Abuja - Troops will sustain operations against militants in the Delta State following progress made during the Operation Crocodile Smile.

The latest breakthrough is the arrest of five alleged hoodlums terrorizing commuters plying the East-West road between Ughelli to Patani.

These have been named as Oruno Egbede, Atiyoyo Rewemuesere, Peter Kehinde, Wilson Godbless and Friday Odede.

Other suspects, named as Vincent Ekeke and Henry Koko, alongside two women, Racheal Abbah and Amaratefa Odada found at the residence were invited for questioning, while efforts are ongoing to track down another wanted suspect.

The investigations come as troops carry out patrols in suspected dens of militants.

”The troops will continue to maintain vigilance, carry out raids and patrols as part of the training exercise in the general area as part of their routine activities to improve proficiency and professionalism,” Army spokesperson, Sani Kukasheka Usman said.

He said investigations were ongoing to assess the damage by pipe vandals on the Delta shoreline.
