Human rights activist, Aisha Yesufu, has condemned the alleged chasing out of Fulani herdsmen and killing of cows by men of the Eastern Security Network, ESN.
The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, had shared the invasion of ESN at the camp of herdsmen in Isiukwuato, Abia State.
The security operatives in a video shared by Kanu were seen burning houses and cows allegedly belonging to the Fulani herdsmen.
Kanu captioned the video shared on his Facebook page, “Video of men at work last night across all the towns and villages of the old Bende Division, especially Isiukwuato.”
“ESN has commenced the combing of parts of Isiukwuato forests last night and engagement with the enemy is ongoing and will continue until they no longer present a threat to our communities along that axis.”
The co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls movement in her reaction described the development as highly unacceptable, warning that no one has a monopoly of violence.
“This is absolutely not acceptable. We cannot have security outfits taking laws into their hands & maiming, killing & destroying properties. This is not acceptable.”
“We must always remember no one has a monopoly of violence and intolerance and we can all be mad.
Let the law guide us!”
Naija News had earlier reported that Kanu launched the ESN in December 2020, he noted that security network was meant to protect the Southeast from marauding herdsmen and other criminal elements.
He said the security outfit was exactly the same as Amotekun, the Southwest security outfit.
