The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has commended what it called the gallantry of the men of Eastern Security Network (ESN) for the resolute defence of Biafran ancestral land in the last one year of its inauguration.
IPOB also said it commended the ESN for staking their lives for the protection and security of Biafran mothers, wives and sisters.
Comrade Emma Powerful said that since ESN came on board, the murderous activities of Fulani jihadists masquerading as herdsmen have been put on check across Biafra land although there are still pockets of occasional attacks from the jihadists.
“IPOB worldwide is very appreciative of the ESN operatives for their gallantry and avowed commitment in protecting our land. Bravo on your first anniversary!
“Your success story in the last one year has sent shock waves down the spine of our detractors and saboteurs. Biafrans home and abroad are very proud of you.”
He however said that IPOB’s attention has also been drawn to the laughable and disgraceful claims from those who are being used to sabotage Biafra restoration efforts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that they brought about ESN.
Powerful said that Kanu inaugurated ESN on the 12th of December 2021 without those he called saboteurs, whom he alleged now claim what they did not do.
“Regrettably, those who didn’t play any role in the formation of ESN, want to take credit for what they neither knew the process of its formation nor played any role thereof.
“Today they are calling for the launching of funds to create another ESN in Biafraland. We are calling on Biafrans both home and in the diaspora to be very wary of and shun the planned fundraising event which is a ploy to purportedly recruit 5000 youths into ESN.
“This is another ploy to deceive our people, and make them believe they are in charge of ESN in Biafraland.”
Powerful assured that ESN’s leadership is firmly under the control of people the IPOB leader entrusted the responsibilities into their hands We will not allow saboteurs to create fake ESN to confuse and bring harm to our people.
“Today some gullible Biafrans living in Europe and America are trying to hijack ESN and destroy IPOB but they won’t succeed. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be out from his current dungeon.
“Biafrans must stop giving money to inconsequential fellows who claim they are followers of Nnamdi Kanu. Any fundraise for ESN across the world that doesn’t have the endorsement of the Directorate of State (DOS) is fake and not for ESN. So, everybody must be very careful.
“IPOB/ESN structure is not two but one under one central command. Anybody making any claims to the contrary is an impostor and must be rejected as such. IPOB will not allow such people to continue defrauding Biafran people scattered all over the world.”
