25 skulls, skeleton found by troops in militants shrines

Troops of the Joint Task Force (JTF), Operation Delta Safe (ODS) discovered 25 human skulls at four militant shrines tucked inside the creeks of Akpabuyo and Bakassi local government areas, Cross River, The Nation reports.


According to findings, the shrines, which were discovered at Ikot Ene Idam, Abakpa and Ikang creeks of the councils belonged to a notorious militant group, the Bakassi Strike Force (BSF).

The troops also found a complete human skeleton during the raid.

Confirming the development, the Deputy Coordinator, Joint Media Campaign Centre (JMCC), Lt. Com. Thomas Otuji, said the operation was conducted by ODS’ Sector 4.

He said, “During the cordon and search operations, the troops discovered 25 human skulls in various stages of decomposition, a complete human skeleton and several other human body parts.

“The shrines were destroyed as troops continue to search for the perpetrators of these heinous acts against humanity. With the clearance of these shrines, the Bakassi Strike Force has effectively been smoked out from the areas it’s used to hold sway.

“It should be noted that the senseless killing of humans for ritual purposes is sacrilegious and will not be tolerated in any form within the Joint Operation Area”.

Otuji said two suspects were arrested at Idebe Ifak Anam, Ikot Okon Edem and Abakpa in Bakassi.
