The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has described establishment of security outfit Ebubeagu by the Southeast Governors as unnecessary waste of time.
The group faulted the outfit launching without prior assembling and equipping of the personnel.
In a statement by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB said there was no need for another security outfit, warning anyone joining the Ebubeagu to spy on its Eastern Security Network (ESN) to be ready to meet his ancestors.
The statement reads in part: “It has come to the attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that South East Governors have shamefully and belatedly announced the formation of an abstract security outfit called Ebubeagu to secure the zone from Fulani terrorists herdsmen they allotted our ancestral lands to.
“What a mockery the puppets have made of themselves in their usual quest to please their slave masters! How can you launch a security outfit without first assembling the personnel and equipping them?
“When Amotekun was formed it was not abstract, the personnel and their equipment were handy. When our leader floated the gallant Eastern Security Network, ESN, the men were on ground.
“How then did South East traitors called Governors announce a security outfit without any personnel or were they under any pressure to hurriedly make the announcement after years of foot-dragging and deceit?
“However, whether or not they were under any influence, we want to remind them that there is no need for them to form another security outfit in our land since we have our formidable ESN.
“They woke up from their slumber rather too late. We have gone beyond that stage unless they are on a mission to sabotage ESN.
“Any other security outfit formed in South East will crash because ESN is already on ground and living up to expectations. ESN was floated based on the clamour by our people, and they have since thrown their support behind the outfit.
“Forming another regional security outfit is suspicious, and a needless waste. The governors failed our people when they needed their protection. It’s already late
“Biafrans will not be deceived by this purported EBUBEAGU security outfit which is a huge joke.”
