Nigerian army capture two artillery projectile launchers from IPOB/ESN camp in Anambra

The Nigerian Army says it has recovered two locally made artillery projectile launchers from fi¥hters of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN) in Anambra State.

The Director of Army Public Relations, Onyema Nwachukwu, in a statement on Tuesday, October 17, said the w£apons were captured by the combined troops of 302 Artillery and 14 Field Engineer Regiments of the Nigerian Army.

According to him, “The artillery w£apons, armed with projectiles, were seized alongside other items as troops swooped on the dissident fi¥hters, who fled in disarray, deserting their camp upon sighting the troops’ advancement.

In the operation, one combatant of the dissident group was arrested and several items, including 48 rounds of 7.62 mm NATO ammunition, 4 mobile phones, one handheld communication radio and substance suspected to be cannabis, among others were recovered by the troops.”
