No Boko Haram threat in Eagles camp - CSO

Published by Tribune on Fri, 06 Jan 2012


CHIEF Security Officer of the Super Eagles, ASP Gideon Akinsola, has said that there is no threat to lives of the national team players and officials currently camping in Abuja.There are widespread fears that two truck- load of riot policemen were stationed in the Super Eagles camp for the home-based players undergoing screening under Stephen-Keshi-led coaching crew to ward off the awesome terror gang, Boko Haram.However, Akinsola told brilafm yesterday that such heavy security presence was uncalled around a sport contingent.''It is not a war situation,'' Akinsola said.He added that he was quoted out of context when he addressed a group of journalists on the security situation in camp.''I don't know how the rumour came about. I said that we have at the most about 14 policemen, in two pick-up vans, how does that translate into two truck loads of policemen' On each occasion after training, we ensure that at least eight policemen are maintaining security, it beats my imagination, when people now say they see two trucks loaded with policemen,'' he said.He also dispelled reports that the policemen posted to the national team's camp are poorly fed, even with some suggesting that the police detachment feed on remnants of players' food.Apartment Manager of Bolton White Hotels where the Eagles are camped,Chika Udeochu, said the hotel took the decision to feed the policemen out of its own freewill and does not want to be dragged into any unnecessary argument over the issue. 'The policemen here take lunch and dinner and on each occasion none of them has ever complained and at times they even go as far as our kitchen to get what they want, it's shocking when we hear something contrary. Please let's support the rebuilding of the national team,'she said.
