The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Tuesday, warned Igbo youths against joining the security outfit which was recently launched by South-East Governors.
Effiezy had earlier reported that governors from the east region launched ‘Ebubu Agu’ to assist in tackling the rising insecurity in the region.
Meanwhile, IPOB had already formed the Eastern Security Network which has been having repeated clashes with the military and the Police.
The spokesman of the group, Emma Powerful, warned that “any person that joins EBUBEAGU to spy Eastern Security Network should be prepared to join his ancestors”.
“We, therefore, warn our youths to have nothing to do with the so-called Ebubeagu security outfit which was ostensibly formed to sabotage IPOB and ESN. Anyone who neglects this warning and thinks he can hide under the cloak of EBUBEAGU to spy on ESN should be prepared to join his ancestors.”
“The protection of all Biafrans is our priority and we are prepared to sacrifice anything to achieve this. We are aware of plans to decimate indigenous tribes in Nigeria.”
“We are also aware of the federal government’s tacit support for this evil agenda. But IPOB and ESN promise them that no inch of our land will be given to Fulani herdsmen in the East,” he said.
IPOB described the action of the governor as an unnecessary waste of resources, faulting the manner in which it was formed.
