According to a voice giving the narrative in the video, out of the five decomposing bodies, one was of a woman while the others were men.

The narrator said one of the dead men was tied to a tree and probably left to die as his body had already dried up.

When contacted on the phone, the Imo State Commander of the NHFSS, Dr. Fabian Iwuoha who led the operation told journalists on the telephone, that the Command embarked on the operation following intelligence information received which had it that there was kidnappers’ den in the forest opposite FUTO, among the Avu/Ihiagwa road.

He said- “Immediately the Command got the Intel, we contacted Abuja headquarters and the Technical Services for logistics.

Once we got clearance from the Commander General of the Service, Dr. Wole Joshua Osatimehin, and logistics provided by the Deputy Commander General, Technical Services, Amb John Metchie, we immediately mobilised over 50:operatives on Hilux Vans and moved to the forest.

“However, there was no gun encounter because the criminals had left the place maybe long before our arrival.

However, we want to state that as long as crimes that are planned and executed in the forests are concerned, officers and Men of the NHFSS are ready to flush out all the criminals and make the forests very hostile for the criminals to operate from,” Dr. Iwuoha stated.
