Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)’s Eastern Security Network, ESN, has allegedly threatened to attack Ukwulu Community in Dunukofia LGA of Anambra State over disobedience.
The community woke up on Sunday morning to see a pasted letter allegedly from ESN warning the community to be Monday’s sit-at-home order or face the consequences.
A source told Daily Post that the letter was pasted on a part of the community warning that the ESN was keeping a close eye on IPOB.
The notice pasted on a part of the community, by persons alleged to be ESN operatives, read: “Respect yourself Ukwulu about sit-at-home, to avoid crying had I known. We are watching you since, and you people are disobeying us because of dead Nigeria.
“From Monday upwards, disobey us again and have yourself (sic) blamed. ESN is coming for you.”
Reacting, the Anambra Police Command spokesperson, DSP Tochukwu Ikenganyia disclosed that the command has deployed operatives to the community.
He said: “The Commissioner of Police, CP Encheng Eworo, has deployed police reinforcement team to Ukwulu Community, and urges the residents to help the police with credible information aimed at identifying the bad elements among them.
“The CP calls for calm while thanking the members of the public and the community for prompt circulation and calling the attention of the Police and other security agencies.”
Naija News reports that IPOB had insisted that it had suspended the Monday’s sit-at-home declared to protest the continued detention of it’s leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
This online newspaper reports that this has not put an end to attacks on individuals who come out to carry out their daily activities on Mondays.
