Army raids IPOB/ESN hideout in Mgbowo, Enugu State, arrest two ring leaders

  • Denies “indiscriminate firing or unprovoked burning of houses during the raid,” says its IPOB/ESN propaganda

The Nigerian Army on Tuesday said troops of Joint Security Team have raided a suspected Indigeneous People of Biafra/Eastern Security Network (IPOB/ESN) hideout located in Mgbowo, Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Major Abubakar Abdullahi, Acting Deputy Director Public Relations, 82 Division Nigerian Army, said in a statement the night operation was carried out on November 1, 2021 and that two ring leaders of IPOB/ ESN were arrested.

The Army statement said the suspects are currently undergoing interrogation with a security agency.

The statement “noted that contrary to IPOB/ESN propaganda video, there was no incident of indiscriminate firing or unprovoked burning of houses during the raid. The joint operation in Agwu was conducted in the night and there was no destruction of any private property involved.

“The trending videos in circulation claiming to represent the aftermath of the night operation is not portraying the Agwu operation. It is meant to whip up sentiment and incite the public against the Army.

“Meanwhile, Investigation into the video is ongoing to ascertain when and where it was shot and those involved. Any personnel found culpable would be sanctioned accordingly. Updates will be communicated when investigation is completed.

“Members of the public are advised to disregard such propaganda materials intended to mislead the public. We shall continue to support other security agencies in line with our constitutional mandate in a professional manner. Any act of unprofessional conduct among our troops will not be tolerated.”
