Police authorities have deployed helicopters to Imo State to provide surveillance in the wake of attacks by gunmen on several government establishments.

The latest on the string of attacks occurred 48 hours ago with the burning of the Omuma home of the State Governor, Hope Uzodimma.

The attack of the governor’s house followed the killing of a kingpin of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), simply identified as Ikonso aka Holy Cup.

Ikonso was killed when Abba Kyari led men of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) invaded his home in Umuokwe, Awomama in the Oru East Local Government Area of the state.

The helicopters flew at very low level, apparently in a show of force.

The residents are however not comfortable with the height of the helicopters.

All through the weekend and Monday, the helicopters were hovering over the Owerri air space and its environs.

However, IPOB has vowed to avenge the killing of its commander.
