According to the Vanguard paper, the clashes were claimed to have prompted the military to launch attacks upon hearing that members of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, had set up a forest base from which to carry out their operations.

“The insider source who did not want his name mentioned explained how the operation began: “The military first visited the ESN camp in Umunna, in the local government area of Orlu, and our men got the information and moved there before they got there. Not only did they visit another camp, but they didn’t see anybody. So, the army demolished the ESN camps. In this action, nobody was killed. Our people, however, are living with fears.

They also used a helicopter on the first day to hover across the forest to find the Eastern Security Network camps.

“The reality is that villages near the forest live in anxiety because the sound of guns made them even run inside their homes and some of them left their homes for fear of being hit by a stray bullet.”
