thursday night, the insurgents allegedly attacked the training school with gun trucks and fired sporadically into the air before abducting the mobile police instructors.
The incident comes seven days after terrorists attempted to penetrate a Nigerian Army base in Gwoza, but were thwarted by troops of the Nigerian Army.
Borno state has been the hotbed of Boko Haram activities in the country.
