Uzodimma: Why I Invited Soldiers To Orlu by EcoBrick: 5:45pm On Feb 19
Following the ongoing military action in some parts of Orlu Senatorial District of Imo State, the state governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma has insisted that his administration would not yield to pressure from those calling for withdrawal of soldiers from the crisis-ridden area.

The governor stated that he invited soldiers in Orlu to restore calm in the area after members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), killed several policemen and innocent citizens in the area.

Uzodimma, who gave the explanation through the state Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barr. Cyprain Akaolisa, at a press briefing in Owerri, said the narrative that innocent people were being killed by the military was intended to shift attention from the despicable activities of IPOB in Orlu.

According to the governor, the government discovered that there were deliberate attempts by IPOB to attack Orlu people and the government in the guise that they were looking for Fulani herdsmen.

These attacks, he said, started during the #Endsars protests last year.

Uzodimma said, “The attacks on police stations and killing of policemen during #Endsars were carried out by IPOB and not protesting youths for the sole purpose of hijacking and stealing weapons.

“They are now using those arms to destroy Orlu.

“They killed 10 policemen, a prominent Orlu son, Ignatius Obiezu and one Emmanuel Okeke (Soludo) collected their Hilux vehicles

“The IPOB also shot and killed four Moslems doing their business in Orlu.


“IPOB said they were looking for herdsmen, but these victims they killed before the crisis, were they herdsmen?

“We heard Nnamdi Kanu celebrating the activities of his men in Orlu that they are doing well by killing innocent citizens. There’s no Fulani herdsmen in Orlu.


“So, we asked ourselves, what is the colouration that IPOB is trying to give this onslaught in Orlu?

“That’s why our government decided to invite military to flush out IPOB and their so called ESN.

“We discovered that there was a camp which IPOB established at Umutanze, Orlu and we sent police to dislodge them. But, it happened that they attacked the policemen and killed two of them. It was after they killed those policemen that government had to bring in the military.


“It was not easy for the military to push them out of that place. But the military succeeded. That was why they came on a reprisal attack and killed the innocent ones.

“They also relocated to Udah in Orsu LGA, a camp at a boundary between Imo and Anambra States. The place is a very depressed groove that no one can easily enter.


“For the past two weeks, surveillance was monitoring that place and there were more than 200 people being trained in that camp. The military had to deploy their arsenal to diminish the IPOB people there.”

The governor expressed surprise that people could call for withdrawal of soldiers from Orlu.

“We can’t do that. We can’t fold our arms for these boys to continue to kill people everyday”.

So it's this useless supreme court governor that invited soldiers to orlu to kill his own people ..

Mr governnor, A child that wakes up in the morning and starts to dance Surugede dance , should realise that surugede dance is dance of the spirits .

Ohakim and Rochas were both disgraced in Imo State, you're next.

If you guys were as serious as this about addressing the herders' menace, there would have been no ESN in the first place. We need LEADERS here. What we have now are DEALERS, using our lives to do business with the Fulani hegemony.

How I wished that the younger generations of Nigerians would be smart enough to learn 'the Google Inc Secret' for a speedy transformation of personal/national economies. It is the one secret our older generations lack which is why they mostly lack personal fulfillment while running the country into a hole out of their stupidity.

The younger generations of Nigerians must value knowledge or they will end up even worse than these thoughtless souls currently piloting the affairs of the country.

If what the governor is saying is true, then Ipob has turned into a full-blown terrorist organisation. I mean, why else would they be killing police, snatching people's vehicles and even killing their fellow ibos, all in the name of ridding iboland of Fulanis.

No reasonable person would support attack of innocent people,even if non-indigenes by any group, including IPOB,but a governor calling the military on its own people without exhausting all avenues of dialogue and conflict resolution,is a new low by a governor.
What is however more worrisome is Uzodinma,using phantom allegations of IPOB wanting to kill or maim and indeed attacking indigenous Orlu people,same IPOB is claiming to defend,to justify the military action.

What makes you think that what the governor said is pure truth? Wait until you hear from the people themselves.

How come Hope could invite soldiers and his Lagos counterpart Babajide, during the endsars protest denied having such power?

By the way, I'm done calling these politicians by their surname, they deserve no respects

I don't know if he is saying the truth or not, that's why my comment was conditional upon the veracity of the governor's statement. But so far ipob has not come out to deny his statements, so for now the governor's account of events is the only version out there. If he is lying then Ipob should come out and deny via an official press release.

All the southern governors/leaders seems desperate to serve the Fulani rulers in this country, i have also noticed that nairaland moderators are playing propaganda with military activities in Orlu, after the news of military airstrikes in Orlu emerged, a social media post by an unknown fellow claiming to be a staff of premium times and indigene of Orlu was quickly rushed to the FrontPage claiming that the attack was on the 14th and nobody was killed, only for the army to confirm that there's an ongoing operation in the location, the same premium times rushed a story of ESN killing Fulani children at Oba in Idemmilli / Onitsha urban whereas we the locals have no knowledge of such incident. Uzodimma should know that Ohakim and Okorocha kissed Fulani ass more than him yet where are they today? God would surely punish him for his atrocities.

These Terrorists are competing with their brothers in North East, by killing their fellow brothers aka innocent civilians.

Let it be on note that Hopeless Uzodimma is the power behind the onslaught of innocent people of Orlu.

When governors from the North like Metawale and Bala Mohammed are defending theirs kinsmen, Hopeless brought the military to terrorize the serene Orlu and it's inhabitants.
