THE Indigenous People of Biafra on Wednesday warned governors of the South-East geo-political zone, to steer clear from its security outfit, the Eastern Security Network, describing them as were traitors.
The leader of Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign States of Biafra, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, had in a statement, said the ESN would be better managed by governors of the zone under the auspices of South-East Governors’ Forum.
But the outlawed group, in statement signed by its Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, a copy of which was made available to The PUNCH, said it was dangerous for the ESN to be handed over to the governors, describing them as slaves of the northern oligarchies.
The statement read in part, “Uwazuruike is not ashamed of himself by trying to use ESN to cover his atrocities in Biafraland. Uwazuruike was the man who boasted that he had more boys than Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, that should he unleash his boys, no place would contain them.
“We, therefore, challenge Uwazuruike to form his own security outfit and hand over to the South-East and South-South governors. IPOB and its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, are capable of managing ESN to pursue its mandate.
“Uwazuruike thought that IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu are like him that shamelessly sold the future of our unborn generations to the same oppressors he claims to be fighting against just because all he wanted in life was to escape poverty and live in style and opulence. “At least, now he knows they can never be like us. Unlike him, IPOB is a noble family of liberators that cannot be bought or sold to the highest bidder. Neither will we allow earthly material considerations to move us to distraction. Our mission is a very simple one; Restore Biafra. Nothing more, nothing less!”
