#iPGN: Military Deploys Fighter Jets, Surveillance Aircrafts In Search Of Niger Delta Avengers

The military deployed fighter jets and surveillance aircrafts in the creeks of Delta State this morning to comb for members of the Niger Delta Avengers.

Some residents of riverine communities in Warri South West local government called Vanguard on phone at about 10.00am, saying ‎ that fighter jets and surveillance aircrafts were flying about in their area.

It was gathered that the fighter jets belong to the Nigeria Airforce and ‎that the security agencies were now strongly collaborating to outwit the militants.

Earlier today at about 4. 30am, soldiers swooped on Kurutie community ‎in search of the Avengers .

They left the riverine town for Okerenkoko, another Ijaw town in Gbaramatu kingdom.

Many residents, including women and children, who fled Oporoza when soldiers, who have occupied the town, came on Saturday are still trapped in the bush.

Security agents were combing for militants, who they ‎suspected were hiding in some locations in the creeks.

The military carried out aerial bombardment in Oporoza ‎in 2009 while searching for ex militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo.
