Joint security task-force has raided the hideout of insurgents in Achalla, headquarters of Awka North local government area of Anambra State.

The sting operation according to a statement by the spokesman of the command, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, was ordered by the Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye.

He said the criminal elements were taken by surprise as they fled with gunshot wounds leaving trails of blood.

The police image maker said the hoodlums had disrupted trading at Achalla market the previous Monday while enforcing illegal sit-at-home.

This however, drew the attention of the security operatives in the State which prompted the state police command to decide on giving them a taste of their own medicine in the wee hours of Monday 19th February 2024.

The hugely successful operation led to the recovery of five exotic vehicles previously snatched at gunpoint.

Also recovered were over 300 rounds of Machine Gun Ammunition and 34 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition for the Ak-47 Rifle.

All operatives from various services have returned safely to their base.

The Commissioner of Police has directed that owners of the recovered vehicles be contacted to come forward with proof of ownership and collect their vehicles.

The manhunt for the fleeing insurgents will be extended to hospitals and clinics to ensure they are brought to justice after receiving adequate treatment.
