The Nigerian Air Force conducted airstrikes on facilities where members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and their paramilitary wing, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), were stationed.
These locations were identified as Mother Valley Orsumughu in the Nnewi South Local Government Area (LGA) of Anambra State and Aku Ihube in the Okigwe LGA of Imo State.
The operation was carried out in response to intelligence regarding the planned disruption of civic activities in the South-East by these groups.
The success of the operation was achieved through collaboration with ground troops and other security agencies, with a focus on sites believed to store arms and ammunition used by the militants.
“The strikes hit the target and were deemed successful following the ball of fire, fleeing terrorists at the location as well as feedback received,” the statement read.
“Efforts by the NAF and other security agencies at ensuring all Nigerians, irrespective of where they reside, are safe and free to conduct their activities without fear or being threatened will continue.
“While the determination of the security agencies is unwavering, the support of all Nigerians to the security agencies remains critical to defeating these criminal elements whose only intent is to sow fear and division among the citizenry,” the statement read.
