Making the claim was the Public Relations Officer of the Police Command,  Nnamdi Omoni who explained that raids were also carried out in eight different camps to flush out the hoodlums.

He also stated that full investigations have commenced to get those responsible for the death of the leader of the Ahoada East Legislative Assembly,  Ekele Chikeobi, and added that the allegation that policemen on that axis were conniving with the criminals was also being investigated to ensure total peace returned to the area.
