The self-proclaim leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has ordered operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) to halt attacks on the Nigerian military in Orlu, Imo State.
Recall that an undisclosed number of people lost their lives and property destroyed following the clash between IPOB’s security outfit and soldiers in Orlu Local Government Area of the state.
In a post on his Twitter handle, Nnamdi Kanu said based on the intelligence available, the army and the police had withdrawn their operatives from Orlu.
Following the withdrawal, the wanted IPOB leader asked the security outfit to cease fire and instead monitor the movement of Fulani herdsmen.
Kanu, in a tweet wrote: “Credible intelligence indicates that the army and police reinforcement deployed from Owerri have been ordered to withdraw from Orlu.
“For this reason, I hereby direct the officers and men of the Eastern Security Network to stand down, while remaining vigilant to any Fulani terrorist activity in Biafra land.”
