ESN will be launched in Northern Nigeria soon - IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra declared its plan to launch its security outfit, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), in the northern part of Nigeria soon, NATIONAL PANEL gathered.

The secessionist group has vowed to resist the planned deployment of 5,000 vigilantes to the South-East region by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria.

According to the Punch, the MACBAN on Saturday, vowed to deploy 5,000 of its vigilante to the South-East region to protect herders and their cattle.

But IPOB, in a statement signed by its Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, a copy of which was made available to Journalists  on Sunday, said it was ready to resist the plan by Miyetti Allah, adding that such threat was an insult on Igbo land.

The group said that the security outfit for the South-East geopolitical zone, 'Ebubeagu', floated two weeks ago by governors of the region, was dead on arrival.

 “The attention of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra has been drawn to the threat by Miyetti Allah to deploy 5,000 jihadists to Biafra land to protect their cows and herders following the floating of Ebube Agu security outfit by South-East governors.

“We consider this utterance an insult to the entire Biafra and won’t tolerate it despite our grievances against the treacherous South-East governors and the political elite.

“The Miyetti Allah and their terrorists group should know that they shouldn’t play God forever. They are trying to provoke ESN and IPOB to take a drastic action.  IPOB and ESN are running out of patience with their insults,” parts of the statement read.
