Many militants were reported killed when the Joint Task Force (JTF) code-named ”Operation Delta Safe” raided a suspected militants’ camp in Okosugbene along the Burutu/Warri in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta on Thursday.
 
A source told newsmen in Warri that the military personnel stormed the camp with two Fighter Jets and about eight Gunboats at about 6 a.m.
 
According to PM News, the camp was said to be an abandoned hideout used by the former militant group, Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) and now occupied by sea pirates.
The JTF were said to have acted on a tip-off on a raid that lasted for about an hour.
”Information about casualties is still unknown.
”The raid caused tension among dwellers of riverine communities as residents fled for safety,” the source said.
The Sector (1) Commander of the JTF, Col. Alhassan Grema, confirmed the raid but declined to give details.
