S’East govs, IPOB disagree over Ebube Agu

South-East governors and the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, may be on collision course, as the latter has rejected formation of the new security network, code-named EbubeAgu, by the former. IPOB’s rejection of EbubeAgu came as Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, said yesterday that the new security outfit will be backed by law, saying the houses of assembly in the region are working to give it legal teeth.

But IPOB warned Igbo youths to keep their distance from EbubeAgu, if its motive is to spy on pro-Biafra groups. This is even as Ralph Uwazuruike, founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, yesterday threw his weight behind EbubeAgu, saying the Eastern Security Network, ESN, launched by IPOB, remains a “social media network” that has no form of recognition.” Civil Society Organisations, CSOs, also yesterday backed the establishment of regional security networks across the country to provide cover for defenceless Nigerians, but cautioned governors against using them to intimidate perceived enemies.

It will be recalled that South-East governors had on Sunday announced formation of EbubeAgu, saying the regional security network which will be an amalgam of all the vigilante groups in the region, would be headquartered in Enugu.
