Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has vowed that the group would resist men of the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, in the Southeast.
Kanu made the remark while accusing the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team led by DCP Abba Kyari of killing cultists and tagging them Eastern Security Network, ESN, operatives.
The IPOB leader maintained that ESN operatives were not cultists and would never be killed.
Kanu, who spoke through the Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, said the group would not tolerate the victimization of Igbo youths by security agents.
Kanu accused Abba Kyari and his men of invading and burning down some communities in Imo State.
In a statement by Powerful, Kanu said: “It is unfortunate that DCP Abba Kyari and co are killing cult members and forcing them to answer ESN, the man they are parading as ESN is not our member and can never be.
“Two months ago the two groups of cultists fought and killed each other and burnt two members to ashes but unfortunately one of them was caught at Owerri by Abba Kyari and his group and they tagged him ESN and unknown gunman.
“Nigerian security agencies led by DCP Abba Kyari have invaded three communities in Mbaitoli LGA in Imo State and burnt their properties worth millions of naira dollars.”
The IPOB leader insisted that ESN are stationed in Southeast forests in their fight against “terrorists and killer herdsmen.”
He added: “These atrocities have been going on for too long but we won’t tolerate it anymore.
“We promise them hell for this cowardly act of victimizing innocent Igbo youths.”
