Announcing the security outfit, the IPOB leader who referenced Amotekun and Miyetti Allah security outfits, said, it becomes important following the incessant killings across the country, stating that the newly launched security outfit will safeguard the forest and neighborhood in the old eastern region.
Recounting the recent killings by Fulani Herdsmen and bandits across the Northern states, including Benue (Middle Belt), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, warned that on no account should any sitting governor or any Nigerian government official doubt the resolve of IPOB to secure the entirety of South East and South South against the invading Fulani Herdsmen.

He said; “the aim of launching Eastern Security Network (ESN) is to protect lives and properties and to further ensure terrorists who had made their way into Nigeria, doesn’t have liberty to dwell in Biafra land.
“We are letting them know that our land is under occupation. We are presenting to the world our line of defense. We are determined and we will defend our land! What we are doing is no different from Amotekun or Miyetti Allah,” IPOB leader stated.
