At least thirty clerics have been arrested in Orlu, Imo State by the Nigerian soldiers following clash between the Eastern Security Network, ESN and soldiers
According to IGBERE TV, there was a fresh raid on Sunday and soldiers were seen shooting sporadically before arresting some clerics.
An eyewitness who spoke with newsmen revealed that soldiers stormed “Lord’s Sabbath Mission, Umunam Atta in Njaba LGA, a superintending priest, whose community leaders had vouched for his exemplary conduct, was whisked away with his adolescent daughter and pastors.”
He also said that “At the House of Prayer International Covenant Church, some painters were among the 10 persons whisked away by soldiers who stormed the church around 6am shooting from all sides”.
Recall that last week, no fewer than 33 clerics and church elders were whisked away from different white garment churches in the Orlu area with a church razed to the ground while others were riddled and totally defaced with high caliber military firearms.
