How Gloria Okolie aided attacks for ESN, IPOB – Police

The Nigeria Police says 22-year-old Gloria Okolie was arrested after she spied for the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its armed wing, the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

This was contained in a statement issued on Sunday by Aremu Adeniran, Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, who stated that Gloria was arrested in an operation with the military and other security forces.

The Police have come under attack for detaining Okolie for weeks, without a detailed explanation of her arrest or offences.

According to Adeniran, the suspect took part in the attacks on security formations, critical infrastructure including INEC offices, and killing of security operatives in the South-East.

“The native of Umutanza in Imo was arrested as part of Operation Restore Peace efforts to break IPOB’s information, drugs and arms supply chain,” the spokesman said.

“Gloria Okolie is a member of IPOB/ESN in Imo State who worked closely with one Benjamin Uzoma Emojiri a.k.a “Onye Army”, one of the ESN commanders earlier declared wanted by the Police.

“Onye Army co-planned, coordinated and executed the assault on Imo State Police Command Headquarters and Imo State Headquarters of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS).

“Her arrest and the revelations from her confession assisted the Police in the arrest of “Onye Army”, a major breakthrough in the quest to restore law and order in the South-East region.”

The police spokesman also stated that Okolie used her gender and innocent looks as camouflage to carry out espionage against military and police targets on behalf of IPOB/ESN.

The suspect, the Force continued, also got cash, drugs and weapons on behalf of IPOB/ESN and delivered same to their commanders in their camps.

Adeniran stated that she actively aided and abetted multiple acts of murder, arson and malicious damage to both private and public property by the ESN.

“A lot of the deadly and unfortunate attacks on security personnel and assets, with numerous fatalities, have the imprimaturs of Gloria Okolie, the spy girl of ESN militants.”

The Police disclosed that the suspect will be charged to court at the end of investigation.
