The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has explained why the collaboration of its Eastern Security Network (ESN) and the Ebubeagu security network recently floated by the Southeast Governors would not work.
The group said the Ebubeagu was not only floated to spy on ESN and IPOB but born out of envy by the Governors who it alleged were being remote-controlled.
In a statement by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB explained asking ESN to collaborate with Ebubeagu was akin to asking Lucifer to midwife the birth of Jesus Christ.
It acknowledged the genuineness of the synergy call by eminent personalities from the region but maintained the Governors would have supported ESN, which it said had been doing well since inception instead of floating theirs.
The statement reads in part: “Out of envy and jealousy as those being remote-controlled by the Caliphate, the southeast governors belatedly, and without coordination announced a ghost security outfit – Ebubeagu.
“For the discerning minds, the action of the governors and their slave masters is a suspect. They are out for something sinister but we are too smart to fall for it.
“Where are the personnel of the so-called ‘Ebubeoke na Ngwere? When Amotekun was formed by South West Governors, did you not see their personnel and equipment?
“When our Leader established ESN did you not see our gallant men? How then are you asking ESN to collaborate with ghost Ebubeagu that has no identifiable personnel?
“How can ESN collaborate with Ebubeagu that is being supervised by the compromised Fulani-controlled Nigeria security agencies?
“Asking ESN to collaborate with Ebubeagu is like asking Lucifer to midwife the birth of Jesus Christ. But for the gullible, Ebubeagu was simply floated to spy on ESN and IPOB.
“The aim of the Caliphate in forcing their puppets called southeast governors to float the imaginary outfit is to scuttle the bonding unity among Ndigbo and set our youths against themselves but we are ahead of them in this game.
“If the southeast governors were sincere, they would have rather supported ESN which has been doing a pretty job since inception instead of floating this joke and mockery.
“They should hide their faces in shame for working against the desire of their people. Go and conduct an opinion poll among Ndigbo and know what they want: whether ESN or Ebubeagu is their choice, then the result will determine the next line of action.
“The security of our land is sacrosanct and too sensitive to be left in the hands of these political desperados without conscience. They can easily compromise it for a pot of porridge and selfish political interest. We will never take such a stupid risk.”
