RAID ON AND DESTRUCTION OF INSURGENT CAMPS IN ANAMBRA STATE

In the hunt for gunmen who attacked two Police Stations at Awgbu in Orumba North and Neni in Anaocha LGA in the last two weeks, Police-Led Joint Security Force was ordered by the Commissioner of Police CP Aderemi Adeoye to identify and destroy any camp being used by insurgents to launch attacks within the Command.

We had previously destroyed two such camps, one in Ogbunka, Orumba South LGA and the other in Achalla, Awka North LGA.

Yesterday, Friday, 29th March, 2024 The Joint Security Force raided the forests of Ogbunka in Orumba South LGA and found scattered camps of the insurgents. The cowardly criminals fled in the face of the onslaught.

Six Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) already primed for attacks  and two Walkie Talkies were recovered from the Camps.

Also recovered were substantial  food and groceries supply. All the camps were subsequently destroyed to deny the insurgents bases for launching attacks.

The raid on the forests in search of insurgents and their camps is still ongoing with a view to eliminating  the terrorists; rescuing abducted victims; recovering firearms and stolen vehicles in their possession.

Meanwhile the Commissioner of Police sends warm greetings to Ndi Anambra at Easter. He prays that the Peace of Christ which passeth all understanding reigns across the length and breadth of the State.  He wishes to assure Ndi Anambra that the Police Command under his watch will continue to serve the people selflessly despite the risks involved. He urged all citizens to cooperate with the Police in identifying hideouts of insurgents seeking to destabilize the State and truncating development. He assured that the Police will jealously protect the sources of its information to protect informers from harm.
