Ikonso: Nnamdi Kanu And The End Of ESN by AbaLion: 12:21am On Apr 25, 2021
The killing of ESN Commander in the heart of the operational base of ESN in Imo has not only exposed the tactical weakness of ESN Operatives but also the tactical daftness of Nnamdi Kanu as a leader.

The theatre of ESN which is supposed to be impenetrable given how sensitive as the operational and tactical base of the zone, was torn down by Nigeria security forces and the Commander, Ikonso shot down to his boxer with his charmed vest hanging helplessly around his neck.
If your most fortified camp could be broken down fairly easily, then you are Finished!

The Nigerian security are henceforth in possession of some sensitive and substantial details of ESN. Raids including gadgets and sensitive materials linkng ESN networking and other top commanders & staffs and operational information would have been obtained. There's no way a top commander, much less a deputy to Kanu wouldn't have some top secret details in his possession. Everything is now pretty much in the hands of Nigeria Army.

The reason why Nigeria security forces have been having tougher times defeating Bokoharam, Bandits & fulani herdmen is because their operational camps have never been penetrated by the security agencies. What we do witness are occassional random arrests of terrorists & bandits with little or nothing to show.

Going into a terrorist camp is a fight to finish as the case of Idris Deby paying the ultimate price. ESN do not have what it takes to defend its most fortified territory. Although, they could throw back some few punches but would later buck even before the fight began.

A closer look at the arms and ammunition recovered from Ikonso's camp shows the unpreparedness and scantily stocked the so called ESN, other than an empty barrel. With those little stock of arms, they hardly could go a 6 hour shooting spree with the the security agencies. Compare with the fully armed bandits hobnobbing with Gumi, whose ammunition were displayed with intent. Notwithstanding, the full gallery of their arms & ammunition. They have easy access from Libya, Chad, Mali, Niger through the border.

What access do ESN has? the access to attack random road blocks police officers, get them killed and disposses them of their weapons, at most an organized attacks on police stations where large cache of arms were stolen for more attacks. They are landlocked, they are holed up without the privilege of access like the North, the West or their close neighbors, SS. Little wonder, Nnamdi Kanu was so particular about dismantling all road blocks in the South East so that as much arms would come in so easily and unfettered.

With the Nigerian Army in possession of what would further nail IPOB/ESN in the international community, I expect that British Government and her EU allies will revoke the asylum consideration and may likely align with the Federal Government's proscription of IPOB in the wake of overwhelming criminal evidences linking IPOB activities to terrorism less than 24hours to an attack on a Governor's house. While his house was set ablaze, cars burnt, more unfortunately, two of his security aides were killed.

The perpetrators could not be far fetched from the statement by another South East Governor, Ikpeazu, who stated that Nnamdi Kanu had declared death sentence on All the Governors in the South East.

Nnamdi Kanu has been having a handshake across the Ambazonia region of Southern Cameroon from whence he has been getting handouts on how to carry out series of organized violent attacks on Government institutions. Being a man with much words and very little wisdom, he has no political support which creates a wide gulf from his Ambazonia counterpart, who has the support of the socio-political class.
Nnamdi Kanu would be rat out from his hole because of his vile vituperations, wild imaginations, and tactless misgivings.

If his foot soldiers could penetrate a Governors house, I think Kanu could have made the most of it by deploying intellectual sagacity rather than being a blood thirsty & destructive beast. The absence and otherwise lack of a think-tank among Ipob's hierarchy complements Kanu and his goons as a money hungry cult.

Following this ugly development, it's high time Ohaneze Ndigbo and Elders crawled out with their red caps and walking sticks to make a loud plea to tie down their recalcitrant ipob kids to a chain and passionately disown Kanu with their full chest, otherwise the righteous dwellers might suffer from the impending consequences.

With Nigeria security forces walking into ESN territory and gunned down Kanu's deputy, trust me, Nigeria security have had the upper hand and South East has become a marked territory of the Nigerian Army. Kanu/ESN was having the sole command of the South east but he has now lost it.

your wrong, less than an hour after that guy was killed, Hope uzodinma's house was destroyed.Assuming ESN was responsible, it means that they are very organized. judging from activities in the East, these guys operate in semi-independent cells.
Don't be surprised that the escalation will not take place in imo but another state.
violence can't resolve this issue but rather ,it will worsen it .The federal government has placed ESN in such a position that the can't but respond with force-hence this circle of violence continues. And the SE isn't the NE that the country can afford to boil over.
Any military exchange in the SE will cause very adverse effects all over the country

Lion are you saying that Chad military that delt a big blow on Boko Haram terrorists are weak because the commander of the army and President of Chad was killed ? Did America finished the Taliban because most of their senior commanders was killed ? America is pulling its troops out of Afghanistan having fought and got tired of fighting. I'm in America and proud to say I make my monthly contributions to ESN on time. The last time Mazi Kanu came here we raised over 400.000 dollars withing two weeks. IPOB is a multi million dollars organization if you don't know, and we have a enough resources and manpower to match our enemies. The ammunition we used are locally made by men trained in Israel. There are many things you don't know about IPOB. A lots of Igbo billionaires who a fed up with Nigeria are secretly financing IPOB activities. Now that the get of hell is widely open, stay tuned with the news...

One dirty Molete boy with unwashed boxers with the rare privilege of owning a phone and small data will just crawl out of his decrepit crevice of environmental poverty to chat sh*t grin. In all these your epistural garbage and forced attempts at sounding cognitive and smart, did it ever cross those hollow-brained humpty dumpty skulls of yours whether ESN has a broad chain of command that is more sophisticated and largely covert from public eye? I'm sure the ESN organization wouldn't be so naive to focus all their leadership and conmand structure in just one location in Imo state where the military can easily gain access to through tip offs and other means of intelligence gathering. I suffice it safe and reasonable to say ESN is a loosely organized quasi-military organization with several "unknown" locations that could range from surrounding forest landmarks, hidden operational bases in remote villages, inner cities etc...ESN isn't like ISWAP or other sophisticated cells that have a more centralized operational base or location where all the fighters take orders from, neither does ESN have a structure or hierarchy of leadership or ranks in place. So basically now that Commander Ikonso has been killed and his base neutralized, another "commander" will easily take his place and operate from a more nondescript location this time from which he and his men can attack military/police facilities to wreck more havoc, seize weapons and then melt into thin air like we've seen unfold from the Unknown gunmen attacks.

It's borderline daftness, sheer ignorance and too much consumption of gbegiri, kpomo and algae soup to just conclude this is the end of ESN off one fluke scorecard of "victory" in some remote community in Imo State for the Nigerian security personnels when the actual fighting strength, organizational structure, and logistics of ESN remains relatively unknown. ESN for all we know could have reserve fighters in the Amazonian region and parts of the Niger Delta, with sleeper cells in the Middle belt...

Yeribanza man focus on the filth in your region and worry less about how the East will fare, as long as ESN keep decimating and ridding off the last Fulani vestiges in the East, then they will continue to enjoy the support and good will of the Igbos (covertly or overtly).
@bold.. You now own up to the criminal activities of ESN under the guise of UGM. Fantastic confession.

Do you know the pile of shit that comes out of your head simply defines how intellectually bereft you sound?
Here is a fun fact for you; Kanu is a fugitive who is being represented by a high ranking local commander, a deputy.
A deputy (2nd in command to Kanu) bears the highest authority to his supreme leader. All other cell commanders are answerable to Ikonso who represents Kanu in Nigeria.
With his being killed, his flanks opened & decimated, ESN command can never regroup anylonger. As we speak, Nigeria Army have had access to ESN database in the Southeast. You have handed your enemy a gun to blow up your skull.

Just shut up already. I guess the killing of President Idriss Déby also exposed the tactical weakness and daftness of the Chadian Military that has hitherto effectively kept seasoned terrorists like the ones your puppet masters are fraternizing with in check.

There will always be casualties in any armed conflict. How many of our young men in the army and police get iced by fulani terrorists alias bandits and their Boko Haram colleagues on a daily basis?.

Does that also expose the tactical weakness and daftness of your Military?.

The death of Idris Deby was a massive victory for Bokoharam. If your topmost commander could be less protected, it shows a tactical deficiency.

And you think ESN operatives haven't long figured out the inevitability of these scenarios playing out long before already? What makes you think the ESN members don't have coded means of communication as a preemptive measure against possible events of their communication gadgets and other assets been seized? special codes the military will never decipher or crack? I'm sure ESN are far smarter than your useless security intelligence and have confiscated any possible lead that will implicate them grin

IPOB is a very poor village club whose leader live off members contribution.
Pls, never ever compare Ipob to Taliban, ISIS, Bokoharam, etc. Those groups are super wealthy, they control enormous economic resources and have access to world's top political class. ISIS alone would buy all Southeast region combined and collect change.

The bitter truth is that the Op could be right in many of his opinions. I would like to add that Mazi Kanu needs to change his tactics for now, because the captured Ipob and ESN members would definitely be tortured to spill operational and sensitive secrets. And seeing how a top commander of the group has just been taken out, demoralization might set in for the members. We live to fight another day.

Look here, I will take you seriously when I see you open threads about the evil happening in Nigeria and the way innocent people are getting killed in their farm, their lands and property taken over by the Fulani. I will take you seriously when you condemn the fact that a proud race like Yorubas have refugees in Benin republic. I will take you seriously when you speak up against the continued intentional overuse of power against IPOB members while terrorists and bandits are treated with pats on their backs.

Ogbeni fara ba le, don't let your restive stupidity overtake any shred of intelligence that you've got left grin.

Where and when did I categorically allude that the UGM are ESN? from the excerpt of my post which you rushed to highlight like an idiot on crack, I painted a comparative scenario of how the ESN operations are going to pan out against a more fortified and well armed Nigeria Security architecture on ground, and I simply inferred that LIKE unknown gunmen who operate on a fast and calculated hit and run type attack on security targets, ESN might choose to adopt that tactics if the objective is to exert revenge. Nobody knows who the UGM are including the state governors who have exonerated IPOB/ESN from the UGM escapades... the identity of the UGM is open to speculations and logical deductions at best till you can prove beyond every reasonable doubt that they are for certain ESN members.

Lmfaooooo look at this idiot talking about flanks been open and ESN database blah blah blah, Ogbeni abeg SHUT THE F**K OFF and stop trying too hard cause you sound to embarrassingly shallow right now... which flank is been exposed? is ESN a conventional army fighting on symmetrical fronts like was the case in thr Biafran war? is ESN a standard army fighting in urban war trenches? Oponu no dey embarrass yourself like this nitori olorun grin grin grin.

Lastly, The individual who was killed isn't any second in command to Kanu, he's just a leader of a certain command location that happens to be in Imo state, I don't where you clowns are getting this fabled bullshit narratives that he's second in command, did Kanu come out to acknowledge him as such? ESN is an irregular quasi-military/vigilante force, so anybody with the proven qualities can be a leader in any part of the East where he's base of operation is situated. Nobody except your daft media outlets determined the Ikonso fellow is the second in command in the hierarchy of command.

Stop making a fool of yourself AbaPu**y angry grin
I rather take seriously the foolishness of Emma Powerless than your foolness. His foolishness is far more relevant than the foolishness of an online nobody.
If Emma could declare Uzodinma a target, it therefore means that the life of Ikonso is equal to that of a Governor. That, itself signifies Ikonso up there a 2nd in command to Kanu. Thousands of Ipob militants had since died with Kanu never issued a statement much loud, not even the death of his parents did he place a value on.
Tying to downplay the command span of Ikonso in ESN hierarchy, is like trying to downplay how really dumb you sound.
You talk from a point of emotion, I talk from a point of intelligence. I only engage you to revive some dead cells in your head.
