EYE WITNESS REPORT:
Everywhere in Orlu LGA of Imo state, there is confusion, all the markets are deserted, I have been to International Market, Old Market, Afo Ogidi and Ogboshishi markets to see things for myself.
The Nigerian Army has lost two of its officers to the ESN and has blocked the new Orlu Owerri road after Harvesters Hotel.
No one knows what will happen in the next minute. A stray bullet from the ESN has caused Mawatec LTD security personnel to leave their office.
A vandalized Hilux van belonging to the police is parked on the side of the road in Ogboshishi Market.
As I write, gunshots can be heard. Nigeria is gradually slipping into a state of war. God have mercy on us.
