The Joint Task Force (JTF) conducting operations in Essien Udim Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom State and its environs has arrested 10 suspects in connection with the killing of security operatives and burning of police facilities in the last few months in Akwa Ibom State.

The JTF, comprising the Nigerian Army, the Police, the Department of State Services (DSS), and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) raided Ntak Ikot Akpan and Abama communities in Ikot Ekpene and Obot Akara LGAs of the state.

The Akwa Ibom State Commissioner of Police, Andrew Amiengheme, listed AK-47 rifles, vehicles, cartridges, and cash amongst other things recovered during the operation.

In a press release on Wednesday in Uyo, the CP said, “The operations of the Joint Task Force have yielded a lot of successes with more still being done.

Following coordinated raids on the locations of criminal elements at Ntak Ikot Akpan, Abama and Ikot Akpan in Essien Udim, Obot Akara and Ikot Ekpene Local Government Areas by the Joint Task Force, a total of 10 suspects who are directly linked to the killings of security personnel and destruction of property were arrested.
