Governor Hope Uzodinma has clarified the military operation in Orlu, saying that he invited soldiers to restore law and order in the area.

This followed the killing of 10 policemen and innocent citizens by members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

He said his administration would not yield to pressure from those calling for withdrawal of soldiers from the area.

Uzodinma gave the explanation through the state Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barr. Cyprain Akaolisa, at a press briefing in Owerri.

He said the narrative that innocent people were being killed by the military was intended to shift attention from the despicable activities of IPOB in Orlu.

According to the governor, the government discovered that there were deliberate attempts by IPOB to attack Orlu people and the government in the guise that they were looking for Fulani herdsmen.

These attacks, he said, started during the #Endsars protests last year.

Uzodinma said, “The attacks on police stations and killing of policemen during Endsars were carried out by IPOB and not protesting youths for the sole purpose of hijacking and stealing weapons.

“They are now using those arms to destroy Orlu.

They killed 10 policemen, a prominent Orlu son, Ignatius Obiezu and one Emmanuel Okeke (Soludo) collected their Hilux vehicles

“The IPOB also shot and killed four Muslims doing their business in Orlu.

“IPOB said they were looking for herdsmen. But these victims they killed before the crisis, were they herdsmen?

“We heard Nnamdi Kanu celebrating the activities of his men in Orlu, that they are doing well by killing innocent citizens. There’s no Fulani herdsman in Orlu.

You invited soldiers to kill your people, shame to you a saboteur, a sycophant jus for power and money. How many northerners have invited soldiers to kill their citizens, the wicked will never go unpunished. Court governor will not make it, God will fight for the less privileged.

You can drag ESN back to #EndSars my friend. Talk of grabbing at straws.
