Police Kills ESN Commander In Imo IPOB Camp Raid


Three alleged members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), including the group’s commander, were killed in a firefight yesterday in Amaifeke, Orlu LGA, Imo state, according to the police.

This was said by Rabiu Hussaini, the state’s police commissioner, in a statement released today by Michael Abattam, the state’s police spokeswoman.

According to Hussaini, cops were dispatched to the IPOB members’ camp in response to intelligence reports that the group was plotting attacks on police stations and government infrastructure.

“When the terror group’s members saw police operatives in their hideout, they opened fire. The valiant and battle-ready tactical squads retaliated quickly.

“Three hoodlums were killed in the gunfight: Chidera Nnabuhe, the Orlu Sector Commander of IPOB/ ESN a.k.a. “Dragon,” a native of Umuala Amaifeke in Orlu LGA, and two others — a.k.a. J.J and Dadawa, both residents of Ohazara in Ebonyi state.

“A native goat that had just been murdered with the blood poured into a bottle and rubbed over their bodies to protect themselves against police bullets was recovered during a search of the camp and its surroundings.”
