Orlu, the commercial and social centre of Orlu Local Government Area of Imo has been deserted following a massive manhunt for members of Eastern Security Network (ESN), the militant wing of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), which has been waging a relentless war against security men as seen by the residents and eyewitnesses on Sunday, May 9, 2021.

IPOB group is said to be behind the spate of attacks on military and police formations, including public institutions.

The latest in their atrocious acts was a failed attack on the Orlu Divisional Police Headquarters, in which 11 of them met their waterloo.

Our correspondent gathered that the heavy police presence in the commercial city has forced many residents indoors as fear of indiscriminate arrests heightened.

They are also afraid of being caught up in an eventual gun duel between security men and the “unknown gunmen”.
