BREAKING!!! Military Aircraft, soldiers Engage ESN Personnel In Fierce Gun Battle In Akwa Ibom | #IgbereTV

Military fighter aircraft, Nigerian Army and police personnel today, Tuesday, engaged suspected operatives of the Eastern Security Network in a gun battle, in the Essien Udim Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.

IgbereTV understands that there was heavy gunshots and tension in the LGA as residents report attack helicopters hovering round their locations in obvious search of the ESN operatives.

Residents told SaharaReporters that the gunshots have been continuous leading to palpable tension in the LGA as some of them had not been able to go about their normal business since morning.

“The gunshots keep reverberating. Military and police personnel are trooping in large numbers and surveillance helicopters are flying in the air. I am still in my bedroom,” one of the residents said.

Akwa Ibom, though in the South-South has had its fair share of attacks by unknown gunmen on military and police personnel, stations and locations like rampant in the South-East states.

Only last Tuesday, unidentified gunmen killed a Chief Superintendent of Police, Benedict Okoh Ajide and other police officers in the Essien Udim LGA.

The gunmen also killed a yet-to-be-ascertained number of military officers while many others were injured.
