Troops of the Nigerian Army 6 Division and other security agencies have killed seven fighters of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) backed Eastern Security Network (ESN).

The government forces raided their camp in Agbochia Forest in the boundary between Eleme and Oyigbo Local Government Areas of Rivers.

Oyigbo is a town 30 kilometres from the state capital, Port Harcourt.

The troops, led by Brig. Gen. M. D. Danja also arrested five ESN militants.

The Nigeria Police, Department of State Security Service (DSS) and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) were part of the joint operation.

An intelligence officer told PRNigeria that the troops did not record any casualty.

Items recovered include AK 47 rifles, G3 rifles, locally made machine gun, G3 magazine, rounds of ammunition and Baofeng handheld radios with chargers.

Others were NAF Tag and rank of an LCPL, GD belts, locally made helmet with ESN inscription, assorted phones, NPF face cap, boots, camouflage T-shirt, backpack and other valuable documents.

“The camp was destroyed in-situ. The suspects and corpses have been handed over to Rivers State Commissioner of Police for further investigation”, the source added.
