Tension as Military Conducts Air Strikes In Orlu in Search Of ESN

Military fighter jets believed to be deployed by the Nigerian Army and Air Force are currently conducting aerial strikes in Orlu communities in Imo State.

City News gathered the situation has worsened the already built-up tension in the area.
Several videos trending online show military helicopters and jets releasing airstrikes in the area with residents scampered for their lives.

A source said, “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.

"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".

The military had also about two weeks ago embarked on same mission to dislodge the ESN said to have erected a stronghold in forests in Orlu axis of Imo State.
