Army Destroys IPOB Camps, Shrine, Recovers Corpses in Imo

Written by Benjamin Adewumi

The Nigerian Army has destroyed four camps suspected to be hideouts for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Eastern Security Network (ESN) in Okigwe Local Government Area of Imo State.

The army also recovered fresh and old corpses from the camps, which were allegedly used to perpetuate atrocities such as cannibalism, occultic practices, and ritual killings.

The army also destroyed the shrine of a suspected terrorist who was on the wanted list of the force, Amobi Okafor also known as Temple, where alleged human sacrifices were being made.

Two IPOB/ESN members were neutralized and four others were arrested during the operation. Items recovered from the camps include different denominations of the Biafra currencies, one new power bike, four motorcycles, solar panels, POP cement, and a petroleum tanker suspected to have been hijacked from hard-working Igbo owners trying to make a living.

The army spokesperson, Jonah Uniakhalu, said that the operation was carried out in response to credible intelligence reports that the camps were being used by the IPOB/ESN to carry out their nefarious activities.

Uniakhalu vowed that the army will not relent in its efforts to rid the Eastern region of the country of terrorists, crime, and criminality.

He called on all law-abiding citizens of the South-East region to provide timely, credible, and reliable information that will lead to the end of the menace of insecurity occasioned by the activities of the IPOB/ESN in the region.
