SWITZERLAND, FEBRUARY 18- The Nigerian Air Force has dropped bombs on the Southeastern town of Orlu in Imo State, media sources and purported eyewitnesses have reported.
According to media sources, the airstrikes started on Thursday noon, and are connected with the military’s resolve to dislodge the Eastern Security Network operatives said to have strongholds in the forests.
The ESN operatives in January had a bloody clash with the Nigerian Army from Obinze barracks, where four soldiers were reportedly killed.
A video of the aerial bombardments on Thursday surfaced with fresh tension and anxiety building in the communities.
