Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, says the group’s security outfit, Eastern Security Network, ESN, was established to fight criminal elements and to protect the Igbos from external forces, particularly the Fulani herdsmen.
In a tweet on Wednesday night, Kanu restated that the security outfit “was created out of necessity” stating that it would continue to protect the Igbos from all forms of criminalities.
The tweet reads, “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”.
