The Joint Task Force (JTF) Operation PULO SHIELD in a swift reaction to the 7 August 2015 attack on the JTF troops along Nembe Community in Bayelsa State has carried out a cordon and search operation in suspected militants camps responsible for the attack, a military statement said.
“The Militant camp in Degema Local Government Area of Rivers State was destroyed by JTF troops while 6 suspects comprising of 4 male and 2 female were arrested. Large quantities of Arms and live Ammunition were also recovered from the camp.
“The arrested suspects are in custody of the JTF and are helping the Task Force in the investigation that will lead to the arrest of other fleeing suspects and their sponsors. Other items recovered from the militant camp include 3 speed boats, communication gadgets and generators,” the statement said.
The military urged the public to provide information that would lead to the arrest of the fleeing militants.
“The Task Force is in hot pursuit for other fleeing suspects and in no time will catch up with them and bring them to justice. The JTF will continue to dominate the creeks and waterways of the Niger Delta Region and will not rest until the perpetrators of this heinous act are apprehended,” the statement added.
