According to the source: “He met his waterloo alongside five of his key members yesterday when they attempted to attack Imo State Police headquarters for the second time around 6.00 a.m. of June 6, 2021.
“Four AK-47 rifles, all belonging to police officers who were killed in two police stations, six bombs, 2,000 rounds of AK-47 ammunition, seven AK-47 magazines, two operational buses, one loaded with explosives recovered.
“The joint teams of the police and army gallantly fought and neutralised the IPOB/ESN terrorists after several minutes of fierce gun battle along Works Road, near the police headquarters.
“All the charms the notorious killer, Joseph Uka Nnachi, also known as Dragon, native of Ebonyi State and his group were using, which they so much believed in, have failed them once more.”
The south east and south-south regions have been in the eyes of the storm in the past few months following attacks by unidentified gunmen.
