The locations of the dislodgement, according to Nwachukwu, are at Idara Nnebo, Ihe Mbosi villages and Ukpor in Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The statement reads “In a clearance operation conducted in the early hours of Saturday 25 June 2022, troops cleared IPOB fire positions and improvised explosive devices to dislodge the criminals from their hideouts.

“During the operations, troops recovered two AK-47 rifles, three magazines with five rounds of 7.62 mm (Special) ammunition, two pump action rifles and one locally fabricated gun. Other items include three power generators, among others.

“Members of the public are enjoined to continue to support troops with credible information on the activities of the criminal elements in the region.”
