Why I invited soldiers to Orlu, Governor Uzodinma finally speaks; tackles IPOB

Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo has lifted the lids on the presence of operatives of the Nigerian Army in Orlu community of the state. During a press briefing on Friday, February 19, the governor said he invited soldiers to Imo state to restore normalcy and set the affected community on the path of peace again. 

It would be recalled that soldiers were seen in Orlu on Thursday, February 18, with military choppers flying in what created a scene of fear and pandemonium. 

 Governor Uzodinma said he invited the Nigerian Army to Orlu to tackle IPOB. 


Residents said the army bombed some places, resulting in the death of innocent citizens of the community. 

Uzodinma, who spoke through the state's attorney general and commissioner for justice, Barr Cyprain Akaolisa, said the government will no longer tolerate the activities of the Nnamdi Kanu-led proscribed group Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), The Nation reports. 

He said the IPOB is responsible for the deaths of many innocent citizens and security operatives and their action is posing a threat to the peace of Orlu and Imo state. 

“The attacks on police stations and killing of policemen during #Endsars were carried out by IPOB and not protesting youths for the sole purpose of hijacking and stealing weapons.

 “They are now using those arms to destroy Orlu. They killed 10 policemen, a prominent Orlu son, Ignatius Obiezu and one Emmanuel Okeke (Soludo) collected their Hilux vehicles."
