Tension As Nigerian Military Conducts Air Strikes In Orlu In Search Of ESN

Military fighter jets believed to be deployed by the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Air Force are conducting aerial strikes in Orlu communities in Imo State, which has worsened the already built-up tension in the areas.

SaharaReporters learnt that the airstrikes started on Thursday noon, and are connected with the military’s resolve to dislodge the Eastern Security Network operatives said to have strongholds in the forests.

The ESN operatives in January had a bloody clash with the Nigerian Army from Obinze barracks, where four soldiers were reportedly killed.

A video of the aerial bombardments on Thursday surfaced with fresh tension and anxiety building in the communities.

“Nigerian soldiers are currently conducting aerial strikes in our areas. Many innocent lives may be lost. They are probably looking for ESN operatives who are checking the activities of killer Fulani herdsmen,” a community head told SaharaReporters.

“People’s homes and market places may be affected. We don’t need aircraft in Orlu. They should go and find the stolen school pupils in Niger State,”
another angry resident said.

“I have the video. There was an aircraft firing shots possibly in a nearby bush. Very reckless of the airforce; civilians are all over the place,” another person said.

SaharaReporters last December reported that the Nigerian Army deployed combat helicopters, gun trucks, and soldiers to search some suspected forests in the South-East states where the ESN, launched by Nnamdi Kanu, was said to be camping.

SaharaReporters also reported that the military search had been going on for days, and had no time frame, as the army was acting on “orders from above.”

A video, from the drones and hidden cameras believed to be installed by the ESN, had captured the Nigerian Army helicopters and their vehicles and soldiers searching for the camp of the ESN for possible arrests.

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.

This better be fake news. What's going on there to warrant such extreme escalation? Orlu is a relatively big town, not just some village. Why would the FG be bombarding there??

Yup Orlu is back on their radar again, just spoke to a friend there who confirmed it. Apparently after incurring heavy losses after series of unsuccessful ground operations by the Nigerian army to rid of the ESN operatives, they are now desperate and have taken their terror to air.

Orlu is densely populated. The Nigerian Army should leave my people alone and go face Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen

In all these, I blame the Eastern governors.

They refused to create a legitimate security force and allowed the brute Nigerian army to make a mincemeat of their people.

Even now, they are still not creating alternatives.
Terrible, terrible governance.

The worst I have seen in this country.

U see wat Okorocha supporters brought to Orlu and Imo State.

They are no longer raping and killing girls on the spot, they are abducting them to the North.

Watch as Afonjas will start justifying this. They always think one-dimensional until it happens to them.

I remember vividly how some people threw caution to the wind to campaign and foist this man on Nigerians. Rochas is one of those. Rochas insulted the Igbo nation because of Buhari. Today he is reaping the fruit of his labour. Nemesis or reward for a job welldone.

Like I once said, the moment the gov is ready to crush the so called Odeshi ESN they will do so using the air.

This is between the gov and illegal security outfit.

Thunder fire them!

So ESN securing our farmers from terrorist herdsmen deserves to be bombed, while "bandits" kidnapping school Boys in the North deserve negotiation and ransom settlement.

Buhari thunder from Afghanistan fire you!
