He said the strikes were aimed at dislocating the activities of the IPOB/ESN terrorists and denying them the liberty to carry out their destructive acts and killing sprees on innocent and law-abiding Nigerians.

Acting on credible intelligence that IPOB/ESN terrorists had perfected plans to disrupt civic activities lined up in the coming days in Anambra State and other States in Southeast Nigeria from their concealed bunkers/hideouts at Mother Valley Orsumughu, air strikes were authorized in conjunction with ground troops and other security agencies on the location believed to also house some of their weapons and ammunitions,” he said
