The Nigerian Police Special Forces team have arrested one Mmesoma, an alleged leader of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Eastern Security Network (ESN) in their camp at Awo Idemmili border, near Orlu in Imo State.
Mmesoma was arrested after one of his followers, who was initially arrested by the police, led the police to his hideout.
In a video posted earlier by Gallant Military Info, an arrested member of the unknown gunmen group identified as Chinansa told the police that Mmesoma was the group’s leader that have been terrorizing the State.
He also gave the police information about his whereabout.
Mmesoma, who was later arrested by the security agents after sustaining gunshot injuries in an encounter with the police team, confessed that he had since left ESN to form his own group after a misunderstanding.

Items susch as explosives, shotguns and stolen vehicles were recovered from Mmesoma. Also some of the gang members were killed and sent to be with their ancestors during an encounter with the police.
The fact that the Southeast and areas of the South-South have been subjected to massive attacks in the last two months is no longer news. Kidnappings, ritual killings, herdsmen attacks on farmers, and attacks on police stations and government buildings have all become commonplace, with agitators from the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and unknown gunmen terrorizing villages.
