A joint task force in Anambra State, South East Nigeria have stormed nine camps belonging to ‘unknown gunmen’ in the Anambra South Senatorial District.
The security agencies also raided shrines used by the miscreants for oath-taking and other forms of cultic initiations
A security source explained that some natives who acted as informants to the gunmen were also apprehended and are making useful statements.
Some of the areas raided by the task force included Aguluezechukwu in Aguata Local Government Area; Ebenato community in Nnewi South LGA; Ezinifite community also in Nnewi South LGA; and Ichi, in Ekwusigo LGA.
Other areas include part of Osumoghu, Lilu and some parts of Ukpor in Nnewi South and Ihiala LGAs.
The source said most native doctors had fled from their homes because some of their colleagues who were arrested had been providing names of those involved in killings and kidnappings in the state.
The Anambra Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, said it was too early to begin to count the successes in the war against terror in the state.
