Yet Another Setback For Ebubeage As World Igbo Congress throws Weight Behind ESN

The Nigerian Senate on Monday added its voice to the calls for financial autonomy for state judiciaries, declaring that it is non-negotiable.

The World Igbo Congress {WIC} has rejected the security outfit recently launched by the Governors of South-East states, code-named Ebubeagu, advising the governors to support and strengthen the Eastern Security Network {ESN}, established by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra {IPOB}

The rejection came as a result of a decision by the Chairman, Board of Directors, Prof. Anthony Ejiofor, and the executive members of WIC.

The WIC spokesman, Basil Onwukwe while advising the governors to support the ESN, urged them not to allow themselves to be used as tools in the hands of the Fulani ethnic group who have vowed to conquer Nigeria.

He said: “How do you expect the same people whose kith and kin hold the Sword of Damocles over our heads to be our defenders? That is antithetical. Governors beware of the Trojan horse.

“Considering the foregoing, WIC rejects the Ebubeagu security outfit, following the circumstances surrounding the announcement after the bulge claim that ESN is involved in the prison break in Owerri, without evidence.”

The WIC further called for a genuine interest in the security of life and property in the South-East region.

“WIC will not hold apologies in protecting our homeland when the national security operatives have failed to prosecute a captured Fulani bandit. More so, it is an abdication of our inalienable rights to self-preservation.

“The southeast governors need to revitalise their justice departments and begin to prosecute violators of the open grazing law, by enforcing the laws in their book. It will help in checking the marauding Fulani herdsmen,” Onwukwe added.
