He said, “Since the attack at Uga, the gang has been under close surveillance. But what held the police back was to avoid unintended casualties, as this is the season of merrymaking.

“The police struck immediately, and the gang was isolated from the innocent public somewhere around Ogboji in Orumba South Local Government.

“Three members of the gang were killed, and four improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were recovered and defused.

“In addition, two pump action guns and 16 live cartridges were recovered, as well as one Lexus Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). A 51-year-old kidnap victim was rescued.”
