IPOB accuses FG of bombing ESN operatives in Enugu

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has raised the alarm over an unprovoked attack by the Army against operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) in Enugu.

It alleged a combined team of soldiers and security operatives on Friday, July 23, 2021, unleashed an attack against innocent ESN operatives at Akpofu Nkanu forests in Enugu State.

In a statement by the Media and Public Relations, Emma Powerful, the group described the attack as unwarranted, stressing the ESN operatives did nothing to deserve the unprovoked action.

It maintained the ESN had only been defending the communities in the area against incessant attacks and destruction of their farms by killer herdsmen.

The statement reads in part: “The hypocritical Nigerian security agents have failed to protect Biafrans against the incursions by Fulani jihadists.

“Yet instead of allowing ESN to defend our ancestral land against terrorists invasion, the Nigeria Army and other security agencies have been unleashed against innocent volunteer security outfit safeguarding the lives of Biafrans.

“This is the height of wickedness. NIGERIA is aiding and abating terrorism. Fulani-controlled federal government gives tacit support to terrorists but crushes peaceful agitators. This is wickedness and hypocrisy which God must judge.’
