Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Friday mocked the Nigerian Army for claiming to have arrested the deputy commander of the group’s Eastern Security Network (ESN).
It could be recalled that the Director of Army Public Relations, Brig. Gen. Mohammed Yerima, had on Wednesday claimed that troops arrested one Awurum Eze, who he described as the second in command to the slain ESN leader, Ikonso.
In a tweet, the IPOB leader reacted to the claim on his Twitter handle, shared photos he took with prominent leaders in the South-East and wondered if they were also ESN commanders for posing for a photograph with him.
He wrote: “Since standing beside or taking a photo with me makes you an #ESN deputy commander, perhaps the very preeminent & foremost constitutional lawyer, Prof. Nwabueze, @DaveUmahi, & Gov. Ugwuanyi are all #ESN deputy commanders. @HQNigerianArmy exhibiting their usual idiocy. #ZOO.”
