Imo State: Troops foil kidnap of Catholic Bishop

Nigerian Troops conducting exercise Golden Dawn Sector 3 have foiled an attempted kidnap and robbery of Catholic Bishop, Augustine  Ukwuoma at the Orlu Diocesan Secretariat in Imo State.

The troops in response to a distress call at about 2:30 am on Sunday 31 October 2021, swiftly moved to the scene forcing the assailants to take to their heels thereby abandoning their mission.

In a statement by the Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu said the Bishop, his Secretary and Assistant Secretary are safe and unhurt.

“The troops will continue to deny freedom of action to members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra/Eastern Security Network (IPOB/ESN) and other criminal gangs operating within the sector especially as the elections in Anambra State draws nearer and during the yuletide season.

The Army advised members of the public to report any suspicious movement of criminals as well as hide outs of the outlawed IPOB/ESN to law enforcement agencies as the group is only out to intimidate, steal and kidnap law-abiding citizens for ransom.
