Tension As Nigerian Military Conducts Airstrikes in Orlu In Search Of ESN (Video)
The Nigerian Military has been accused of carrying out air strikes in Orlu, a civilian populated area in Imo state.
Eyewitnesses who shared videos on social media, alleged that the military are carrying out the air strikes while searching for members of proscribed group, IPOB’s Eastern Security Network.
Recall that there was a clash between soldiers and operatives of the Eastern Security Network in Orlu few weeks ago, and this led to destruction of properties and loss of lives in the area.
Kanu, leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, on December 12, launched the ESN, saying the regional security outfit, just like Amotekun in the South-West, would help to tackle crimes and criminalities.
“The Nigerian Army that is supposed to fight Boko Haram was seen everywhere searching for the camp of Eastern Security Network team. But they forgot they are dealing with sophisticated men. There are cameras and drones everywhere watching them,” an official had said.
