A new militant group, ‘Biafran Motherland Warriors’, has emerged in the South-East.
The group is said to operate like the Eastern Security Network (ESN), the armed wing of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), though not much is known about its activities.
It was however gathered that the group operates around Mbaise area in Imo State.
IPOB had claimed that “ESN operatives are wading off the bandits and killer herdsmen in South-East forests and communities.
“Their mandate is to stop the wicked Fulani herdsmen killing, raping of women and ladies, sacking of communities, Fulanisation and Islamisation agenda, and that they have lived up to, even with government hunting them because they are stopping their evil agents of restriction”, IPOB had stated.
