Nnamdi Kanu, the diaspora-based leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has lashed out at Nigerian soldiers after heavy shootings were reported on the streets of Orlu, Imo State, South-east Nigeria, on Monday.

The situation in the community, as well as the circumstances that led to the shootings, appear hazy, for now.

Stakeholders who spoke with RPTVblogs on Monday said there was an ongoing military operation in the community, as a result of a clash between the Joint Security Taskforce (JTF) of the Imo State government’s ‘Operation Search and Flush’ patrol team and some IPOB youth believed to be members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

Apparently displeased with what happened in Orlu on Monday, controversial Kanu labeled the Nigerian military “wretched cowards”.

“Hope Uzodinma tell those cowards in #Zoo military uniform you moved out of Obinze to leave people’s shops and properties alone. An army that specialises in arson is that one an army? Wretched cowards!” Kanu wrote on his known Facebook page on Monday night.

“What has somebody’s shop got to do with your humiliation today? Come inside the bush if you are looking for ESN not killing innocent civilians in their homes.

“Orlu is not #Obigbo. Useless fools that cannot fight in the bushes only doing gra-gra inside township. Come inside the bush #ESN is waiting to greet you.”
