The Comptroller in charge of Mfum Border Command, Mr Ndubuisi Eneregbu, announced the arrest in a statement yesterday in Calabar.

According to the Comptroller, two Nigerians and one irregular Cameroonian migrant, who confessed to be a member of the Ambazonia separatist group, were arrested on a motorcycle with arms and live ammunition.

“The suspects were found with, among other things, a small bag containing incriminating items such as one Beretta pistol, one locally-made pistol, three live ammunitions, charms and one Tecno BC3 Android phone.

“They were four suspects; the fourth person, currently at large, left them with the bag containing the incriminating items.”
