Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has stated that members of the Eastern Security Network are not the unknown gunmen who go about killing innocent persons in the South-East.
Recall that the activities of the unknown gunmen in recent months increased causing loss of lives.
The gunmen have also killed scores of security operatives while government facilities including police stations and Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC offices in the Southeast and some parts of South-South have been destroyed.
While the police and other security agencies have consistently accused the IPOB and the ESN of being the unknown gunmen, Kanu, leader of the group has repeatedly claimed his loyalists are not responsible for the attacks.
In a tweet on his official Twitter handle on Wednesday the Biafra freedom fighter said the accusation by the government was a plot to justify “genocide attacks currently going on in the region”.
The tweet reads, “It’s pathetic that the Nigerian government & its security forces are now spreading the LIE that “IPOB Killed 128 Military, Police Personnel”.
“This lie is aimed at justifying the GENOCIDE that is currently underway in #SoutheastNigeria. Again, IPOB & ESN are not unknown gunmen”.
