There was wild jubilation on Monday at Omoku town in Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Local Government area of Rivers state over Army invasion of a dreaded spot.

This is as Nigerian Army confirmed that it uncovered a notorious kidnappers’ shrine.

Colonel Aminu Iliyasu, Director Army Public Relations, in a statement on Tuesday, said in the early hours of Monday, troops of 6 Division, as part of their continued efforts to rid the Niger Delta of criminals and acts of criminality acted on a tip-off by some patriotic citizens.

It said the soldiers raided the camp and shrines of a notorious militant, cultist, kidnapper and ardent illegal oil bunkerer, Igwedibia Johnson (aka Don Waney), who has been terrorising the Omoku community in particular, as well as the entire people of Rivers and Bayelsa States.

The spokesman noted that after about an hour of gun fight, troops overpowered the criminal elements, although some scampered in disarray and escaped with gunshot wounds through River Orashe in Omoku.

He said the main kingpin, ‘Don Waney’ was not at the location but troops arrested 7 others, including 2 ladies.

Iliyasu also revealed shocking discoveries made at the scene.

“10 human skulls, various human bones, 2 AK-47 Rifles, 1 General Purpose Machine Gun (GPMG), 18 AK-47 Rifle Magazines, 4 pairs of military camouflage, 5 camouflage T-Shirts, 3 Fabrique Nationale (FN) Rifle Rifle magazines, 39 rounds of 7.62mm (NATO) ammunition, 20 rounds of 9mm ammunition and 1 round of 7.62mm (Special) ammunition”.

“Others are 2 bags weighing about 25kg containing substances believed to be Cannabis (Marijuana), 3 ICOM Hand-held Radios and 2 MAG ONE Hand-held Radios”, he listed.

Iliyasu thanked the people of Omoku, Rivers State, for the timely information, understanding and also wish to solicit for their continued support in our determined effort to rid our area of responsibility of militants, illegal oil bunkerers and kidnappers.
