@DoctorEmto Whilst the Nigerian army is using fighter jets to drop bombs in ORLU in IMO state in search of ESN, they’ve been so helpful to Bandits and Boko Haram terrorists who are getting arms while being snubbed. See how heavily armed these guys are… One Nigeria my ass!
Meanwhile, hundreds of military operatives Thursday launched heavy attacks on the camps of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, in some parts of the forest Umunna in Orlu and Orsu local government areas of Imo state.
Vanguard investigation into the clashes was revealed that the military launched the attacks on hearing that the members of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, had set up a base in the forest from where they would execute their operations.
