Police abandon vehicles, fled after fiercely engaging ESN Vigilantes in Imo (Video)
Members of the Eastern Security Network is said to have engaged with Nigeria Police officers in a fierce clash in Orlu, Imo State.
Obtained footage circulated by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu on Friday evening indicated two vehicles, a black Jeep and a white Van allegedly abandoned by men of the Nigerian security.
According to the video, which did not show any uniform personnel nor a number of the officers noted they arrived at the area in search of ESN internal security volunteers.
One of the volunteers who was an eyewitness they were all in a bush on security assignment when both vehicles drove in and opened fire at them.
Reacting on his Facebook page, the IPOB leader, who also serves as ESN Commander, Kanu, said that is a warning to the rest of the Southeast governors organizing counter safety body against them.
He called on the Inspector General of Police and Hope Uzodinma to desist in deploying officers in search of ESN operatives or they will face a similar consequence.
Kanu had earlier urged herders within rural communities in the Eastern Region to relocate to urban areas to enable the safety outfit to fish out criminals marauding in the bushes and farmlands.
He lamented sudden conversation of the farmlands into killing and rapping fields.
