The statement said,”We had previously destroyed two such camps, one in Ogbunka, Orumba South LGA and the other in Achalla, Awka North LGA.
“Yesterday, Friday, 29th March, 2024 The Joint Security Force raided the forests of Ogbunka in Orumba South LGA and found scattered camps of the insurgents. The cowardly criminals fled in the face of the onslaught.
“Six Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) already primed for attacks  and two Walkie Talkies were recovered from the Camps.

He prays that the Peace of Christ which passeth all understanding reigns across the length and breadth of the State.  He wishes to assure Ndi Anambra that the Police Command under his watch will continue to serve the people selflessly despite the risks involved.
