Eastern Security Network [ESN] members clash wit sojas for Orlu town,

Heavy shootings were reported in Orlu, Imo State, South-east Nigeria, on Monday.

The situation in the community, as well as the circumstances that led to the shootings, appeared hazy, for now.

Some persons, who spoke with PREMIUM TIMES, said there was an ongoing military operation in the community, as a result of a clash between the army and some youth believed to be members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

Some residents of Orlu have been capturing scenes of the crisis with their phones and uploading clips on social media.

A video posted on Twitter, Monday afternoon, showed soldiers taking positions in a calmed street and firing gunshots.

Some military trucks are seen, in another video, being driven through a street.

A woman’s voice could be heard from the background of the video crying.

“Oh my God, look at them, look at them. Oh, Jesus, I want to go home. I want to go home,” the woman, apparently frightened, cried.

Another video showed flames of fire engulfing a building, while a corpse is seen close by at a veranda of what looks like a shop.
