Army Arrests Ikonso’s Second-In-Command During IPOB, ESN Raid In Abia by etokhana: 7:21pm On May 12
The Nigerian Army has said it has arrested the Second-in-Command to the neutralised commander of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Eastern Security Network (ESN) in Aba town in Abia State during the raid.

The army arrested 48-year-old Awurum Eze, a native of Umoneke Nta in the Isiala-Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State.

The Director, Army Public Relations, in a release said, Eze had escaped from his village on May 4 when the operatives of Intelligence Response Team (IRT) stormed his village house in Isiala Mbano where he was hiding.

He said, “The Second-in-Command to the neutralised IPOB/ESN Terrorist leader Ikonso, Awurum Eze, has been arrested by security operatives in Aba, Abia State.

“The 48-year-old Awurum Eze, a native of Umoneke Nta, Isiala-Mbano LGA, Imo State, had on the 4th of May, 2021 escaped when operatives of Intelligence Response Team (IRT) stormed his village house in Isiala Mbano where he was hiding.

“Intensive manhunt was thereafter launched towards tracing and arresting him. He was eventually apprehended on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, in Aba after weeks of unrelenting follow-ups by operatives.

“Awurum Eze is one of the main sponsors of the numerous killings in Imo State and has been on the wanted list of security agents for more than 3 months.

“Many of the arrested IPOB /ESN terrorists had earlier mentioned him as their key sponsor, mastermind and Second-in-Command to the late Ikonso. According to them, amongst all their leaders in Imo State, only Ikonso and Awurum have direct communication link with Nnamdi Kanu. He can be seen in several photographs posing with the fugitive terrorist leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

“Investigation by the combined team of security operatives continues.”

Why are they arresting people defending their homelands from fulani herdsmen?

Fulani men are killing southerners and none was arrested, but for people to move and defend their territories, you arrest and kill them?

It’s now I know why Boko Haram has not been defeated for over a decade.

This people always leave the main issue to fight the periphery.

ESN is hydra-headed!

Cut off one head and more 5 heads will grow.

The Ikonso u took out in IMO, how far? Has it stopped attacks?

This people no just get sense.

Really, how can they authentic that this man is the "second in command"? What difference is this one arrest going to make?

This is very lowly and cheap publicity stunt.

I thought some of you guys claimed ESN and UGM are invisible?

The process na gradual, after picking up the ESN/UGM foot soldiers , there sympathizers would be next
