Panic As Bombs Hit Gunmen’s Hideouts, FG Goes After IPOB by sarrki(m): 8:48am On Apr 07
There was panic among residents of the Essien Udim Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State on Tuesday as the military bombarded the Ikot Akpan forest in the area.

The PUNCH learnt that the military operation was aimed at flushing out hoodlums who had been attacking police formations in the state.

Residents, who share boundaries with hoodlums’ hideouts, told one of our correspondents that the bombing of the forest started at 8am and ended at 12 noon on Tuesday.

The military exercise came barely 24 hours after gunmen attacked the Imo State police command headquarters and the Nigerian Correctional Service in Owerri, the state capital, where 1,844 inmates were freed.

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Monday ordered security agencies to fully mobilise and go after gunmen that had been attacking security agencies.

It was gathered that before the military exercise in Akwa State on Tuesday, residents had been asked to steer clear of the Ikot Akpan forest suspected to be a camp of gunmen.

Residents said the operation began with the deployment of helicopters and drones for aerial surveillance and bombing before ground troops moved in to flush out criminal elements.

The Essien Udim LGA, where the Minister of Niger Delta, Senator Godswill Akpabio, hails from, has been under attacks by gunmen, who have been killing cops and destroying their facilities.

Recall that hoodlums, whom many suspected to be members of a cult group in February, this year attacked the police at the Ikpe Annang junction, where a police inspector was set ablaze inside a police van.

Also in February, they attacked Ikot Afanga community and killed an inspector of police identified as Aniekan, while a divisional police station in the LGA was set ablaze by the hoodlums. They also burnt police vehicles.

On March 31, 2021, three police officers, including a chief superintendent of police, Ben Ajide, were killed and four others declared missing in a failed reprisal carried out by the police against the hoodlums.

On Tuesday morning, residents, who had not fled the area stayed indoors as the military bombarded the hideouts of the criminals.

Fear gripped residents as fighter jets flew at low levels to ensure proper surveillance of the area.

Re: Panic As Bombs Hit Gunmen’s Hideouts, FG Goes After IPOB by saaron(m): 8:57am On Apr 07
The regime know their fulani savage barbarian tribe is finished so they want to drag Igbos with them into the abiss by sponsoring Imo prison break. For those who may not know should know this: IMO PRISON BREAK WAS AN INSIDER JOB PLANNED & EXECUTED BY BUHARI'S TERRORIST REGIME! What better way to kill a dog by given it a bad name? Do they think we Indigenous people privy to fulani satanic plans are fools? We already know their plan. We're not surprised for the wicked run when no one pursues.
Unfortunately for the fulani terrorists in power, their cup is FULL! Every devilish plot they plan to execute on Igbos and other tribes will NEVER WORK. Rather their evil plan will end up backfiring on them. Yes the terrorist in power will reap 4x of what they sowed against indigenous tribes in Niger-area.
We know exactly what this regime is up to and we Middle Belters and Southern Indigenous people are fully READY FOR THEM!

Whether late buhari's fulani terrorist regime likes it or not, Nigeria will DISINTEGRATE INTO PIECES and there's nothing they can do about it.

I’m not a part of this war. Freeing prisoners is not a good move and I know Kanu will deny it’s not his boys dat did it. It’s a Shame cos I expected better from IPOB.
But I have a burning question o... let’s say now that ESN and ipobs have been equipped with ammunition what will happen if they don’t get what they’re fighting for? Boko Haram and Fulani Herdsmen had a cause too but they weren’t met. What will happen when their freedom isn’t granted?

They do bomb bandits up North.

Here is a report from Kaduna state on the bombing of a big forest of bandits in Birnin Gwari

NAF also has been bombing Zamfara bandit camps.

As well as the usual routine attacks on Boko Haram...the Tucano fighters were even bought to help the NAF bomb boko much better.

So it isn't just on Southerners.

Nothing like panic, the state security gave over 48hrs warning and were specific in with the location they planned to bomb.
The enclave is a cult infiltrated jungle that is well known

This thing that we are looking like play play, okay o. But one thing I am sure of is that the people can only take enough ramming. If you are shocked about Nigeria's situation, you must be really dull, sorry for the insults. But I really mean it. One Nigeria is never going to work. I have seen this already.

This govt is very useless walai. So they can go this far to fish out ipob, esn, but can't do same to fish out the sponsors and perpetrators of Boko Haram, killer herdsmen, bandits etc.
Indeed this govt is for the north and by the North only
