The Indigenous People of Biafra Eastern Security Network (ESN) has reportedly mobilized into forests in Eleme LGA of Rivers State to prevent herdsmen from establishing settlements in the areas.
Reports states that tension had risen in the Agbonchia community in the Eleme LGA after Fulani herdsmen invaded the area, destroying farmlands, assaulting the residents and reportedly raping women.
Nnamdi Kanu’s Eastern Security Network Storm Rivers To Flush Herdsmen
Recall that residents had protested last Friday to draw the attention of Governor Nyesom Wike and the federal government to the community which is presently under herdsmen’s siege.
Biafra Activist, Mr Nnamdi Kanu, disclosed that he had directed ESN operatives to flush out Fulani herdsmen.
Kanu’s statement read in part; “In response to the cries and yearnings of our terrified mothers in Eleme Igweocha in Rivers State, I have this evening instructed the High Command of Eastern Security Network to move into the area forth and to rid the farmers of Fulani terror herdsmen,”
SaharaReporters gathered from a source that the community forests were a no-go area at the moment, as residents had been asked to vacate the farms until the herdsmen had been cleared.
“In order not to be caught in the crossfire, we are avoiding the farms for now. When the Fulani have been sent away, everyone will return. Since the Rivers State government and the security agencies do not want to be responsible, we have no option but to rely on the ESN,” the source stated.
