Recently, a lot has been going on in the Orlu area of Imo State whereby different eyewitnesses have explained that soldiers have been killing people in the Orlu Area of Imo State.
From some reports we were able to combine, we learned that Soldiers had assaulted some group of young men who were having drinks in a neighborhood bar in the local government. Also after the Soldiers had assaulted these young men, we learned that they fought back and seem to have injured one of those soldiers.
Then, it looks like that’s what Sparked the Soldier’s attention as some soldiers returned to the Orlu Local Government Area in Imo State with Hilux trucks. These armies came in dozens as they took over most of the streets in Orlu shooting at anything.
The police spokesman in Imo State, Ikeokwu Orlando explained to Premium Times that a military operation was indeed going on at Orlu, but much was not being said by the Police Spokesman.
With that, there are some other reports on Social Media that also claimed it’s the Eastern Security Network (ESN) and the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) that clashed with some Soldiers in Orlu.
The Governor of Imo State has now reacted to this unfortunate Massacre at the Orlu Local Government Area Of Imo State.
“This afternoon, I received a very disturbing report on the activities of a group of militants who unleashed a shooting spree in the Orlu area of the state, killing and maiming innocent citizens in the process.
“I am totally appalled by this sad report which appears to paint a picture of a near breakdown of law and order in the Orlu area. The government condemns in its entirety this act of extreme hooliganism and brigandage.
“This is completely unacceptable to this administration. Those behind this callous barbarism will surely regret their actions.
The Governor of Imo State then continued talking about their plans to restore security in the Orlu zone of Imo State, He said,
“Consequently, I have directed the security agencies to fish out without fail and all those behind the carnage would be immediately brought to hook.
“Let no one be in any doubt that the perpetrators of this dastardly act will never escape justice. I assure them that they will pay for their cruelty against peace-loving and innocent people.
“As an interim measure to immediately restore peace in Orlu zone, a dusk to dawn curfew (6 pm – 6 am) is hereby imposed in the following Local Government areas of Orlu zone namely: Orlu, Orsu, Oru East, Oru West, Ideato North, Ideato South, Njaba, Isu, Nwangele, and Nkwerre.
“All law-abiding citizens are advised to comply strictly with the curfew as announced. Anyone caught violating the curfew will be treated as a suspect.
“The government wants to assure all Imo people that the situation in the Orlu area is under control. Security operatives have been deployed on a 24-hour patrol of the zone. Equally, every security measure necessary has been put in place to ensure that law-abiding citizens can go about their businesses in the affected areas without any fear of molestation.”
It looks like calm is beginning to restore in the Orlu Area of Imo State as The Pulse reported that. Let’s see some social media reactions and video on this Orlu issue.
This isn’t the nonsense that most of the gullible ones wants to enjoy. You see that mayhem that happened in Orlu is not going to be business as they take it, but be rest assured that not only the emergency of an independence nation, probe will be conducted normally and justice… https://t.co/kFUhnpw7bP
