Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has been questioned over the clash between the army and security network formed by IPOB.
The clash between the Eastern Security Network of the Indigenous People of Biafra and the Nigerian army in Orlu, Imo state has been condemned.
Nigeria’s former minister of education, Oby Ezekwesili while reacting to the clash, queried the deployment of battalion of soldiers against ESN operatives in Orlu.
Many properties and cars worth millions of naira were destroyed in the clash
The clash was said to have occured during a military operation in the community suspected to be the operational base of ESN.
ESN is a regional security outfit recently launched by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Reacting to the development, Ezekwesili demanded that President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Army give reason for Army’s presence in the town.
Her tweet read: “Can the @HQNigerianArmy please communicate what’s going on here in Orlu Town to the public?
“It certainly has the appearance of a war scene. Is an entire town under combat operation from our Military?
“Can the C-in-C let Nigerians know who ordered this operation?”
