Troops recover ‘IEDs planted on the road’ in Imo State

Published on

The Nigerian Army says troops have recovered improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on the Orlu-Owerri road in Imo state.

In a statement on Monday, Onyema Nwachukwu, army spokesman, said the soldiers also foiled an attempt by gunmen to attack two communities in the state. The army accused the Eastern Security Network of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) of planting the devices, adding that the IEDs had been safely detonated.

“In a separate development, troops have uncovered four Improvised Explosive Devices planted by members of the proscribed IPOB/ESN, in their desperate effort to inflict h*rm on unsuspecting motorists and other road users along Orlu-Owerri road.

The vigilant troops, who were on a reinforcement mission to Mgbidi/Awo Mmama detected the IEDs planted at about 15 meters apart on both sides of the road and safely defused them. No casualty was recorded during the defusion.”


The army also said “four wraps of unexploded ordnances, one motorcycle battery, two vehicle alarm devices, one detonator, wires and batteries” were recovered during the operation.
