Fulani herdsmen fled on Saturday when the Eastern Security Network (ESN), repelled their attack on a community in Enugu State.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) which confirmed the incident through its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, said:
“We are the Indigenous People of Biafra under the command and leadership of our liberator and prophet Mazi Nnamdi KANU. We wish to reiterate that the mandate of Eastern Security Network, ESN is to pursue fulani terrorists, bandits and killer herdsmen hiding in the bushes and forests of Biafraland. ESN was created to ensure these blood suckers are not allowed any breeding space in Biafra land. This security outfit has been living up to its responsibily, and Biafrans home and in the Diaspora are very proud of our gallant men and women serving in ESN.
“The enemies and their sponsors thought they could take us unawares but unfortunately for them our gallant ESN operatives keep vigil over the entire Biafra land 24 hours.
“While election in Anambra State was going on the enemies deployed terrorists disguising as herdsmen to Enugu State to attack unsuspecting Biafrans but the vigilance of our ESN operatives paid off as these agents of death and sorrow were repelled.
“No matter how hard they try we will not allow any inch of Biafra land to be invaded by terrorists again. Never again shall ESN and IPOB allow Biafran women and girls to be raped by uncircumcised terrorists. We shall continue to defend our ancestral land no matter the price!
“We warn the sponsors of these jihadists and their foot soldiers to stop wasting their time because no part of Biafra land will be occupied by terrorists.
“We again, call on the Fulani-controlled Federal Government of Nigeria to organize referendum for Biafra people to decide on whether or not they want to continue to belong to Nigeria or have their own country. The forced marriage by Britain can no longer work. Biafrans and tired of staying together with mass murderers. We can’t continue to live in a country where the lives of our people have no values. We will no longer belong to a country where cows are valued above human lives. We want to stay on our own where we can guarantee the lives and safety of our people.
“We assure Biafrans that ESN operatives will continue to stand on the watch tower since the hypocritical NIGERIA security agents have refused to protect our people against Fulani killer squad masquerading as herdsmen.”
