The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has launched a regional security outfit to guard and protect the whole Biafra land from the rampaging Fulani herdsmen terrorists and other criminal groups.

In a statement issued by the Media and Public Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB said the outfit would also ensure the safety of the forests and farmlands which terrorists have converted into slaughter grounds and raping fields.

The group said the move followed the failure of the South-East and South-South governors to float a regional security outfit unlike what was obtainable in the South West despite the nation’s worsening insecurity.

The statement read in part, “The sole aim and objective of this newly formed security outfit known as Eastern Security Network is to halt every criminal activity and terrorists attack Biafraland.

“This outfit which is a vigilante group like the Amotekun in the South West and the Miyetti Allah security outfit will ensure the safety of our forests and farmlands which terrorists have converted into slaughter grounds and raping fields.

“Since the South-East and South-South governors have failed to float a regional security outfit unlike their counterparts in the South West despite the worsening insecurity in the country, we have decided not to wait endlessly while our mothers and sisters are continually raped and slaughtered like fowls by terrorists in our land.

” We can’t watch helplessly while those we are agitating to liberate from bondage are gradually being eliminated by terrorists.
