Nigerian Army Neutralise IPOB Commander, Recover Arms In Imo


The Nigerian Army, on Tuesday, said its operatives neutralised the commander of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) security outfit, Eastern Security Network (ESN) in Imo State.

This, according to the Military, occurred during a special clearance operation carried out across Udda, Ihiteukwa, and Orsumoghu Local Government Areas, along the borders of Orsu and Ihiala LGAs of Imo and Anambra states in collaboration with personnel from the Nigeria Police, the Department of State Services (DSS), and the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

According to the report, the force attacked the members of the IPOB/ESN, who had been utilising the region as a shelter to perpetuate its criminal activities

“On sighting troops the insurgents employed guerrilla tactics, lobbing improvised explosive devices (IEDs) from concealed positions and riddling the roads with booby traps.

“Despite the terrorists’ guerrilla tactics, troops maintained their resolve and countered the attacks with tactical precision, employing superior firepower to neutralize notorious IPOB/ESN Ihiteukwa terrorist camp Commander known as Tochukwu, alias Ojoto and two others,” the statement said.
