The Nigerian Army has stated a joint group of government security operatives have neutralized 11 members of the Native People of Biafra/Eastern Security Network (IPOB/ESN) throughout a failed assault on a police station in Imo State.
The manager, military general public relations, Brig. Gen. Mohammed Yerima stated that the group flew Orlu city in seven vehicles using the intention to assault the compound housing the Area Control and Police Station at Orlu LGA of Imo State.
He said that the Turks were resisted by corrupt authorities employees in the region Control and so were totally obliterated when a psychologist group of the Nigerian Army and Nigerian Air Force came to the scene.
The manager said the assailants who were on the radar of the Joint Technical Intelligence Team were believed to have come to a Forest Camp at Ideato North LGA of Imo State from where they mobilised and proposed the failed assault. He announced that there were no casualties on the face of the safety forces.
He advocated law-abiding citizens in the region be on the watch for odd men with gunshot injuries and report the same to the closest security service for the security of the communities. He restated the commitment of the Nigerian Army into a united Nigeria that’s secure for law-abiding citizens. He urged that the public encourage the safety forces with timely and useful information which will help remove the safety dangers in their own communities.
