Oyogist.com has learnt that major tension arose earlier today over the Nigerian Army’s deployment of soldiers and helicopters in Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State in search of Eastern Security Network (ESN) personnels.
According to a statement from the Nigerian Army,
Femi Fani-Kayode while reacting to this incident said;
A popular human rights activist, Oluchi Christy wrote on twitter; “Nigerian government deployed soldiers to Orlu to attack ESN and innocent Orlu Community, Imo State, but sent Northern Governors and Sheik Gumi to dialogue with Fulani terrorists and killer herdsmen.”
Ifa Funso stated that “Too obvious that Nigeria governments are behind Boko Haram, bandits and Fulani herdsmen. I don’t know how a sane government will channel their power more on innocent people in Orlu than the terrorists in Sambisa forest.”
Fadahunsi Olaoluwa tweeted, “More than 36hrs after a kidnap in Kagara, Niger State, the military is busy conducting airstrikes in Orlu, Imo State when they ought to be following after the kidnappers tail. Maybe there’s a direct flight to Kagara from Orlu.”
