The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has alleged that Fulani jihadists attacked some communities in Enugu State while the Anambra State governorship election was going on.
IPOB disclosed that the attack was, however, repelled by its militia arm, the Eastern Security Network, ESN.
Emma Powerful, spokesman of IPOB, assured people of the Southeast that ESN would not allow Fulani terrorists to occupy the region.
In a statement he issued on Sunday, Powerful said: “While the election in Anambra State was going on the enemies deployed terrorists disguising as herdsmen to Enugu State to attack unsuspecting Biafrans but the vigilance of our ESN operatives paid off as these agents of death and sorrow were repelled.
“The enemies and their sponsors thought they could take us unawares but unfortunately for them, our gallant ESN operatives keep vigil over the entire Biafra land 24 hours.
“No matter how hard they try we will not allow any inch of Biafra land to be invaded by terrorists again. Never again shall ESN and IPOB allow Biafran women and girls to be raped by uncircumcised terrorists. We shall continue to defend our ancestral land no matter the price!
“We warn the sponsors of these jihadists and their foot soldiers to stop wasting their time because no part of Biafra land will be occupied by terrorists.
“We assure Biafrans that ESN operatives will continue to stand on the watchtower since the hypocritical NIGERIA security agents have refused to protect our people against Fulani killer squad masquerading as herdsmen.”
