Uneasy Calm As Police Desert Streets In South East, Nigeria

Policemen posted to the South East are seeking redeployment following the spate of killings of security operatives in the region, Daily Trust on Sunday has learnt.

Tens of policemen have lost their lives in several attacks on police formations across the South East as the region has recorded more than fifty attacks on security formations and killings of operatives in the South East by suspected members of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, in recent times.

Most of the cities in the region have also become a ghost town as businesses are forced to close early to avoid being caught in crossfire.

Meanwhile, at least seven policemen are facing an orderly room trial for deserting their duty posts in Imo State.

There are strong indications that policemen attached to the Imo State Police Command are currently seeking to be redeployed out of the state following a series of attacks on security personnel by suspected members of ESN, the paramilitary wing of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Some of the policemen are seeking help from both serving and retired senior police officers as well as from their political godfathers.
