Barely 24 hours after Ikonso’s death, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced that a new commander whom they declined to make his name public has taken over command after he emerged as the leader of the Eastern Security Network (ESN).
The new ESN (is the security arm of the IPOB) commander emerged on Sunday.
A tactical team of the Nigeria Police, Nigerian Army, and Department of State Services (DSS), in a joint operation early Saturday, stormed the operational headquarters of the ESN in Awomama, Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State, killing Ikonso and six members of the group.
Disclosing this when he appeared on Channels Tv, Sunday Politics, IPOB Secretary, Emma Powerful also denied ESN’s involvement of yesterday’s attack on Hope Uzodinma’s house.
“ESN are not the ones that attacked Uzodinma’s house. They cannot come for an operation and tell you they are ESN.
When asked to explain the groups operational activities, he opined: We pursue Fulani herdsmen from the region”.
