Six IEDs are found after police destroy terrorists’ camps in the Anambra Forest

Some insurgent camps that were allegedly being used to target police formations in the state were destroyed by police agents.

A police spokesman said in a statement on Saturday that some of the camps had been found in the Ogbunka woodlands in the Orumba South Local Government Area, Tochukwu Ikenga.

According to him, the state commissioner of police, Aderemi Adeoye, gave the order for the joint security force led by the police to conduct the raid on Friday.

“Six improvised explosive devices already primed for attacks and two walkie-talkies” were among the items discovered from the encampment.

“The Joint Security Force stormed the woodlands of Ogbunka in Orumba South LGA yesterday, Friday, March 29, 2024, and discovered the militants’ dispersed camps. The culprits, scared of the onslaught, ran away.

Significant supplies of food and consumables were also found. After that, every camp was demolished to prevent the rebels from having a place to base their attacks.

“With a view to eliminating the terrorists, rescuing abducted victims, and recovering firearms and stolen vehicles in their possession, the raid on the forests in search of insurgents and their camps is still ongoing,” Ikenga stated.
