Nnamdi Kanu has expressed fury over the hunt for personnel of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, in forests in the Southeast, saying that the same scrutiny was not done for other vigilante groups in the country.
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB also chided Southeast governors for not identifying with ESN, saying that they have failed to follow the example set by Southwest and Northern governors who respectively identified with Amotekun and Miyetti Allah.
Kanu who spoke through the publicity secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful said:
“Amotekum has been on for a while, Miyetti Allah without any legal backing or permission from Northern governors, has a fully operational Fulani nationwide Vigilante group.
“No governor from the North has ever condemned Miyetti Allah for setting up a security outfit. No Northern journalist has written condescendingly about the illegality of Myetti Allah’s vigilante or questioned their right to have one.
Noting that the ESN has not gotten the backing of any of the Southeat governors, he said:
“No Fulani or any other commentator has written or offered any critique of Miyetti Allah’s vigilante group but as soon as ESN was launched their COVID-19 infested Army and airplanes came out to search Biafran forests like Herod searching for baby Jesus.
“Nigeria is a country without soul nor conscience. A country where the voice of reason is silenced but educated illiterates serving the interest of the oppressors get all the media attention they need.”
