The Anambra State Police Command reported that a Joint Security Force, in pursuit of gunmen and criminals targeting security installations in the state, discovered nine Improvised Explosive Devices and four Walkie Talkies in a forest within the Ogbaru Local Government Area.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Tochukwu Ikenga, who made this known in a statement issued on Wednesday said that locations around Amiyi and Ochuche areas of the local government were combed in search of the insurgents.

According to Ikenga, troops of the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Navy lent considerable firepower to the operation which he said completely routed the hoodlums from their hideouts in the forest.

“Several camps were found and destroyed during the operation which lasted several hours.

“Nine Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) recovered from the camps were safely defused by the Police Bomb Squad.

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, commended the military for its steadfastness in supporting the fight against criminality.

“He also thanked the DSS, NSCDC, NDLEA, NIS and various Vigilante Groups across the State for the wonderful synergy that is yielding fantastic results in keeping Anambra State safe."

“The Commissioner of Police also warned cultists running amok in the state capital to be aware that their days are numbered. He warned that security will not fold its hands and watch them destabilise the state in the name of cult rivalry leading to fatalities,”
the police spokesperson said.
