OHAFIA-TV News | Orlu crisis: Gov. Uzodinma imposes dusk-to-dawn curfew as death toll escalates

The Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, has imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on crisis-ridden Orlu LGA and neighboring communities including Nkwerre, Ideato-south, Ideati-north, Njaba, and Isu.

The Governor, who took aback at the increasing level of killings in the areas, has immediately deployed military men to arrest the situation.

According to the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Print Media, Modestus Nwamkpa, “the Governor has deployed security agencies for a 24-hour patrol to control the situation.

“He has, therefore, warned that any individual or group of individuals caught fueling crisis will be arrested by the military.

“So, residents in these areas are advised to obey the dusk to dawn curfew as imposed by the state Governor or have themselves to blame if caught. This implies residents are not expected to walk around 6pm to 6am.”

OHAFIA-TV News gathered that the root cause of the crisis was as a result of a faceoff between a group, Eastern Security Network (ESN), and the military which resulted in loss of lives.
