The Eastern Security Network reportedly invaded the camp of Fulani herdsmen in Isiukwuato Local Government Area in Abia State, chasing them away and killing dozens of their cows.
The Eastern Security Network, a security agency primarily made up of male and female volunteers from the region, is tasked with safeguarding and fishing for robbers, rapists, kidnappers and killers who terrorize rural areas, mainly farmers, women and their daughters.
Over the years, Fulani herdsmen have been accused of killing local people in South-East Region, raping women and slitting farmers’ throats in their farmland, acts which led to the formation of Eastern Security Network by Nnamdi Kanu of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
Kanu sharing the Video of the development said: “Video of Men at work last night across all the towns and villages of the old Bende Division especially Isiukwuato.”
“#ESN has commenced the combing of parts of Isiukwuato forests last night and engagement with the enemy is ongoing and will continue until they no longer present a threat to our communities along that axis.”
“Our intel so far has revealed that those terrorising Isiukwuato are rogue elements in the Nigerian Army & Police who pass on their victims to Fulani Killer Herdsmen. #ESN shall find and neutralise these murderers and kidnappers in the coming days, be rest assured.’
Nnamdi Kanu had also queried the land freely given to Fulani herdsmen in Abia State.
He said: “Senator Orji Uzor Kalu the former Abia State governor a few years ago gave out a sizeable chunk of Igboland at Lopka for FREE to those we now know to be Fulani killer herdsmen.”
“We are not in any way questioning the validity of this singular treacherous transaction but what we are demanding from the Senator is to please kindly tell us where the boundaries of this illegal settlement are.’
“It would be in the interest of peaceful coexistence of all parties concerned were he Senator Orji Uzor Kalu to, as a matter of urgency, publish the original survey plan of the size and dimension of the acreage he gave to his Fulani friends because the settlement continues to expand at an alarming rate to the detriment of surrounding villages.’’
“Families have lost and continue to lose their ancestral lands to the occupants of this Fulani colony in Igboland. All enquiries directed at the Abia State Ministry of Lands have gone unanswered.”
“Also it would be helpful if Senator Orji Uzor Kalu can confirm for the world that such land for free scheme also exist in Sokoto State for the benefit of Easterners.”
