Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied reports that the security outfit of the secessionist group, the Eastern Security Network (ESN) is behind the recent attacks on security formations across the Southeast region.
Kanu said that the sole duty of the ESN is to resist the attacks of herdsmen and bandits terrorising people of the region.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Kanu stated that “ESN was created in response to the shameful failure of Southeast governors to float a regional security outfit.”
He said, “I want to make this clear: ESN is not after security agents. ESN is focused on stopping terrorists who are rampaging our communities! The sole duty of the ESN is to resist the attacks of the terrorists, bandits and herdsmen against Biafran.
“ESN was created in response to the shameful failure of South-East governors to float a regional security outfit. There’s no way IPOB would fold its hands and watch terrorists with an evil agenda decimate our communities while the government maintains criminal silence!”
