According to a statement that was released by the Army spokesperson, Brig. Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, he made it known that troops of Sector 5 of Exercise Golden Dawn deployed in Anambra State have neutralised three unknown gunmen who recently attacked a police checkpoint along Okija-Onitsha Expressway.
Speaking further, the Army spokesperson stated that the gallant troops engaged and overwhelmed the unknown gunmen with superior firepower, forcing the unknown gunmen to flee the scene.
Speaking further, he revealed that the they recovered one vehicle and two motorcycles from them, while conducting further exploitation of the general areas for the fleeing terrorists. He further stated that a police officer was killed during the gun battle.
I think this is really a good and a cheering news. We really need to encourage the operatives of the Nigerian army so that they will be able to deal with these killers and terrorists who have continued to kill and terrorise the people of the south east region.
