Military officers raid IPOB camp inside forest, kill six over killing of Soldiers

Troops of operation UDO KA have conducted a successful raid on a camp of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) located in Igboro Forest in Abia State on Saturday, June 8.

This was revealed in a statement shared on X by the Nigerian Army on Sunday, June 9.

The the raid was reportedly conducted in order to arrest the killers of five soldiers at Obikabia junction in Aba last week.

The statement reads: “In order to apprehend the perpetrators of the attack on own troops (three out of those killed are from the SE) at Aba last week as well as to recover arms and ammunition from the Indigeneous People of Biafra and its affiliate Eastern Security Network terrorist group, troops of Operation UDO KA conducted another successful clearance/raid operations to the IPOB/ESN Camp in Igboro Forest in Arochukwu LGA of Abia State yesterday.

“During the intelligence-led operation, troops encountered Improvised Explosive Devices along the axis of advance, and one soldier sustained a minor injury from the fragment.

“The terrorists’ feeble firefight was adequately subdued with superior firepower, which led to the neutralisation of six members of the criminal terrorist group while others escaped into adjoining bushes with varying degrees of gunshot wounds as blood stains were seen along their escape routes.”

The soldiers have also reportedly recovered various weapons, including three locally fabricated rocket-propelled grenade launchers, two locally fabricated artillery guns with tripod and bombs, Dane guns, Biafran flags, and vehicles were reported to have been burnt and the camp itself was destroyed.
