The Nnamdi Kanu led Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB , has rejected the call for the merging of ESN and Ebube Agu in the South East.
NEWS MAIL NG reports that after the five South East Governors met and announced the creation of a joint security outfit called Ebube Agu, many Igbos called for the merging of the new outfit with IPOB’s Eastern Security Network, ESN.
In a statement released on Monday by Emma Powerful, IPOB’s Spokesman, the organization said the call was unreasonable because darkness and light can not work together.
The statement reads in part: ”We have noted with keen interest, the genuine calls by some eminent Igbos for collaboration between our gallant Eastern Security Network, ESN; and the ghost Ebubeagu security network recently floated by the Southeast governors. We have equally noted similar calls by some self-acclaimed but unreliable Igbo elders and Ohanaeze chieftains.
The statement added that ESN was created due to the failure of the Governors to stand up for the people who were being raped and slaughtered daily.
“But we have a simple question for them all: can light and darkness work together? We all knew the circumstances that gave birth to ESN. It was when the governors woefully failed to stand with the people who were being raped and slaughtered daily by Fulani herdsmen and jihadists that our leader, based on the yearnings by the people established ESN to save the situation. And ever since then, the narrative has changed.“
