“In response to a distress call received at 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, October 31, 2021, the forces responded quickly to the scene, causing the assailants to flee, abandoning their purpose.” The Bishop, his Secretary, and his Assistant Secretary are unhurt.

“Troops will continue to deny freedom of action to members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra/Eastern Security Network (IPOB/ESN) and other criminal gangs operating within the sector especially as the elections in Anambra State draws nearer and during the yuletide season.”

“Members of the public are advised to report suspicious movement of criminals as well as hide outs of the outlawed IPOB/ESN to law enforcement agencies as the group is only out to intimidate, steal and kidnap law-abiding citizens for ransom.”
