The troops dislodged the  training camp after  exchanging fire with the dissidents, neutralizing  two notorious members of the group, who have been on the wanted list of security agencies and have been  terrorising residents in the general area of Orlu, Orsu and Njaba.

The troops equally destroyed the training shed and other facilities used by  the separatists, including a shrine, which members  of the outlawed group reportedly use for spiritual fortification. A local factory for fabricating weapons was also discovered and destroyed.
