The camp of the Eastern Security Network linked to the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra in the Orsu Local Government Area of Imo State has been raided by a combined team of military, police, and Air Force personnel.
According to an investigation, the camp of the ESN operatives situated in a thick forest in Udah village, Orsu LGA of the state, has been taken over by military men.
The combined operation of the security agencies was led by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, who also doubles as the leader of the Inspector General of Police Investigation Response Team from the Force Headquarters, Abuja.
Confirming the report, an anonymous source said, “Abba Kyari has been in the state since. He is here on the order of the Inspector General of Police to flush out ESN from Imo State. This is the second week of his operation in the state.”
It was gathered that Kyari was met with stiff resistance from the well-prepared ESN operatives.
It took the arrival of military men in the air at night to subdue the ESN operatives.
The source further reveals, “The Abba Kyari team exhausted their strength and asked for help from the military. By the time the military could mobilize and come through the air in the night, the ESN operatives had vacated the camp, which is located in a valley.”
By the time the security operatives had gained access to the camp, no one of the ESN operatives was met at the location.
“The team, by the time they had access to the camp, couldn’t find any ESN operative. They only found a fish pond, a generator, mattresses, cooking utensils, and clothes,” the source added.
