Nnamdi Kanu says ESN will continue operations in South East because of Buhari’s govt
Nnamdi Kanu says ESN will continue operations in South East because of Buhari’s govt. ESN is the military group created by IPOB to defend Biafrans in Nigeria.
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has announced that the Eastern Security Network, ESN will continue to operate in the south-eastern part of the country.
ESN is the military arm of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
In a statement on Wednesday, the 23rd of June, 2021, Kanu blamed President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration of ‘killing and abducting biafrans’.
According to Nnamdi Kanu, the present administration has threatened the lives and security of Biafra and so they have no choice but to deploy their military group to defend itself against anyone who tries to harass any member.
He wrote; “Again #ESN was created out of necessity. As long as Buhari’s regime continues to kill and abduct #Biafrans across the (SE)! #ESN will continue to protect Igbo people from the brutal attacks of terrorists, bandits and herdsmen.”
However, Nigerian security agencies have recorded huge success in capturing the ESN members responsible for wreaking havoc, burning police stations and INEC offices in the region.
But Nnamdi Kanu made it clear that their existence is necessary because the lives of Biafrans are threatened on a daily basis and they have faced multiple false accusations for crimes they did not commit.
A lot of ESN members have been caught and some killed for crimes that they were accused of committing.
Just a few months ago, one of the major ESN leaders who goes by the name of Ikonso, who was allegedly the one who led a major prison break in Owerri, Imo state, was also shot and killed by police officers after they traced him to his hideout in a forest.
Based on that context, Kanu is not leaving any stone unturned to protect the lives of ESN members in Nigeria.
