The armed forces carried out the operations at camps belonging to “De-Well” and “De-Gbam” cultists groups in Umoubi and Umudike forests, both in Ohaji Egbema Local Government Area.

The troops recovered quite a number of military uniforms and mobile telephones and other household items before destroying the camps to prevent the cultists regrouping in the area.

“They have continued to comb the general area for other members of the kidnapping syndicate,” said Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations.
