Troops of the Nigerian Army deployed for counter terrorism operations in Ebonyi State in a swift and decisive response have repelled an attack on Isheke Police Station which came under attack by suspected proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)/Eastern Security Network (ESN) terrorists resulting in the torching of the facility and several vehicles.

According to the force Facebook report , Troops, on arrival at the scene, launched a counter-attack on the terrorists overpowering and compelling them to flee in disarray.

Accordingly, troops engaged the terrorists in a hot pursuit, leading to an intense gun battle, which resulted in the elimination of five suspected terrorists and seizure of several weapons.

The troops recovered one PKT Machine Gun with a link belt containing 94 rounds of ammunition, 2 AK-47 rifles with 3 magazines, containing 11 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, one Sub Machine Gun with a magazine, and a Sienna SUV with registration number Ebonyi CHR-364JC.

The Nigerian Army will continue to operate in synergy with sister services and other security agencies to combat the terrorists’ activities by IPOB and its armed affiliate, the ESN. We urge all law-abiding citizens to be vigilant and report any suspicious movement or activity to the security agencies.
