One of the arrested commanders of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, Emeoyiri Uzorma Benjamin, alias Onye Army made some shocking confessions.
Onye Army who was arrested by operatives of the Force Intelligence Response Team says he is happy that Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has been arrested while begging the Buhari government for amnesty.
He confessed his alleged involvement in the attacks of government assets and killing of security operatives, including those from the Igbo speaking areas revealing that the heads of 10 girls caught in Imo State were used in preparing charms to fortify members of the group against police bullets.
“…We were not talking to Nnamdi Kanu directly, but we were receiving his instructions from our camp leaders,” Vanguard quoted him as saying.
“Nnamdi Kanu said we should dismantle all checkpoints and even kill the security agents manning the checkpoints because they were killing Igbo people. I believed him and obeyed the order because I had taken an oath to obey Nnamdi Kanu, the supreme leader of IPOB.
“During our first attack, Ikonso brought two AK47 rifles while two of our members brought two locally made guns which we used to attack a police checkpoint in Orlu where we killed a police officer.
“Two of our members were also killed but the police officers ran away, abandoning their vehicle, which we burnt and took away one of the police rifles. After the operation, we attacked several other police stations and checkpoints.
“Then Ikonso, Engineer Mike and Temple organized the attack at the Owerri Prisons and Imo State Police Command, where several inmates were freed and more than 50 police rifles were carted away on the instruction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu because he said nobody deserved to be in prison.”
“I was in his residence on the night he was attacked by security agents. I fought with my AK-47 rifle, but I abandoned it and escaped through the back gate when I expended all the bullets in the rifle,” he said.
He said they proceeded to burn the house of Hope Uzodimma, the Governor of Imo State and killed one of his security personnel in retaliation for the death of Ikonso who was gunned down by security agents.
“The white and red clothes we tied on our bodies in the video were charms which we call local bulletproof and we prepared charms with the heads of 10 young girls,” he added.
Nnamdi Kanu, who had constantly delivered live broadcasts on social media from the United Kingdom, was arrested last weekend in Kenya and bundled to Nigeria by security operatives.
