Good. Guess what? Foreign investment will move away from the region. More unemployment, more insecurity, more poverty, more violence and deaths.

Very soon all international flight will be diverted to SW, the airlines give security as an excuse. All airports in the east will remain empty.

Then kanu and his followers will blame yoruba media and fulani army for attacks.

Congrats Nnamdi Kanu the scammer, Biafra land is looking good.

All hail Biafra
Investment kill you there, no be who dey alive dey reap from investments. You want Igbos to fold their hands while Fulani terrorists in connivance with armed forces wipeout the Igbo race in their own land. Thunder fire you and investment.

Sometimes I laugh at people who don't know what is going on or know but pretending everything is ok. Igbos are preparing themselves against the incursion of these Fulani terrorists but your laughing because the presidency carrot is still being dangled in your face. By 2022 we will know who laughs last and who perishes!! Go and mark this

This laughable. The SE and the SS region is safer now in the contrary. This propaganda is propagated by Those who are not Igbos and who don't live in Biafra land.

I traveled from Imo State to Anambra Awka. No single criminal policemen on the road, no traffic no armed robbers and that is a good news for Biafrans.

No death except the attack from Fulani herdsmen and the one's from UGM. UGM are not targeting civilians but criminal men in uniform. The entire East is safer now. I am on my way to Onitsha. Everywhere is peaceful.

The propaganda from those who are not Biafrans is laughable. Crying more than the bereaved

Even me, I'm surprised. Is it not the south east that I live in again? All these social media propaganda is confusing nigerians. The south east is safe and we are happy.

This is afonja media.

We the SE’ners love the activity of the unknown gunmen, we will support them with our last breath even if killings quadruple.

We don’t want any zoo police, soldier, DSS, Road Safety, and parastatals in the SE.

Chukwu Abiama continue to protect unknown gunmen and give them the effort to create more chaos because the more the chaos the more our freedom draw near.

Even if all our states turns out like Borno with bombs and guns everywhere we don’t care. The Zoo must fall and fall it must.

Now a question for you, how many Fulani terrorist have been convicted for their killings? if these Fulani terrorists were always convicted and made to face justice for their crime would their be any need for setting up ESN?

You are giving the international airlines more reason not to fly the east. Even igbo industries will further move their investment outside the east. They will like the east for kanu and his criminals.

Killings triple in the south-east after IPOB launched ESN — is this an insurgency?

As the world marked Easter, gunmen invaded the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS) facility and police command headquarters in Owerri, Imo state capital, on Monday. 1,844 inmates were said to have escaped during the attack, and the police pointed an accusing finger at the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Killings triple in the south-east after IPOB launched ESN — is this an insurgency?

As the world marked Easter, gunmen invaded the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS) facility and police command headquarters in Owerri, Imo state capital, on Monday. 1,844 inmates were said to have escaped during the attack, and the police pointed an accusing finger at the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).


Few hours after the attack, Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB leader, in a tweet, said nobody deserves to be jailed in Nigeria. However, his position contradicts the Nigerian constitution which recommends jail term for several offences.

“If Miyetti Allah terror herdsmen & other murderous #Fulani groups, including Boko Haram insurgents, can be arrested, freed and rehabilitated by this neo-colonial Fulanised @NGRPresident, then no single soul deserves to be in any prison in Nigeria. If you know you know! #UGM,” he tweeted.

Recently, several attacks have been launched in the south-east region leading to loss of lives and property. No one seems to be safe as high profile citizens, security operatives and other Nigerians in the region have been victims of these attacks.

TheCable reviewed media reports and data from the Council on Foreign Relations and found a rise in violent attacks after IPOB launched its regional security outfit codenamed Eastern Security Network (ESN).

This has triggered conversations on whether the security outfit has degenerated into a militia leading an insurgency similar to Boko Haram in the northern region.

IPOB’S ESN WAS SET UP TO ‘HALT CRIMINAL ACTIVITY, TERRORIST ATTACKS’

On December 14, IPOB announced the launch of ESN for the south-east and south-south regions — a replication of Amotekun in the south-west zone.

Emma Powerful, IPOB spokesman, said the objective of the security network is to protect the south-east and south-south from “criminal activity”.

“The sole aim and objective of this newly formed security outfit known as Eastern Security Network is to halt every criminal activity and terrorist attack on Biafraland,” he said.

While the security outfit was reportedly set up to protect lives in the south-east, the region has recorded more criminal activities since the unveiling of the ESN.

THREE MONTHS BEFORE AND AFTER ESN LAUNCH: WHAT DO DATA SAY?

TheCable tracked attacks and deaths in the south-east before and after the launch of ESN. Data on the attacks in the five south-east states — Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo — were collated for the months of September, October and November, 2020.

Based on reviewed media reports and data from the Council on Foreign Relations, TheCable understands that a total of 34 attacks and 50 deaths were recorded in the three months preceding the launch of ESN.

In December, when the security outfit was launched, there were 13 attacks and 17 deaths recorded in the five states.

Meanwhile, in January, February and March, the first three months of 2021 and the first set of months after ESN was launched, the number of violent attacks surged and death figures spiked.

The south-east region recorded 54 attacks, representing a 59 percent leap, and 222 deaths, which is a 344 percent rise in death rate.

This figures excludes violent incidents across the five states in the month of April such as the attack on the police command headquarters and correctional facility in Imo.

UPSURGE IN ATTACKS AGAINST SECURITY OPERATIVES

A major development since the launch of IPOB’s security outfit is the spike in attacks against police officers.

On March 31, three police officers were killed when gunmen attacked Chukwuma Soludo, former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), in Anambra.

About two weeks ago, three policemen and four naval officers were said to have been killed during separate attacks by gunmen.

In February, suspected hoodlums attacked Umuoba police station in Isiala Ngwa north local government area of Abia state, setting it ablaze and burning down vehicles in the premises.

Frank Mba, force public relations officer, said two officers — Vincent Gonze, an assistant superintendent of police, and Emmanuel Okoronkwo, a sergeant — died as a result of the attack.

On Tuesday, another police station in Imo state was set ablaze by gunmen — this was the second attack on a police facility in two days.

TheCable understands that police officers took to their heels when the station was invaded by the gunmen who also freed detained persons at the police facility.

The attack on the police station came hours after Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo visited the state for an assessment of the damage done during a previous attack.

IPOB: VIOLENCE NOT PART OF OUR CULTURE

Amid allegations levelled against IPOB over the criminal attacks in the south-east, IPOB spokesman said it is not in the group’s “mandate” to perpetrate such crimes.

In a statement, Powerful said the information linking the group or its security outfit to attacks in the region is fallacious.

The group denied the attack against security operatives, saying IPOB, which has been outlawed as a terrorist organisation, was “formed on the principle of peace and we are still in it”.

“IPOB and ESN were not involved in the attack in Owerri Imo State, and the recent attack on Onitsha Owerri road at Ukwuorji junction. It is not our mandate to attack security personnel or prison facilities,” he said.

“Unknown gunmen is a different people which we don’t know them and they not IPOB or ESN security outfit.”


Cheap propaganda and a reverse psychological warfare cannot buy Nigeria a time of reprieve. Nigerian paramilitary units have killed Igbo youths one too many. Nigerian government has unleashed terror on Igboland though Fulani herdsmen so the people of Igbo and good friends will turn against ESN. However there efforts seemed to fall on bare face. It was alleged governor of Eboneyi State , Umahi was seen wiping and causing the Fulani herdsmen. It was alleged Umahi have regretted ever holding brief for Caliphates and jihadists from the northern region of Nigeria. I guess Nigeria has not seen anything yet.

This is a very detailed data that shows clearly what we have been saying, that ESN is a terrorist organization that is causing more problems than it is solving in igboland. All igbos of good conscience should therefore reject this band of criminals and take back their region before it is turned into a wasteland and warzone by these ESN bandits.
