0 2,315

The vigilante arm of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Eastern Security Network (ESN) has clashed with some illegally armed cattle rearers in the Southeast.

Following the Grazing law prohibiting the movement of cattle and grazing or rearing of cows across five states of the Eastern part of Nigeria.

Video footage shared by the media unit of IPOB and sighted by our newsdesk indicates a fierce gun confrontation between men of ESN and the armed rampaging Herders.

Though, the agitators led by the embattled Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB has since commended the force unit for their resilience in implementing the grazing law.

Kanu had two years ago launched the armed wing to protect some communities in the Southeast posed with the killing, kidnapping, and rapping of farmers, mainly in rural areas.

The gunbattle appears to have left some of the Headers suspected to be Fulani Herdsmen, with severe bullet injury and loss of cows.

The Herdsmen held at Lokpanta are said to operate within Isiukwuato, Umunneochi, Isuochi Okigwe axis
