The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said that henceforth, Governor Hope Uzodinma of I’m State will no longer have peace for the killing of the state commander of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), Ikonso.
The ESN commander was shut and killed Saturday morning by a combined effort of the police and other sister organizations. Six other members of the outfit we’re also killed during the operation.
They were killed following an operation at Awomanma in Oru East local government area of the state.
IPOB said the death of the ESN membrrs was masterminded by governor Uzodinma, adding that he has therefore murdered sleep and no longer have peace in the state.
In a statement signed by its spokesman Emma Powerful, IPOB said, “The killing of the heroic innocent Biafrans protecting our communities and towns from Fulani terrorists herdsmen masquerading as cattle herders in cold blood is very painful” and threatened that the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, and all those who had a hand in “this wickedness will pay dearly”.
The statement said- “Uzodinma decided to kill Ikonso because he refused his offer to head Ebubeagu ghost security outfit formed by South East governors. Uzodinma has tried but without success to lure ESN operatives into Ebubeagu. He had made irresistible offers to them which were turned down, hence his resorting to elimination of these patriotic heroes who vowed never to betray Biafra.
“Hope Uzodinma sent a lot of emissaries to beg Ikonso and other ESN officers to join Ebubeagu security outfit. So, because of their refusal to betray Biafra agitation and our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the hopeless governor mobilized joint security forces to attack them today.
“Hope Uzodinma has murdered sleep, so he should be ready to stay awake! Fulani terrorists pretending as cattle sellers in Enugu destroyed Police van and attacked government officials on lawful duty with AK-47 but no Army, police or DSS attacked them till now.
“But ESN operatives defending our communities against the terrorists are being hunted like games every day. The world has kept quiet over this atrocity until we begin our own madness,” IPOB said.
