Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has urged the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Achebe not to allow his office to be used to ferment trouble for the group’s security outfit, the Eastern Security Network (ESN)

The advice may not be unconnected with the monarch’s comment last Friday while commissioning vehicles and motorcycle donated to Onitsha Ado Community Vigilante by Onitsha indigenes and R&S Loto Limited.

Kanu, who stated this in his tweets, cautioned that such move could lead to regrets if not checked.

He said: “Igwe Achebe, the Obi of Onitsha, MUST not allow his office to be used by Fulani Janjaweed terrorists in Aso Rock to ferment trouble for ESN round Onitsha and environs, otherwise it will end in tears for him & his local Miyetti Allah funded vigilante named Onitsha Ado.”

Achebe had urged the people of the zone to step up security consciousness so as not to be caught unawares by threatening terrorist herders that invaded the country and causing insecurity in Nigeria.

He also asked security agents to up their games, regretting that South east has had enough of invasion of foreigners into their forests.

He said: “In South East our forests have been invaded by Fulani men who call themselves herdsmen, but we know that they are not herdsmen, we know Fulani herdsmen even when we were growing up as people who lives peacefully with the local community but there is a new introduction and movement which is now people from outside the country coming into Nigeria.

“They are coming and moving into our forests, kidnapping and killing our people. We have made representation to the security authorities and we expect them to act now. I know there is serious dialogue going on now. Our Governor have to speak with one voice, is now that action must be taken.

“If you are going from Amawbia in Awka, through that stretch to Nawgu and Enugu Agidi, it is very risky. People are kidnapped on daily basis, traditional rulers of Nawgu and Enugu Agidi, have come to Council Meetings to tell their stories.

“So we call on security agents to rise up to their duties to protect the people, but if they cannot protect the people, ultimately the people will protect themselves and we do not want to get yo that, because we are not law enforcement agents.”

Achebe, who doubles as Chairman of Anambra State Council of Traditional rulers also called on federal government to restrategise in providing security for Nigerians, regretting that the whole country was facing security challenge, particularly in the South East forest.
