Some killer Fulani herdsmen were allegedly prevented from attacking some towns in Enugu on Saturday, according to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The assailants attacked undisclosed Enugu areas when the governorship election was taking place in Anambra state, according to the organization.
However, it stated that the attacks were prevented by its militant wing, the Eastern Security Network (ESN).
This was revealed in a statement sent by the group’ s spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Sunday and made available to SaharaReporters.

The group promised not to allow criminals to assault any place in the South- East in a statement titled, ” While Anambra Election Was Going On, On Jihadists Came to Attack Biafra Communities In Enugu But Were Repelled By ESN- IPOB. ”
The declaration went like this: ” We are the Indigenous People of Biafra, led and commanded by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, our liberator and prophet. We want to emphasize that the Eastern Security Network’ s (ESN) mission is to track down fulani terrorists, robbers, and killer herdsmen lurking in Biafraland’ s bushes and forests.
” ESN was established to ensure that these bloodsuckers are not permitted to breed in Biafra territory.
This security organization has performed admirably, and Biafrans at home and abroad are quite proud of our brave men and women serving in ESN.
” The enemies and their backers hoped to catch us off guard, but unfortunately for them, our valiant ESN operatives keep a 24- hour monitor over the entire Biafra area.
” During the election in Anambra State, the enemies sent terrorists disguised as herders to Enugu State to assault unsuspecting Biafrans, but our ESN operatives’ vigilance paid off, and these agents of death and sorrow were rejected.
” No matter how hard they try, we will not allow terrorists to infiltrate any more Biafra land. ” ESN and IPOB would never again allow uncircumcised terrorists to r@pe Biafran women and girls. Regardless of the cost, we will continue to defend our ancient homeland!
” We warn the financiers of these jihadists and their foot soldiers not to waste their time because terrorists will not be allowed to occupy any portion of Biafra land. ”
” We once again call on Nigeria’ s Fulani- controlled Federal Government to hold a referendum for the people of Biafra to decide whether they want to remain part of Nigeria or form their own country. ” Britain’ s forced marriage is no longer viable.
” Biafrans are sick of coexisting alongside mass murderers. ” We cannot continue to live in a country where our people’ s lives have no meaning. We will no longer be citizens of a country that values cows over human life. We want to remain independent so that we can ensure the lives and safety of our people.
” We promise Biafrans that ESN operatives will remain on the watch tower because Nigerian security forces have refused to protect our people against Fulani death squads posing as herders. ”
If ESN truly repel attack by arned herdsmen, then it must be the promise made by IPOB some time ago, below is the full gist of the promise;

IPOB also stated that it has issued a red alert to all people in the southeast due to purported conspiracies by opponents to perpetrate mayhem on innocent citizens while executing the sit- at- home order.
IPOB spoke as Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, the former governor of Enugu State, begged the organization to cease wreaking havoc on the people, saying the group is gradually gathering ant- infested firewood for itself.
