The IPOB’s ESN expressed anger that despite troubles unleashed on the Eastern Security Network, a firm identified as ‘Charlse Aluminum Company provided shelter for the soldiers.
The Aluminum company had released a clip cautioning the general public particularly motorists against using the road in the heat of a fierce clash between ESN and Nigerian troops.
The management confirmed that two men of the military attached to a team with white patrol were spotted lifeless while displaying a fleeing soldier escaped from the bashed Van towards the company.
Retrieved statement from an online blogger, Its Lizzy, noted that ESN allegedly issued a stringent warning to the company to release the soldiers or face consequences.
The statement described the security operatives as ‘Terrorists’ in uniform.
ESN additionally stated it is not unnecessary and unacceptable to provide accommodation to the ‘terrorists’ in their land when it strives to make life unsuitable for them.
The firm has between 25 to 29 January 2021 to provide people involved, it states.
Recall the Nigerian army apparently, took a war to IPOB’s safety outfit despite worsening security issues in the country, majorly within the Northern.
According to sighted footage, for the second time soldiers have attempted crackdown ESN members in their base in Orlu, Imo State.
Earlier clips disclosed the operatives abandoned tow patrol vehicles on sighting the vigilantes.
Circulated clips yesterday indicated yet another clash believed to have caused an unverified number of casualties including residents and soldiers.
Nnamdi Kanu who shared the Video wrote: "IT SEEMS THERE ARE MORE TRAITORS & EFULEFUS IN OUR MIDST THAN WE PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT"
"The people working in this Charles Aluminum Company in Orlu that provided refuge to fleeing #Zoo terrorist in uniform yesterday will be fished out and dealt with."
"By providing safety to these cowardly terrorists that specialise in killing innocent civilians, they have declared themselves enemies of the people. It is an act of SABOTAGE!"
"The same company that locked their gates to innocent citizens fleeing from these murderers are the ones providing refuge to the killersof our people."
"That age old Igbo disease of betrayal will be cured this year."
