The Police said Tuesday eight of its 35 personnel missing during an attack on the Police Mobile Force training camp at Gwoza, Borno, have been found.
That leaves 27 officers still missing.
The camp was reportedly attacked by the Boko Haram insurgents.
Emmanuel Ojukwu, the Force Public Relations Officer, who confirmed this in Abuja, said the eight officers were found in the last two days.
Mr. Ojukwu expressed hope that more of the men would be found with the ongoing search and rescue efforts.
The insurgents attacked the camp on August 20, having attacked it earlier on August 7, and was repelled by the personnel.
Following the incident, the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, ordered that security be tightened in and around all police facilities across the country.
