The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has executed precision air strikes on suspected Eastern Security Network (ESN) hideouts in Anambra and Imo states.

VerseNews reports that a statement by Air Commodore Edward Gakwet, NAF spokesman, said the operation, conducted under the banner of Operation UDO KA II, aimed to disrupt terrorist activities while safeguarding the lives of innocent citizens.

According to him, the September 26, 2023 strikes targeted two key locations: Mother Valley Orsumughu in Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra state and Aku Ihube in Okigwe Local Government Area of Imo state.

The statement partly reads; ”Acting on credible intelligence that IPOB/ESN terrorists had perfected plans to disrupt civic activities lined up in the coming days in Anambra state and other states in southeast Nigeria from their concealed bunkers/hideouts at Mother Valley Orsumughu, air strikes were authorized in conjunction with ground troops and other security agencies on the location believed to also house some of their weapons and ammunitions.

”The strikes hit the target and were deemed successful following the ball of fire, fleeing terrorists at the location, as well as feedback received.

”Air strikes were also conducted the same day, in close coordination with surface forces at IPOB/ESN hideout camps in Aku Ihube In Imo state, after a detailed analysis of intelligence on the terrorists converging for a likely rendezvous at their hideout.
