Army Arrests Seven After Raid On Militant’s Camp In Rivers
The Nigerian Army has announced the arrest of five men and two women after it raided a militant camp in Omoko, Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Local Government Area of Rivers State.
Spokesman of the 6 Division in Port Harcourt, capital of Rivers state, Colonel Aminu Iliyasu, told newsmen, yesterday, that they also recovered cache of arms and seven decomposed human skulls.
The raid, according to him, the raid was part of renewed strategy by the division to restore law and order in Omoku, which has been terrorised by criminals for long.
On Monday, we received a tip-off and thereafter, troops raided the camp and shrines of a notorious militant, cultist, kidnapper and an ardent oil thief popularly known as Don Wanny. After about an hour of gun fight, our troops overpowered the criminal elements due to superior fire power that sent the criminals scampering for safety,” he said.
Iliyasu however mentioned that the main culprit, Don Wanny was not at the location during the encounter but efforts are on to track, arrest and bring him to justice.
