Discharge Your Duty Now Or Eastern Security Network Will Storm Southern Benue — IPOB Tells Ortom



The unabated complicity of the Nigerian military and the Fulani killer cattle herders in their siege against Igbo communities in Southern part of Benue State, has reached it's crescendo and can no longer be tolerated. The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has in it's Press Release dated Friday 5th March 2021, and duly signed by it's Media /Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, vowed that the operatives of Eastern Security Network (ESN), will swiftly respond should the Executive Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, fails to give protection to Benue indigenous land owners. The released press statement may have been put together due to the recent unwarranted arrest of one of the Chiefs of Atolaga community amongst others, in Ado local government area. The arrest was allegedly connected to the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), within the locality. Reports have it that Fulani herdsmen have ceaselessly been terrorizing the indigenous inhabitants and when the people arose to throw up a challenge, the Nigerian security agencies effortlessly take to arresting innocent, law abiding community and youth leaders of the area.

It is therefore important to bring to the notice of Governor Samuel Ortom that the entirety of Southern Benue would boil should the operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), eventually arrive the State. Needless stating the fact that there exists high concentration of Igbo communities in Ado, Ogbadibo, Okpokwu and Oju local government areas of the state, known as "Umuezeokeoha People". Investigations into the plight of these people in the hands of Benue State Government, reveal that they have suffered decades of blatant neglect on security related policies, infrastructural development and economic protection. Few years past, a native of Umuezeokeoha visited Benue State University, Makurdi, to seek admission into the institution. The registrar told him verbatim that he should journey to Ebonyi State for such because Benue indigenes do not bear such Igbo names as his.

Although, Umuezeokeoha community residing South of Benue, could have suffered high degrees of economic and infrastructural security neglect well before the arrival of Eastern Security Network but presently, same security neglect would no longer be tolerated by Biafrans. As a result of the menace of the Fulani killer herdsmen and the complicit intimidation drive of the Nigerian armed forces within the area, operatives of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), will soon arrive those Igbo communities for sanitization. If Governor Samuel Ortom does not however wish to experience what Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State experienced a couple of weeks ago, he then should immediately stem this imminent tide of rising insecurity and police victimization policy against the inhabiting indigenous land owners.

Ambushment of Eastern Security Operatives by the Nigerian Armed Forces while on just missions like what will soon be  witnessed in Southern Benue, will only result in intentional suicidal outcome using Orlu experience in Imo State as a case study. Governor Samuel Ortom has before him, two glaring choices pertaining this matter as pointedly presented by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). One is to courageously and immediately step into the plight of these aforementioned Igbo communities with the sole policy intent of averting the arrival of Eastern Security Network (ESN) and rightly doing the needful or dig himself into complicity and docility regarding this same plight of the people. He will most assuredly witness the monstrous arrival and activities of the operatives of Eastern Security Network (ESN) in his State.
