During an operation in Achalla, Awka North Local Government Area of Anambra State, police murdered over ten hoodlums, destroyed three criminal training camps, and recovered vehicles and firearms.

DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, the state police command’s spokesperson, revealed this on Saturday, stating the attack occurred on Friday.

The police, on the other hand, reinforced and dislodged the criminals, resulting in the deaths of over ten of them, while many others fled with bullet wounds.

“During the operation, police recovered a human skull, one locally made rocket propelled grande RPG launcher, two (RPG) bombs, one single-barrel long gun, empty chain of bullet.

“Other recovered items include; one Toyota Sienna, one Mercedes Benz 4matic jeep, two cylinders, a huge quantity of hard drugs and other items, including a police beret and a police belt.”

“The vehicle was earlier snatched at gunpoint on 9/7/2022 in Oye-Agu Abagana. Four of the police operatives escaped the ambush, while two of the police operatives and the car tracker were captured by the criminals.”

“The recovery came following a counter-offensive operation initiated against criminal elements who had on 15/7/2022 prepared an ambush against a 6-man police squad and a civilian car tracker who were on a recovery operation of a Toyota Sienna Space Wagon,” Ikenga said in a press statement.
