President Muhammadu Buhari has no moral right to attack the Eastern Security Network (ESN).
This is according to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who said he created the militia to combat crime in the South-East.
He said ESN wouldn’t be necessary if the president and governors carried out their primary duty of protecting lives and property.
“When your president does not prosecute terrorists but pardons and gives them scholarships; when your governors negotiate with and bandits and pay them;
“When your security agencies rehabilitate terrorists and induct them in your army. They lose the moral right to traduce ESN. We move!”.
Kanu’s tweeted followed ESN’s attacks on Fulani herdsmen whom they accuse of vandalising farms and kidnapping people in Abia State.
It also followed unconstitutional moves by Yoruba activist Sunday Igboho to expel Fulani settlers from the South-West. Igboho and his supporters blame the government for failing to protect citizens from the allegedly criminal activities of Fulani herdsmen.
