Military Breakthrough As Troops Arrest IPOB/ESN Perpetrators Behind Killing of Soldiers in Abia Raid

Troops operating in the southeast region of Nigeria have achieved a significant breakthrough by arresting the perpetrators responsible for the deaths of five soldiers in Abia State.

This operation was carried out during a raid on hideouts belonging to the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra/Eastern Security Network (IPOB/ESN) fighters in Abia State.

The Director of Defence Media Operations, Maj-Gen Edward Buba, made the announcement during a press briefing on Thursday, June 13.

The incident leading to the soldiers’ deaths occurred when some gunmen attacked and killed five soldiers in Aba on 30 May.

These gunmen were reportedly enforcing a sit-at-home order issued by IPOB in commemoration of the annual Biafra Day celebration.

In response to these attacks, intelligence-based operations were conducted, resulting in the discovery and elimination of several IPOB/ESN camps across the South East region, including the Igboro forest in Arochukwu, known for sheltering IPOB/ESN fighters.

Maj-Gen Edward Buba emphasized that the arrested IPOB fighters have been providing valuable assistance in locating other camps and individuals linked to the outlawed group.
