On Sunday, April 17, 2022, troops from the 34th Artillery Brigade of the Nigerian Army (NA) neutralised a member of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its armed affiliate Eastern Security Network (ESN) in Ihioma Community in Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State.

Troops on regular patrol came across members of the irredentist organisation who shot periodically at Banana Junction in order to impose the unlawful sit-at-home order on law-abiding individuals going about their normal business. When the IPOB/ESN criminals saw the army, they retreated in a blue Toyota Highlander towards Ihioma Community for reinforcement.

During the operation, one of the offenders was killed in a firefight, while others escaped in confusion. Troops are searching the region as part of a follow-up effort to find the fleeing dissidents.

After suffering casualties and virtually being denied freedom of action by the military, the irredentist organisation has turned to cheap propaganda to incite public outrage by spreading a doctored video on social media accusing troops of collaboration in their senseless acts. This misinformation should be completely ignored.
