The State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, in a statement by his Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, said that the demolition took place on Friday, June 10, after security operatives had established that the facility, an old bungalow was being used by criminals.

“In his avowed determination to rid Anambra State of criminalities, Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo’s directive that all kidnappers and other criminal gangs’ hideouts be raided and buildings harbouring them be destroyed, was effectively carried out in Oba, Idemili South local government area, on Friday, June 10, 2022,” the statement read.

“Anambra State Joint Security Task Force conducted the demolition exercise which lasted for more than five hours at the hideout of the notorious kidnappers, an old bungalow building at Oba, Idemili South Council Area.

“The hideout has earlier been raided recently, where exhibits such as locally-made pistol, shrine, charms, concoctions, Indian hemp, among other incriminating materials were recovered at the building with some arrests also made.”

The statement noted that state police command spokesman, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga had explained that his command received a distress call about the kidnap of two persons at Oko, and while on their trail, they learned that the gang had kidnapped two more persons at Ekwulobia. They were quickly pursued and tracked.

According to Ikenga, police operatives working with the vigilante stormed the location, rescued the four victims, and arrested one Emeka who was suspected of complicity.

When interrogated, he confessed to the crime and led detectives to the hideout of his gang in Oba, where a shootout ensued.

The PPRO said a gang leader, one Chinedu Ajogu, AKA Sampolo was gunned down and five other persons including their native doctor were arrested for interrogation.

Addressing reporters at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, Governor Soludo commended the efforts of the State Joint Security Task Force, saying the demolition exercise would serve as a deterrent to other criminals.
