The Nigerian Army 34 artillery has confirmed the death of a notorious cult leader, Charles Ojeoru a.k.a Charlie boy.

This was after a gun battle between Army and cultists in Ohaji Egbema area of Imo State.

The Army, who described Charles Ojeoru as a cultist, said he was the gang leader of a notorious group that mainly operated in Awara, Imodube and Ogwewe communities of the oil producing Ohaji Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State.

In a statement by the Assistant Director Army Public Relations, Imo state, Lieutenant Haruna Tagwai, he said the cultist died during a gun battle between the strike Force of 34 Artillery Brigade Obinze, and cultists in the area.

The Ohaji Egbema Local Government and the environs appear to be a regular attraction to cultists and other miscreants due to its oil rich nature. However, the Army says a clearance operation was being carried out to cleanse the area, as well as Imo state in general.

Lieutenant Tagwai stated that some other members of the notorious gang had also sustained various degrees of injuries while some are still on the run. Nevertheless, they would not rest on their laurels until the criminals are apprehended.
