    BREAKING: Head of IPOB/ESN group killed by police during a raid in Imo state

    Bennivibez reports that a number of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN) members were killed in a clash with the police during a raid on their camp located at Akata in Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State on Friday, August 27.

    Rabiu Hussaini, the Imo State Commissioner of Police, confirmed this to newsmen in Owerri.

    He said that credible information by the Imo Command’s intelligence unit revealed that a group suspected to be IPOB/ESN members were seen mobilizing to attack police formations and government installations from their camp located at Akata in Oru East LGA of Imo State.

    Bennievibez gathered that the Commissioner of Police, Hussaini Rabiu, immediately dispatched the command’s Special Forces and tactical teams led by the officer-in-charge of Operation Restore Peace, ACP Evans Shem, to dislodge the group as a proactive measure to nip their planned attack on the bud.

    The Police spokesman CSP Michael Abattam, who disclosed these in a statement, said on approaching the camp, the police teams were attacked by the secessionist group.

    Abattam said in the battle that ensued, the head of the IPOB/ESN group and others were neutralized.

    He said items recovered include 3 Improvised Explosives Devices (I.E.D), two Pump Action Guns, nine Cartridges, One Locally Made Pistol, and One Toyota Highlander SUV vehicle with registration number IMO DFB 535 LC.

    According to Abattam, on their way back unknown to police teams, the bandits reinforced and regrouped, using palm tree logs to block the entire exit paths in the bush.

    The police spokesman added: “It was at the fourth blockade that the police teams came under heavy attack while removing the fourth palm tree log used in blocking the exit path.

    “The bandits threw petrol bombs and Improvised Explosives Devices (I.E.Ds) at the police vehicles.”

    He said that the police teams successfully dislodged the suspected IPOB/ESN group. Several of them were neutralized and others fled into the bush with bullets injuries.

    He said: “Unfortunately, one of the police Hilux vehicles was burnt due to the petrol bombs thrown on it.”

    Abattam disclosed that three police officers sustained bullet injuries and were rushed to the hospital while one of them died on the way.

    The two other officers, according to him, were in stable condition undergoing treatment in a government hospital.
