Nigeria police in its Anambra, south east command, in an update, says that its relentless pursuit of insurgents mostly identified as unknown gun men, has been yielding results.

In a statement from the office of the Police Public Relations Officer of the state, SP Ikenga Tochukwu, the chief spokesman in the state, reported on Friday that following recent attacks on two Police Stations in Awgbu and Neni, a Police-Led Joint Security Force has been tasked by the Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, to locate and dismantle any camps used by insurgents to launch attacks in the area.

The Police had previously destroyed two such camps in Ogbunka and Achalla. On Friday, March 29, 2024, the Joint Security Force raided the forests of Ogbunka and discovered multiple camps belonging to the insurgents.

The criminals fled upon facing the force, leaving behind six Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs, as pictured), two Walkie Talkies, as well as food and supplies.

The camps were destroyed to prevent further attacks.

The operation to locate insurgents, rescue victims, and recover weapons and stolen vehicles is ongoing.

The Commissioner of Police extends Easter greetings to the people of Anambra, urging cooperation in identifying insurgent hideouts. He promises to protect informants and pledges continued service to the community despite the risks involved.
