In a decisive blow to insurgency, troops of the Joint Taskforce Operation UDO KA have successfully neutralized six suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra and its affiliate, the Eastern Security Network (IPOB/ESN), in a clearance operation conducted in Igboro forest, Arochukwu Local Government Area of Abia State.

According to a statement released by the Taskforce spokesman, Lt.-Col. Jonah Unuakhalu, the operation was meticulously planned to apprehend those responsible for the attack on troops in Aba on May 30 and to recover arms and ammunition from the terrorist group.

The successful raid, conducted on June 8, encountered resistance from the insurgents, who deployed Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) along the axis of advance. Despite this, the troops, armed with superior firepower, effectively subdued the terrorists' feeble firefight, resulting in the neutralization of six suspects.

Among the items recovered from the scene were three locally fabricated Rocket Propelled Grenade Launchers, two locally fabricated Artillery Guns with tripod and its bombs, dane guns, Biafran flags, and burnt vehicles, including Toyota Tundra and Hilux.

In addition to the elimination of the insurgents, the Taskforce destroyed all their camps, adorned with various inscriptions, signaling a significant setback for the terrorist group in the region.

Lt.-Col. Unuakhalu emphasized the importance of continued cooperation between the security agencies and the people of Abia State, urging residents to provide credible and timely information to facilitate the eradication of criminal elements in the state and the entire South-East region.

He urged individuals with relevant information to contact Operation UDO KA via the designated hotline, 193, and press option 2 on their phones, reaffirming the Taskforce's commitment to ensuring the safety and security of the populace.
