Nnamdi Kanu warn Obi of Onitsha over formation of counter vigilante group against ESN
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has reacted to the establishment of a counter security outfit in Anambra State by the state Monarch, Obi of Onitsha.
Pictures of a strange internal security group had circulated on social media late last week said to have been formed by Igwe Achebe named Onitsha Ado.
Though Scannews24 is yet to be briefed fully on the agenda even as conspiracy theories keep emerging alleging the group was inaugurated in view to checkmate activities of Eastern Security Network, ESN, in Onitsha and environ.
Series of photos retrieved and sighted by SCANNEWS24 shows a number of youths on black top and trousers with inscribed tinted and branded vehicles.
Reacting via a tweet on Sunday evening ESN Commander, Kanu handed out a strain warning to the Traditional leader not to avail his office to ferment trouble in the state by “Fulani Janjaweed terrorists”.
Consequently, he remarkably advised the action may end in tears both for him and the operators if it upsurges issues.
In his words: “Igwe Achebe, the Obi of Onitsha, MUST not allow his office to be used by #Fulani Janjaweed terrorists in Aso Rock to ferment trouble for #ESN around Onitsha and environs, otherwise it will end in tears for him & his local Miyetti Allah funded vigilante named Onitsha Ado”
However, this has raised a controversy amongst Nigerians describing the move as unnecessary. The majority who commented on the development believed the Monarch is wrongly advised.
They urged leaders in the region to concentrate on flushing out common enemies than allowing the enemies to divide.
Meanwhile, Nnamdi Kanu had deployed volunteered vigilantes to Eleme in Rivers State to fish out criminals reportedly causing havoc in the community.
Residents of the area majorly aged mothers had protested in viral footage over the continued invasion of the farmlands by Fulani Herdsmen.
The aggrieved protestors lamented the destruction of crops and kidnapping activities ongoing within the neighborhood and called the state governor, Nyesom Wike to rescue them.
