Many Killed As Operatives Clash With Suspected IPOB Members In Imo


BEVERLY HILLS, May 07, (THEWILL) – Several members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have been killed in an encounter with the police in the Orlu area of Imo State.

A  security source  told THEWILL that members of the proscribed group were on their way to attack the Orlu Police Station when they were  ambushed and killed on Thursday in a joint counter-attack by the military and police operatives

The  sources also said that several stolen vehicles used by IPOB militants in their operation were also recovered, adding that a video of them earlier setting out for the attack had also been released.

“The video shows the militants boarding vehicles as they embarked on the twatted operation,” the source  said.

Orlu, the alleged location of the attack, is the second-largest city in Southeast Nigeria.

This comes about two weeks after a joint operation comprising the Nigeria Police Force, the Nigerian Army and the Department of State Services killed IPOB’s Number Two man, Commander Ikonso, and six other members of the group.
