The Ebonyi State Police Command said it has recovered some Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) following the discovery of what it described as the biggest bomb factory in the South-East belonging to the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The police said the recovered IEDs are capable of causing colossal damage to buildings and eradicating any living thing around the area.
The IPOB camp is located at Obegu, a boundary area between the Onicha-Isu and Ishielu Local Government Areas of the state.
Briefing journalists at the command headquarters in Abakaliki on Thursday, the police spokesman, SP Chris Anyanwu, said officers and men from the tactical teams, stormed the camp sequel to credible information gathered that hoodlums were operating and wreaking havoc in the state within Ishielu axis.
Anyanwu said a joint effort with a team of detectives attached to Ohaukwu Division led to the arrest of Sunday Ubah a.k.a Bongo, the commander of the IPOB/ESN in Ebonyi State.
This clamp down on those the police described as hoodlums also came with a price as some police operatives sustained minor bullet injuries while two of the hoodlums were neutralized, as others escaped with various degrees of bullet injuries.
