On the 15th of January 1970, the Biafran troops surrendered to the Nigerian army and plead for one Nigeria, they joined the moving cargo to build a strong nation bonded by unity and peace. Today, IPOB group through its security outfit, ESN, has become a threat to the unity of Nigeria.
The Eastern Security Network was formed by the self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, he fashioned the group in a way that makes it difficult to track down. Kanu had stated earlier that the ESN group won’t cause any problems but going by the way things are happening now, the Eastern Security Network needs to be dissolved.
Series of complaints about the Eastern Security Network has emerged following their operation in the Eastern part of Nigeria. They have launched attacks on both the Army and police officers which amounts to the death of many security operatives. The ESN might appear unstoppable now, but they might cease to exist if the Nigerian army takes this decision.
If the Army decides to launch “Operation Python Dance” in the five eastern states, that will be the end of the Eastern Security Network. Operation Python Dance is a program initiated by the Nigerian army to keep every community in check and to fish out all the bad eggs that might be causing troubles within the neighborhood. Recall that this program was launched in Abia State some years back and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had to jet out of the country overnight. If the Army decides to launch the program again, believe me, ESN will end.
