The Governor of Ebonyi State and the Chairman of the South-East Governors forum David Umahi, has described the Eastern Security Network (ESN), as bandits.
Umahi while speaking with Channels TV, stressed that the region’s governors would not allow such illegality in the Southeast.
“And so, we won’t allow people to take the laws into their hands by killing cows and killing people. But I have to tell you that herders/farmers’ conflicts are not the only security challenges we have in South-East, we have the issue of kidnapping.
“And of late, we have bandits that are now doing a lot of evil and saying they are Eastern Security Network.
“They commit a lot of crime and say they are IPOB, and later IPOB will come out and say we had no hand in this, we had no hand in that.”
This is coming after ESN warned Igbo Youths against joining the newly established South-East security called Ebube Agu.
