The troops of Joint Task Force South-East Operation, code-named “Operation UDO KA II”, have conducted clearance operations in terrorists’ camps within Imo and Anambra States in the South-East.
The troops also arrested one suspected terrorist and recovered several items in their camps, which included: Improvised Explosive Device (IEDs) making materials, motorcycles, stored foods and other logistics items.
This is contained in a statement issued on Sunday in Enugu by Lt.-Col. Jonah Unuakhalu, acting Deputy Director of Army Public Relations, 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, for the Joint Task Force Operation UDO KA II.
Unuakhalu said that the troops of Operation UDO KA II based on intelligence continued with its clearance operations to Lilu community, Mother Valley and Orsumoghu Forest in Orsu Local Government Area of Imo and Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State.
He said that the clearance operation was conducted simultaneously in the respective locations in the two states on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2023.
“During the clearance operations, troops encountered and detonated many Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) instantly as well as various types of obstacles.
“The undeterred troops also came in contact with the terrorists who fled into the nearby bushes with gunshot wounds due to superior fire power.
“Several camps and shrines of the terrorists were destroyed,” he said.
According to him, Joint Task Force Operation UDO KA II, therefore, calls on the law abiding and good citizens of the South-East region not to relent in providing timely, credible and reliable information.
The army spokesman said that such reliable information would help in apprehending those that escaped with different degrees of injuries.
“We also wish to use this medium to urge the good people of the South-East region to ignore the deceitful tweet of the self-acclaimed Biafra leader, Simon Ekpa.
“The law-abiding residents should be rest assured that the South-East region will be free of all forms of criminality.
“Operation UDO KA II will continue combating crime and criminality in accordance with the extant rules and regulations guiding its operations,” he added.
It would be recalled that troops of Operation UDO KA II within some weeks had carried out several clearance operations in terrorist groups’ camps within the South-East with outstanding successes and recovery of incriminating deadly items.
