IPOB Allegedly Kills Military Informant That Exposed ESN Commander, Ikonso


A man alleged to have been an informant used by the Nigerian Army to give away the late commander of the Indigenous People of Biafra’s Eastern Security Network (ESN), Ikonso Don, has been killed.

It will be recalled that Ikonso was killed in Imo State during a joint operation by security forces comprising the Nigeria Police Force and their counterparts from the Nigerian Army and Department of State Services (DSS).

As reported by Naija News, Commander Ikonso was killed during the gun battle between security operatives and the insurgents while six of his fighters were also arrested.

The encounter happened in Awomama Village Oru East LGA of Imo State.

In a revenge attack, gunmen gunned down the victim, whose name had yet to be ascertained, in a village between Imo and Anambra states, where he was believed to be hiding.

“The victim is alleged to be the informant the military and the police used in getting Ikonso’s location and in killing him. Some said the informant was also a member of the ESN but others said he was a former IPOB member, renounced them and came to the village to hide. But he has now been killed,” a source told SaharaReporters.
