•As citizens stay indoors
Following the attack on the residential house of Governor Hope Uzodima of Imo State, Soldiers from 34 Artillery Brigade Obinze, have taken over the entire communities of the two Local Government Areas of Oru East and Oru West in that locality.
Sunday Tribune gathered that the soldiers had immediately commenced a comprehensive house-to-house search for those suspected to be involved in the arson.
An indigene of the area who could not travel back because of the situation in his community said that his area had become a no-go area because of the presence of heavily armed soldiers in the area.
The source who did not want his name in prints added that he was warned not to come back yet until the situation was calm.
The current situation had subjected indigenes of the two Local Government Areas to stay indoors permanently for fears of harassment and intimidation.
The soldiers, it was further gathered, had engaged in this action to forestall further breakdown of security and bring the tensed atmosphere in the locality to normalcy.
Some yet-to-be-identified men had early Saturday attacked the country home of Governor Uzodinma and set it ablaze. Two security personnel were reportedly killed during the attack.
