Troops launch attacks on militants’ base in Ogun

29 July 2016, 15:20

The Nigerian army caused panic in the Arepo area of Ogun state and some part of Lagos state as soldiers bombarded the base of suspected Niger Delta militants in the state, Nation reports.

But the military head of operation reportedly assured that there was no cause for alarm and that lives and properties would be protected.

It was learnt that military fighter Jets clamped down on militants at their base on the creeks yesterday evening, the fear of which made residents to make phone calls to their loved ones.

“The operation won’t extend to the upland”, the head of the military operations was reported to have said.

Troops have been deployed to man the waterways in Arepo, where vandals had damaged pipeline facilities to scoop petrol.

News24 reported that many people were killed when suspected Niger Delta militants attacked the Igando area of Lagos state.

The militants were said to have stormed the area early Tuesday morning, breaking into houses and destroying property.

The combined team of security agencies which include the police and army confronted the militants.

The shootout, which left three policemen injured, caused residents of Igando, especially those around Ikejobi Avenue, Ewedogbon Bus Stop to flee their homes or hide indoors.
