The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Tuesday, alleged that the Department of State Services, DSS, is plotting to recruit 5000 youths into its armed militia, the Eastern Security Network, ESN.

IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, made the claim while distancing the group from the planned fundraiser for ESN.

Powerful said DSS and its accomplices are behind the alleged fundraiser for ESN and not IPOB.

He stated this in a statement issued to mark the one year anniversary of ESN formation by its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Powerful commended ESN for protecting residents of the Southeast from armed herders in the past year.

According to Powerful: “We are the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU. We most sincerely commend the gallantry of the men of Eastern Security Network ESN for the resolute defence of our ancestral land in the last one year of its inauguration.

“We commend them for staking their lives for the protection and security of our mothers, wives and sisters. Since they came on board, the murderous activities of Fulani jihadists masquerading as herdsmen have been put on check across Biafra land although there are still pockets of occasional attacks by these vampires.

“Nevertheless, IPOB worldwide is very appreciative of the ESN operatives for their gallantry and avowed commitment in protecting our land. Bravo on your one year anniversary!

“Your success story in the last one year has sent shock waves down the spine of our detractors and saboteurs. Biafrans home and abroad are very proud of you.

“Our attention has also been drawn to the laughable and disgraceful claims and appeals from those who are being used to sabotage Biafra restoration efforts of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU and IPOB leadership.

“It’s clear to all that our Leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU inaugurated ESN on the 12th of December 2021 without these saboteurs now claiming what they did not do. Regrettably, those who didn’t play any role in the formation of ESN, want to take credit for what they neither knew the process of its formation nor played any role thereof.

“Today they are calling for the launching of funds to create another ESN in Biafraland. We are calling on Biafrans, both home and in the diaspora, to be very wary of and shun the planned fundraising event which is a ploy by those working for the zoo politicians and the DSS to purportedly recruit 5000 youths into ESN. This is another ploy to deceive our people and make them believe they are in charge of ESN in Biafraland.

“We want to assure Biafrans that ESN leadership is firmly under the control of those our leader entrusted the responsibility into their hands. We will not allow saboteurs to create fake ESN to confuse and bring harm to our people.”
