Combat planes of the Nigerian military paraded the troubled Orlu communities in Imo State in a bid to locate and engage operatives of the Eastern Security Network.
Several locals have shared videos of military planes hovering over their communities with reports of airstrikes and casualties.
In one video shared by a Biafra activist Emeka Gift, military aircraft can be seen hovering above with the sound of chaos in the background.
He captioned the video “There is currently air bombardments in Orlu Imo State by Nig soldiers. Many innocent people have been killed with airstrikes. We also learned that market places were affected.
Nig military is currently looking for #ESN who are checkmating the activities of killer Fulani herdsmen”
