IPOB,ESN know nothing about the killing of Gulak – MNK

The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, says the untenable allegation by the security agencies that IPOB was responsible for the assassination of former presidential aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak on his way to Sam Mbakwe Airport Owerri Imo State cannot be farther from the truth. The rebutal to the police allegations was contained in a press release signed by Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Mr Emma Powerful. "We therefore state without equivocations that IPOB knows nothing about the said assassination. In the first place, what threat did the late Gulak constitute to our cause to warrant his elimination?

Nnamdi Kanu mocks Nigerian Army for claiming to have arrested ESN’s deputy commander

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).

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.

Nnamdi Kanu calls Aisha Yesufu a ‘talkative’ over Eastern Security Network, herdsmen fiasco in Abia

The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has fired back at the co-convener of the #BringBackOurGirls movement, Aisha Yesufu, after she condemned the Eastern Security Network (ESN) for chasing out herdsmen from Isiukwuato local government area of Abia State on Saturday. Kanu had posted on his Facebook page a video of how the security outfit invaded the herdsmen enclave, burnt their houses, and killed scores of cattle left behind by the fleeing herders. The frontline activist took to her Twitter handle and condemned the act. Yesufu said such action was not only condemnable and unacceptable but one that called for caution. “This is absolutely not acceptable. We cannot have security outfits taking laws into their own hands, maiming, killing...
