Police Discover IPOB/ESN Biggest Bomb Factory In S-East

The Ebonyi State Police Command has come out to disclose that it has discovered what it described as the biggest bomb factory belonging to the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) and its militia arm, Eastern Security Network(ESN), in the southeast region.

Akelicious reports that the Ebonyi Police spokesperson Chris Anyanwu in a statement on Thursday disclosed that the discovery followed an operation that involved a gun battle with operatives of IPOB/ESN members leading to the death of two members of the group and a state commander.

Anyanwu submitted that it was in the cause of the operation that the police discovered the camps of the IPOB/ESN located at Obegu, a boundary area between Onicha-Isu and Ishielu LGAs of Ebonyi State. He said “The invasion of the criminals’ den was necessitated by an earlier encounter between operatives of the Command’s Tactical Teams, the sequel to a piece of credible information gathered that the hoodlums were operating/wreaking havoc in the State with a Toyota Sienna space bus which they robbed at gunpoint from the owner within Ishielu axis.

 “A quick trial and joint effort with a team of detectives attached to Ohaukwu Division led to the arrest of Sunday Ubah a.k.a Bongo, the State Commander of the IPOB/ESN in Ebonyi State. “The miscreant who gave revealing pieces of information about the activities and modus operandi of the criminals, initially claimed that he is their PRO and native of Umunnochi in Isuikwuato LGA, Abia State.

“However, a scrupulous investigation aided by his antecedents/profile with the Police Command proved that he is a native of Obegu, Onicha LGA of Ebonyi State and indeed the factional Commander of the outfit in Obegu.”

He also revealed that “The Police bomb expert in the Command described it as a complete Bomb Factory – the biggest in the South-East and that each of the hand grenades (first of its kind) is capable of causing colossal damage to buildings and mass killing of humans.” Items recovered include “30 pieces of IEDs using safety fuses primed in non-electric initiator/detonator, Sixty-three (63) wraps of Superpower 90mm gelatin, two (02) Solar prime 90mm gelatin, sixteen (16) Danger 90 gelatin, twenty (20) Ideal power 90 gelatin 50mm, two hundred and thirty-nine (239) pieces of plain Non-electric detonators, fourteen (14) pieces of primed nonels, ninety-nine (99) pieces of one-inch safety fuses, and One complete roll of Safety fuse.”
