Joint troops of 82 Division of the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Police have neutralised three combatants of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its armed affiliate, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), in a fierce encounter.

Brig Gen Onyema Nwachukwu, Director Army Public Relations, said in a statement on Monday that the fierce encounter ensued during a clearance operation in the early hours of Monday, September 18, 2023, at Igboro Forest, between Arochukwu and Ohafia local government areas of Abia State.

He said the troops destroyed several hideous camps used by members of the groups to perpetrate heinous crimes and train the new members.
