Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Thursday, vowed that no other regional outfit will be allowed to operate alongside the Eastern Security Network, ESN, in the Southeast.
Kanu made the remark while issuing a warning to Southeast governors to jettison the proposed new security outfit to be launched soon in the region.
The IPOB leader, who spoke through the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful said the proposed security outfit was intended to counter ESN.
He also vowed that IPOB will resist any Miyetti Allah vigilante group formed in the Southeast.
A statement by Powerful said:
“We the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wishes to warn South-East Governors particularly Gov Dave Umahi to jettison the proposed new security outfit they intend to launch based on the advice of the Fulani-controlled Federal Government of Nigeria.
“We know that their intention is to counter the formidable Eastern Security Network, ESN, protecting and defending Biafrans against terrorists and invaders responsible for the senseless attacks, raping and wanton killings of our mothers, wives and sisters in our farmlands and forests.
“We warn these clueless governors in our region not to heed the mischievous advice and attempt by Miyetti Allah and Sokoto caliphate intended to compromise the security of Biafrans.
Any Miyetti Allah vigilante group under any nomenclature formed by Dave Umahi and his fellow Efulefu governors as well as Ohaneze will be resisted by the people of Old Eastern region.
“We, therefore, advise every Biafran father and mother to caution their children against joining Umahi’s vigilante group as such an outfit is already the enemy of the people. Their agenda is sinister and anti-Biafra.”
