Recall Edujandon.com recently reported that An uncertain number of people were feared dead and property destroyed as members of Eastern Security Network set up by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) clashed with a combined team of police and soldiers in Orlu, Imo state..
The crisis had been brewing since last week after a clash between ESN volunteers and police resulted in deaths.
The security agencies were then said to have planned a reprisal.
Witnesses report sporadic shooting and residents took cover to avoid stray bullets. The shooting was heard as far as neighbouring communities of Okporo, Akata and Umutanze.
The soldiers were said to be drawn from the 34 Artillery Brigade in Obinze
