The Vigilante group called the Bakassi Boys are reported to have surfaced again after been disbanded.
According to reports, the boys were seen going around in Awka in two vans, singing and warning criminals.
A source said;
“The boys came mainly for alleged cult groups which have taken over Awka town in recent time without any response from the Police. I think they were invited by traders.”
However, when contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Ikenga Tochukwu, said he was not aware of the development, according to the publication. The PPRO, however, said that the police is ready to work with any stakeholder in security.
Bakassi Boys have been known to carry out extrajudicial killings.
