The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has labelled those behind the formation of Ebube Agu security network as failures.
It insisted that the initiators of Ebube Agu failed to act when the people needed them for protection, rather, they waited for instructions from the Caliphate.
The group in a statement by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful said, “We know their mission: the outfit will be an extension of the Nigeria security agencies to spy on our gallant Eastern Security Network, ESN, and pro-Biafra groups.
The so-called EBUBEAGU will be infiltrated by thugs and saboturers to hunt ESN and IPOB members. They want to fight us using our own people. But we are smarter. We are miles ahead of their game plan.
“Coming at a time IPOB already has the Eastern Nigeria Security Network,ESN, there seems to be a lot of concerns about how Ebube Agu would work side by side with ESN… IPOB members and ESN operatives can’t work side by side with any other group that does not know how we operate.”
While describing Ebube Agu as a suspect, IPOB said it can never operate together or co-exist with the newly formed security network, insisting that one must give way for the other.
It added, “We can never trust any outfit formed by our saboturer governors for the security and defense of our land.
Why are they suddenly realising that a regional security outfit should be set up for the defense of South East after foot-draging for many months. These governors who can sacrifice the collective interest of Ndigbo on the altar of their political future cannot be trusted. They are the worst set of Igbo leaders ever seen. They don’t have the interest of the masses at heart.
“Why have they been quiet over the atrocities of Fulani herdsmen in South East all along if they truly care for the people? They are political merchants whose interest is only about political office at all cost. Why haven’t they been courageous enough to implement ban of open grazing like Gov. Otorm of Benue is doing?
So, there is no way you will expect the brain child of this set of people to be in the best interest of the masses. Therefore, we can’t work together with their brainchild. Period!
“But let me quickly remind them that if their intention is to use their abstract EBUBEAGU to spy and hunt down ESN and IPOB, they won’t succed. That alone will bring their own end because IPOB and ESN will moblize our people to ensure that they meet their waterloo.
“We pity those they are going to recruit into the EBUBEAGU outfit. They should be prepared to meet their ancestors soon if their mission is to spy on ESN. We assure them that they will certainly see ESN in the bush but will not return to tell the story! We don’t care to know who they may be.”
iPOB described the action of the governors as belated saying that it may not likely achieve desired goals as the people have since embraced ESN which came to rescue them when it counted most.
According to the grto make it clear that IPOB and ESN is not for Ndigbo alone but for all the nationalities in the entire Biafra region. Our mandate is to provide protection and defense for the entire Biafra region.
