Military Jet Combs Orlu For ESN Operatives After Failed Land Combat by elgramz: 7:03pm On Jan 27
A combat aircraft of the Nigerian military paraded the tense Orlu communities in Imo State on Tuesday and today (Wednesday) in a bid to locate and engage operatives of the Eastern Security Network accused of killing soldiers and causing mayhem in the area. The aircraft caught the attention of the residents, who believed that the aircraft was sent to locate and engage the ESN operatives.

SaharaReporters saw a video of the military aircraft hovering over the area on Tuesday.

“A helicopter has been deployed in Orlu. The military helicopter has been hovering over civilian homes. They should go to the forest and engage the ESN operatives. There is tension everywhere,” a resident, who did not wish to be identified, said.

On Tuesday, the Indigenous People of Biafra accused the Nigerian Army of killing five innocent residents of Okporo in the Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State.

Since last Friday, there has been a crisis in Orlu after a clash between ESN officers and soldiers resulted in the deaths of people. The soldiers reportedly could not arrest any of the ESN operatives who reportedly overpowered the army, reportedly because of their use of traditional powers. The soldiers were said to have withdrawn with one of them being seen in a viral video rescued by some civilians and taken into a private firm for safety from the rampaging ESN operatives.

The security agencies were said to have planned a reprisal. Witnesses reported sporadic shooting while residents took cover to avoid stray bullets. Five persons, including a middle-aged woman, were said to have been killed by stray bullets from guns of the Nigerian Army while some properties were burnt. The soldiers were said to be drawn from the 34 Artillery Brigade in Obinze.

On Tuesday, some elder statesmen in Imo State also condemned the destruction of lives and property in Orlu due to the clash, while asking the government to restore law and order. The stakeholders in a release had demanded justice for those killed by the military, adding that the state governor, Hope Uzodinma, must show leadership at "this critical time".

The release was signed by Okechukwu Nwanguma, Victoria Ibezim-Ohaeri, Dr Sam Amadi, Fabian Okoye, Stanley Ibe, Dr Walter Duru, Tony Opara, Chidi Igwe and Ogechi Ikeh.

After recent event ,we no longer hear that ESN is an online security network,
The invasion of the military in orlu,!
The curfew is stipulated to start from 6pm-6am
Why do the military withdraws once is 6pm in orlu while coming back by 7am to attack innocent civilians,molesting them
Are they also observing the curfews?

So Wetin you no see for ground na up you wan go see am? Even the sound alone if the ESN guys dey outside dey play ball if them see airplane Shey no be say them go japa? Them go just dey dish out headlines like say na one gig ram dey our heads.

It's called show of force. It's a military technique that is aimed at intimidating the opposition. Just to let una know say we dey around O,E ma lo Shey Yama Yama. The sound also scares them shitless. Go make them maintain.

My dear Igbo brothers. Make una dey calm down. You can never win the superior power of the federal government. Even if you're on the right, they will still win. Don't let miscreants fuel the embers of war. Nothing sweet pass peace.

What is the meaning of this?

Are they trying to the that Nigerian army is weak enough to be challenged by any ragtag group of people with AK-47 and that it is so bad that they need air support before they can even move against them

The fooll in Aso Rock has already infiltrated the Nigerian Forces with his terrorist brothers. Reason why he reveal his strained muscles when we defend ourselves against his bloodsucking brothers.

God Bless Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Moses of our time who keep opening the yansh of the disease in the Presidential Villa.

God Bless Sunday Igboho for standing up for the cause of the Yorubas.

God Bless all Southerners.

If true, let them continue to endanger their lives. If ESN shuts down that their helicopter now with their remote control missile, people would say ESN are terrorists and wicked.

Directly From Cownu to his brainwashed followers......
He keeps pushing and pushing them closer to their deaths while he is hiding abroad with his family members and children.
We pity the mothers of these brainwashed youths....
We have all seen the aftermath of all this incitement before,
We pray we won't witness it again.

Cownu, Cownu, Cownu...... come back home to lead this war you are instigating
That is all we true igbos ask from you biko!

We Rise!

Slowly the faceoff btw IPob and the Nigerian State has drifted into a guerrilla fight....If ESN should combine the tactics used by IRA in their fight against UK on the Nigerian Army...tactics that are very easy nowadays in this technology age to deploy then I make bold to say that the South East might just become another Sambisa forest for the Nigerian Army..

shocked


I think it's high time the people of Orlu asked the people of Udi in Bayelsa what OBJ did to their community in 1999

Even as little as an ant wasn't alive to tell of the bombardment that the Nigerian military released on them.........

Please we don't want war......Just like no sensible igbo man who witnessed the Biafra civil war would ever want such kind of thing to repeat itself for the second time in his lifetime...
