According to social media reports, Many Innocent Citizens have died as the Nigerian Military allegedly shoot and drop Bombs in the Community.
Nigerians are reacting, slamming the Nigerian Army for attacking Innocent ESN and Citizens who did nothing instead of using their power to fight Boko Haram.
IPOB warned the Military to kill one ESN operative and Face war.
At the time of filing this report, No ESN operative has been found by the Nigerian Army, as Biafrans warn soldiers to go into the bushes if they are really looking for the ESN, but should be ready to die.

You Couldn't Because You're Bunch Of Gutless Untrained Cowards Who Would Rather Kill Innocent Civilians To Feed Your Ego. I DARE YOU TO GO CONFRONT ESN"
"Look At The Military Presence In Orlu, Imo State. Over 2000 Soldiers Deployed To Orlu, A Peaceful Community Just Because The @HQNigerianArmy Wants To Protect Armed Fulani Herdsmen Terrorising The Communities In Orlu. This Is Why We Must Fully Arm Ourselves And Defend Our Lands."
EEDRIS ABDULKAREEM: "I come to realize that the Nigerian army is more effective in dealing with civilians instead of fighting terrorism, and we still think this is Democracy? So sad "
Sowore wrote: "The tale of two countries: In Orlu, IMO state, the @MBuhari junta is suddenly alive killing civilians, aerially bombarding #ESN members but ironically in #Kagara , Niger state where bandits abducted school boys, negotiators are peacefully negotiating ransom! #occupyNigeria"

Dr. Olu: "There are reports Nigerian Army is currently dropping air bombs killing people in Orlu, Imo State. Orlu is the second largest city in Imo state- it is only Owerri that is bigger. How do you go to a city and carry out airstrikes? Are we now in Iraq? What is this madness really?"
