On Saturday, Nigerian Army soldiers raided camps in the states of Anambra and Enugu that they said belonged to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its auxiliary, the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, the director of army public relations, revealed this in a statement on Sunday.

He said that members of the Nigerian Navy, Department of State Services, and Nigeria Police Force participated in the searches.

In the Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State, Nwachukw said, troops from the 302 Regiment drove the members of IPOB from the communities of Idara Nnebo, Ihe Mbosi, and Ukpor.

Two AK-47 weapons, three magazines with five rounds of 7.62 mm (Special) ammunition, two pump action rifles, and one locally made gun were among the items found by the troops during the operations.

“In the same vein, troops of 103 Battalion conducted a raid on IPOB/ ESN camp at Nkwere Inyi Forest in Oji River Local Government of Enugu State.

“The encounter forced the criminals to flee in disarray, while troops recovered one Lexus and a Toyota Highlander SUV suspected to have been snatched by the criminals.

“Other items recovered include two motorcycles, one double barrel gun and seven live cartridges.

“Members of the public are enjoined to continue to support troops with credible information on the activities of the criminal elements in the region.”
