Casualties recorded as soldiers clash with IPOB security personnel in Orlu, Imo state (VIDEOS)


The Nigeria army has reportedly killed at least four civilians in Orlu, Imo state, after clashing with the Eastern Security Network (ESN) established by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

TMZNaija gathered that the clash was triggered after some soldiers allegedly assaulted some youths in the town on Sunday night.

An eyewitness said the soldiers shot one of the youths dead after they were confronted following the assault.

The soldiers were said have returned later at night only to meet stiff resistance from personnel of the IPOB security outfit.

A clash between the two groups led to sporadic gunshots, as residents scampered for safety.

TMZNaija further gathered that more soldiers were deployed to the town on Monday, with sporadic gunshots heard in Orlu town and other parts of Orlu local government area (LGA).

Four persons, including a middle-aged woman, were said to have been killed by stray bullets while some properties were burnt.

Videos circulating online showed soldiers firing gunshots in major streets as military operation continued in the affected town as of Monday evening.

At least four Hilux vans conveying heavily armed soldiers were seen patrolling the roads, while two vehicles filled with ESN personnel were sighted in another part of the town.
