Enugu: Security Operatives Kill Sit-At-Home Enforcers

Troops from the 82nd Division of the Nigerian Army in Enugu and the NPF Special Forces have worked together to eliminate three offenders believed to be enforcers of the sit-at-home in Enugu.

An IPOB hideout in Ezioha Mgbowo, Awgu Local Government Area, was busted on September 18 by operatives acting on credible intelligence as they were finalizing plans to enforce the illegal sit-at-home order in the state, according to a statement released yesterday by the Police Public Relations Officer of the Enugu State Police Command, Daniel Ndukwe.

He reported that three of the criminals were killed and numerous others were injured during the gunfight that ensued once they spotted the combined force.

While an intensive manhunt is underway, the PRO reported that “among the items recovered were three pump-action guns, ten machetes, and other incriminating exhibits.”

While praising the combined team, State Police Commissioner Kanayo Uzuegbu has also assured the public that they will remain safe and secure while engaging in authorized activities within the state.

He urged people to stay law-abiding and to keep providing the Police with actionable security information and intelligence, and he reaffirmed the police and other security forces’ pledge to keep up the onslaught against unrepentant violent criminals operating under any guise.

Reverend Father M. Okide, a priest from the Catholic Diocese of Enugu, and six other tourists were reportedly abducted in the city of Enugu.

The event happened on Eke-Affa-Egede Road in the Udi Local Government Area of the State between 4:30 and 5 o’clock.

Relatives of the kidnapped Catholic priest and others have apparently been contacted by phone by the kidnappers, who are demanding N100 million in ransom.

Before police officers arrived to rescue them, the kidnappers reportedly left the victims’ children weeping inside the car.
