NAF Jet 300x191 - Military’s Presence In Orlu, Misplaced Priority – Nigerians Condemns Military Hours After Abduction Of Students In Niger

The alleged invasion in some communities in Orlu, Imo State by operatives of the Nigerian Air Force has continued to generate reactions from Nigerians.

It was gathered that the strike started on Thursday morning worsening the already built-up tension in the areas.

A video of the aerial bombardments on Thursday surfaced with fresh tension and anxiety building in the communities.

Confirming the military operation, the army spokesperson of the 34 artillery Brigade, Obinze, Owerri, Imo state, Babatunde Zubairu, said the locals were not being harassed.

He confirmed the deployment of helicopters and other military gadgets in the operations.

Nigerians, however, have condemned the deployment of the military operatives to Orlu days after the students and staffs of the Government Science College Kagara in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State were abducted by bandits in the early hours of Wednesday.

Some Nigerians have described the action of the military as a misplaced priority and charged them to face terrorism and banditry in the North-East.

Nigerians have taken to the microblogging platform to react to the development on Twitter.
