Nigerian Army Kill Notorious Kidnappers, Destroy Their Camp

The Nigerian Army said it killed two suspected kidnappers during a raid on their camps in Umoubi and Umudike forests, in Ohaji Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State.

The army, in a statement issued today by its spokesperson, Sani Usman, said the camps in the forests belonged to two cult groups – De-Well and De-Gbam.

One of those killed during the Thursday raid was identified as Chigozie aka “Chi boy”, said to be a notorious kingpin of one of the cult groups.

The body of another suspected cult member was later discovered in the forest, the military said, adding that a number of other cult members may have escaped with gunshot wounds.

Military uniforms, mobile telephones, and other household items were all recovered before the army destroyed the camp.
