Troops Raid Unknown Gunmen's Camp In Anambra

The Nigerian military has raided a camp of unknown gunmen in Aguluezechukwu in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Naija News understands that the camp, which was raided on Saturday, belongs to gunmen who have been terrorising the Aguata/Orumba Axis of the state for some weeks.

According to reports, the unknown gunmen were behind the attacks on Aguata Local Government Headquarters and Nnewi South Local Government Headquarters in the South-East state.

It was said that the military raided the camp and arrested several unknown gunmen, adding that the troops recovered several food items, stolen vehicles and numerous charms.

The joint task force made up of the Nigerian Army and Navy also raided the camp which also housed a shrine that the criminals use to prepare charms and swear oaths of secrecy.

The Nigerian troops set fire to a bulldozer that was used to block the entrance of the camp in order to shield it from attacks.

Meanwhile, Aloy Ejimakor, special counsel to the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, on Saturday noted that the IPOB leader would be granted bail on May 18, 2022.

Ejimakor stated this while reacting to the ruling of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja that struck out eight out of the 15-count charges against Kanu on Friday.
