He stated that the three remaining gang members were shot and managed to flee, but the police officers who had been dispatched to the scene apprehended and disarmed the gang members.

According to what he said, “The operatives detained a group of four armed men operating on motorbikes and demobilized one of the miscreants, while the other three fled the scene with bullet injuries, on May 29, 2024, at 2:00 pm, after gathering intelligence. Anambra

A locally manufactured Barreta handgun, four enlarged cartridges, two phones, and various signals or initials indicating disloyalty to the Nigerian government were found by the operatives.

According to preliminary reports, the armed men were gathering to carry out tomorrow, May 30, 2024,’s illegal sit-at-home. The three armed individuals who fled the scene are being pursued by the operatives in the meantime.

The command, meanwhile, has issued a warning to everyone not to spread dangerous sit-at-home content because it may lead to a breach of peace.

The military responded through a spokeswoman that it is fully aware of these secessionist efforts and that law-abiding individuals should ignore such propaganda.

In observance of Biafra Heroes Day, which honors those who lost their lives in the Civil War, the Indigenous People of Biafra have ordered a sit-at-home policy for today, May 30.
