Some Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have committed a major error while attempting to set up an Improvised Explosive Device, IED.
The error also involved IPOB’s other wing – the Eastern Security Network, ESN – as it was reported that the IED strategically placed to cause mayhem in the state, suddenly exploded and critically injured several members of the group.
According to the Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, he explained that the exploded IED dealth severe injuries to two members of the outlawed group.
In a statement signed by Nwachukwu, on Thursday in Enugu State, he stated that the incident occurred along Eke Ututu – Orsu Road in Orsu Local Government Area of Imo on June 1.
The statement read in part: “The dissidents inadvertently stepped on the IED which they had earlier planted along several routes in Orlu, Orsu Local Government Area, while they were attempting to evade troops’ onslaught against terrorists in the area.
“The outlawed group has severally planted IEDs along troops’ patrol routes in a failed effort to bring harm to the troops.”
