The former Governor of Abia state, Theodore Orji has sent some strong messages hours after members of the Indigenous people of Biafra/ Eastern security network were attacked by the military.
Yesterday, the troops of the Nigerian army stormed Oru East local government in Imo state and had a gun battle with members of the eastern security network. While this sad report took place, a commanding officer of the Indigenous people of Biafra “Ikonso” and other members were shot dead.
Theodore Orji who was the immediate past Governor of Abia state urged the Southeast Governors to leave the members of the eastern security network and focus on the protection of it’s people. According to Vanguard Newspapers, he said “What I want is something that will protect our lives and properties”. He added that people are being killed everyday, therefore the Southeast Governors should defend their people instead of fighting with ESN, their members have pledged to be loyal to Nnamdi Kanu.
The sudden attack on members of the eastern security network must be commended because their members have carried out several crimes in the region. However, I’ll use this opportunity to let the army know that they can do the same to Boko Haram terrorists and bandits. What are your thoughts about this?
