Anambra State Police Command says its operatives have raided a camp belonging to insurgents in Ogbunka community in Orumba South Local Government Area of the state.

Police Public Relations Officer, in the state, SP Tochukwu Ikenga made the disclosure in a press statement issued on Saturday in Awka, Anambra State Capital.

He said the raid was ordered following constant attacks on police facilities, using improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

“In the hunt for gunmen who attacked two Police Stations at Awgbu in Orumba North and Neni in Anaocha LGA in the last two weeks, Police-Led Joint Security Force was ordered by the Commissioner of Police CP Aderemi Adeoye to identify and destroy any camp being used by insurgents to launch attacks within the command.

“Yesterday, Friday, 29th March, 2024, the Joint Security Force raided the forests of Ogbunka in Orumba South LGA and found scattered camps of the insurgents.

The cowardly criminals fled in the face of the onslaught.

“Six Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) already primed for attacks and two Walkie-Talkies were recovered from the Camps.
