A joint security taskforce in Anambra State has extended its manhunt against criminals attacking security formations in the State to Ogbaru forest.

The spokesman of the command in the State, SP Tochukwu Ikenga in a statement said on Friday, 5th April 2024 locations around Amiyi and Ochuche were combed for the insurgents.

Ikenga said troops of the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Navy lent considerable firepower to the operation which completely eliminated the criminal elements from their hideouts in the forest.

According to the police image maker, several camps were found and destroyed during the operation which lasted several hours.

He said nine Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) recovered from the camps were safely defused by Police Bomb Squad.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye commended the Military for its steadfastness in supporting the fight against criminality.
