Residents in Orlu and nine other local government areas are still living in palpable fear notwithstanding the dusk to dawn curfew imposed by the Imo State government, following the unrest in the area.
Reporters, who visited Orlu town, reported that streets are still deserted and economic activities crippled.
Shops, other business concerns are under lock and key. Security personnel barricaded everywhere.
Residents are locked up at home for fear of being hit by stray bullets. The residents said that all they want is peace and normalcy.
The Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly, Paul Emeziem, has pleaded to the people of the area to cooperate with security agencies, to forestall further breakdown of law and order in the area.
