However, the spokesman of the state police command, Okon Edet, declined comment on the incident.

He said: “You very well know that any issue outside the metropolis is under the control of the military. The entire state is still under a state of emergency.”

Over 200 students were abducted by Boko Haram fighters from their college in the community in April 2014.
