Nigerian Troops Raid IPOB/ESN Training Camp, Clear Bandit Hideouts

In a coordinated operation, Nigerian Army troops and a Task Force Tactical Patrol Squad raided a training camp belonging to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its armed wing, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), in Abia State early Wednesday morning.

The camp, located in the Ihechiowa community of Arochukwu Local Government Area, was successfully infiltrated and dismantled, with all training equipment and facilities destroyed. The operation targeted buildings used as hideouts for key ESN commanders, yielding significant intelligence.

According to military sources, the raid was carried out in response to heightening terrorist activities by IPOB/ESN, which have been linked to various security challenges and violence unleashed on innocent citizens and security operatives in the state.

The operation marks a critical move in the ongoing efforts to curb acts of terrorism and violence in the region. The military has been working to disrupt the activities of IPOB/ESN, which has been designated as a terrorist organization by the Nigerian government.

In a separate operation, troops of the Nigerian Army in conjunction with other security agencies have successfully cleared bandits and criminals’ hideouts around Irele, Igbobini, and Segbemi Kiribo in the general area of Ese-Odo forest in Irele Local Government Area of Ondo state.

During the clearance operations, the troops recovered one AK-47 rifle, one AK-47 rifle magazine, 5 locally fabricated single-barrel guns, and one locally made pistol. Other items recovered from the bandits include 18 rounds of 7.62mm (Special) ammunition and 24 live Cartridges.

The military has promised to continue operations to ensure the safety and security of citizens in the region. Further updates on the operation will be communicated as more information becomes available.
