6 People K!lled As Troops Raid IPOB Camp In Abia Over D£ath Of Soldiers

A camp housing the Indigenous People of Biafra, situated in Igboro Forest, Abia State, was raided on Saturday by Nigerian Army troops under Operation UDO KA.

The NA said in a statement on X.com on Sunday that the purpose of the raid was to apprehend those responsible for the deaths of five soldiers at Obikabia crossroads in Aba last week.

The statement read, “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.”

The statement said that six IPOB members were killed as the forces engaged in a shootout to suppress the gang during the operation, adding that “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.”

It was also stated that the soldiers had found armaments, including explosives, two locally made tripod-mounted artillery pieces, and three locally manufactured rocket-propelled grenade launchers.

In addition, reports stated that the camp itself had been demolished, along with recovered Dane weapons, Biafran flags, and automobiles.
