Dragon Fighter Marine, one of the militia groups of the Biafra separatist agitators operating in the border communities of the Bakassi Peninsula in the Gulf of Guinea, at the weekend detonated a bomb at the military base of the Cameroonian Gendarmes, killing six Gendarmes and compelling four others to disarm and surrender.
The militia group, Dragon Fighter Marine, an affiliate of the Biafra Nations League (BnL), were said to have rode on motorbikes in numbers, dropping two explosives at the entrance of the Cameroonian military base at the weekend. Six Cameroon Gendarmes were said to be killed, while four Gendarmes were said to be compelled at gunpoint to surrender after being disarmed.

The six Gendarmes were said to be killed in the bomb explosion at the entrance of Cameroon Gendarmes base in Isangele subdivision of Bakassi Peninsula, the former Nigerian territory ceded to Cameroon and under the surveillance of the Cameroonian military.
Another military wing of the Biafra Nations League, the Black Marine, was reported to have last week killed some Cameroonian soldiers in a attack on speedboat.
The Cameroonian soldiers were later gathered to have embarked on search operations for the militia.
Also, the Operational Coordinator of the Biafra Nations League (BnL), Henry Edet, had a fortnight ago issued ban on international business activities in the Gulf of Guinea, extending to the Peninsula and the surrounding waterways, declaring that the group will block the Idabato high sea if the foreigners, including oil companies, have an agreement with the Biafran agitators.
Edet had cautioned both the military of the Nigerian and Cameroonian governments to vacate the Bakassi, further warning that that the group would not tolerate presence of foreign armed forces in the territory.
The militia have been holding sway in the waterways of the border communities between Nigeria and Cameroon in the Bakassi Peninsula into the Gulf of Guinea in the agitation for Biafra nation state.
