Police Smash Insurgents Camp In Anambra, Rescues 3 Hostages Including Reverend Father

Police-led Forward Operating Base (FOB), in collaboration with the military and paramilitary services based in Aguata, and with valuable support from the Police Rapid Response Squad in Awkuzu, successfully conducted a raid on an insurgents’ camp situated in Ogbunka, within the Orumba South Local Government Area, on October 6, 2023.

The operation resulted in the rescue of three abducted individuals, one of whom was a Reverend Father. Remarkably, all the rescued individuals emerged unharmed from their harrowing ordeal. In addition to this, the joint security forces successfully recovered nine vehicles that had been forcibly taken at gunpoint, and they confiscated three Pump Action Guns used by the insurgents. The operation also led to the arrest of three suspects linked to the criminal activities.

During the operation, a cache of stolen camouflage uniforms, a Biafra flag, numerous handsets, flash drives, and SIM cards were discovered. These seized items will play a pivotal role in aiding comprehensive investigations and eventual legal proceedings.

The insurgent gang targeted in this operation had been responsible for a series of abductions in Orumba North and South, as well as parts of Aguata Local Government Areas in recent times. Notably, all the victims successfully rescued were kidnapped within the current month.

The success of this raid on the insurgents’ camp can be attributed to months of painstaking intelligence gathering and investigative work, culminating in the discovery of the criminals’ hidden base.

Anambra State’s Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, who issued the orders and oversaw the operation, commended the unwavering professionalism and dedication exhibited by all service personnel and vigilant members involved. Significantly, the operation was carried out without any loss of life.
