Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State is currently in turmoil as military men allegedly went on a rampage, killing several civilians in revenge for their dead colleagues.
DAILY POST gathered that a group, Eastern Security Network (ESN) said to be an offshoot of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) set up by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had taken on the military men and killed a few days ago.
Our correspondent, who spoke with a resident in the community, learned that the crisis had degenerated into a more worrisome situation, leading to shutting down of shops and market places.
The resident further said that the Orlu main town was impassable at the early hours of today due to military takeover and this, according to him, had resulted in several loss of lives.
He appealed to the state and federal government to quickly intervene to avoid more loss of lives, disclosing that the crisis had lasted for more than four days.
