Nigerian army strikes blow against IPOB/ESN in Imo state



Operation UDO KA: Nigerian army deals blow to IPOB/ESN in Imo state raid

The Joint Task Force Operation UDO KA has conducted a successful raid on the notorious Monday Oluchi Ogu Camp, also known as B44 Camp, in Imo State, as part of efforts to eliminate criminal activities attributed to IPOB/ESN in the South East region of Nigeria.

Initiated on Thursday, March 28, 2024, the operation aimed at clearing the known hideout of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its armed affiliate, the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

Situated at the border of Njaba River, the camp was a hub of insurgent activity, bordering Awo-Omama Community in Oru East Local Government Area and Ezoiha community in Mbaitoli LGA of Imo State.


During the clearance operation, troops engaged with the criminals, resulting in the dispersal of the terrorists who fled into nearby bushes with gunshot wounds.

Furthermore, troops encountered and safely detonated several planted Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) intended to impede their movements.

Tragically, innocent individuals reported as kidnapped were discovered to have been brutally murdered and buried in shallow graves within the camp premises.

In line with Nigerian Army Civil Military Cooperation Relations, forensic analysis will be conducted on exhumed corpses to facilitate a dignified burial.

Various items were recovered during the operation, including explosives, weaponry, communication devices, personal effects, and stolen property such as vehicles’ plate numbers.

Maj Gen HT DADA, the Force Commander of Joint Task Force Operation UDO KA, reassures citizens of the Nigerian Army’s unwavering commitment to peace and stability in the region.
