Abuja (Sundiata Post) – After a gun battle at Amaifeke-Akkatta Road in Orlu LGA of Imo state, fire arms and ammunition were recovered during troops’ operations to clear separatists’ hideouts in the general area.
This was contained in a statement released via the official Twitter handle of the Nigerian Army.
The Nigerian Army in the series of tweets said that the troops uncovered the weapons concealed in a black Toyota Camry, after they successfully surmounted ambushes staged by members of the outlawed dissident group, who, having been overpowered by the gallant troops, abandoned their vehicle and weapons in the heat of the combat and fled.
The Nigerian Army urges all to continue to provide timely and credible information in support of ongoing operations to restore peace and security in the South East and other troubled parts of the country.
