The members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra IPOB, has warned Igbo Youths against joining the newly established south-east security outfit Ebube Agu.
The group stated this a communique signed by the media and publicity secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, and made available to newsmen in Awka, on Tuesday,
According to IPOB the new security outfit was set up to fulfill all righteousness, or to spy on its own security network, the ESN to curry favour from “their Fulani slave masters.”
The group also stated that Ebubeagu security outfit was strictly formed to sabotage IPOB and Eastern Security Network (ESN) because it was an abstract security outfit, just as it described the new group as a mockery formed without anything on the ground.
For that reason, the group said, youths from the South-East must shun it, adding that “anyone who neglects this warning and thinks he can hide under the cloak of Ebubeagu to spy on ESN should be prepared to join his ancestors.”
The statement reads in part:
“It has come to the attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), under the command and leadership of our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, that South-East governors have shamefully and belatedly announced the formation of an abstract security outfit called Ebubeagu to secure the zone from Fulani terrorist herdsmen they allotted our ancestral lands to.
“What a mockery the puppets have made of themselves in their usual quest to please their slavemasters! How can you launch a security outfit without first assembling the personnel and equipping them? When Amotekun was formed, it was not abstract, the personnel and their equipment were handy.
“When our leader floated the gallant Eastern Security Network (ESN), the men were on the ground. How then did South-East traitors called governors announce a security outfit without any personnel or were they under any pressure to hurriedly make the announcement after years of footdragging and deceit?
“However, whether or not they were under any influence, we want to remind these bunch of caliphate slaves that there is no need for them to form another security outfit in our land since we have our formidable ESN.
