In a deadly fire battle with the police, six suspected members of the Proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its armed affiliate, Eastern Security Network (ESN), were slain.

They were slain when they attempted to torch the palace of His Royal Highness Eze Dr. E. C. Okeke, chairman of the Imo Council of Traditional Rulers, in the Orlu Local Government Area.

The incident occurred on Monday at 8 a.m., when a large group of criminals in three Hilux cars were spotted shooting erratically and advancing aggressively towards the Eze’s Palace to cause chaos.

Police spokesman CSP Michael Abattam confirmed the event and stated that, upon receiving the information, the Command’s Tactical Team and the military quickly mobilised and rushed to the palace.

“Upon spotting the unified team, the thugs engaged them in a gun duel while throwing gasoline bombs. The valiant team responded by assuming a professional stance.

In the subsequent exchange of gunfire, the thugs were overwhelmed by the overwhelming firepower of the combined crew, and six of the thugs were killed while others fled with varying degrees of bullet wounds.

According to him, the agents discovered one pump-action firearm, three blood-stained cutlasses, and three Hilux vehicles believed to have been stolen from law-abiding residents.

According to him, peace has been restored in the region, and the dead bandits have been removed and deposited in the morgue.
