Troops Shuts down ‘Illegal Militia’ (Neighbourhood) Training Camp in Rivers State

Troops of 6 Division Nigerian Army (NA) on Thursday the 29th November 2018 while on a routine surveillance at Nonwa Gbam, (NYSC Orientation Camp) in Tai Local Government Area (LGA) of Rivers State, discovered an illegal militia training camp (neighbourhood training center).

The troops met over 100 recruits undergoing ‘military’ type of training.

Preliminary investigations into the discovery have commenced in conjunction with sister security agencies in the state to fish out the sponsors of the militia and the training camp.

Recall that similar illegal militia training camps were discovered and disbanded in Benue and Taraba States earlier in the year and measures were promptly taken to forestall breach of security and safety of citizens.
