Details have exposed how the suspected militants of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who attacked the Orlu divisional police headquarters in Imo State snatched vehicles before the operation.
It had reported how at least eight of them were gunned down during an exchange of crossfire with security operatives.
It’s also gathered that the gunmen stormed Orie Akokwa in Ideato and snatched some vehicles, including a Range Rover SUV, a Toyota mini bus and Hilux van.
After snatching the vehicles, the hoodlums headed to Orlu to attack the police station but they met fortified security agents.
All the stolen cars were recovered from the armed gang.
Though the identities of the men are yet to be determined, police have linked similar attacks in the state to members of the Eastern Security Network, the armed wing of the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).
