Geoffrey-Onyema More disclosures have been publicised in the wake of the arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mr Nnamdi Kanu, by the Federal Government. This was contained in a letter addressed to Western diplomats by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, signed by Minister Geoffrey Onyeama. Kanu reportedly orchestrated the killing of 60 persons and the destruction of property in 55 violent attacks across the South East and South South Zones within four months, the memo disclosed. It was gathered that the letter dated April 26, 2021 detailed atrocities committed by members of IPOB on the alleged instruction of Kanu who was then in exile. With several Kanu’s broadcasts from Europe, there were concerns in official quarters that some western countries were justifying IPOB’s violent acts under the guise of the group’s pursuit of self-determination. According to the details contained in the letter, the Federal Government objected to a statement by an agency of a western nation whose government had noted and admitted that the creation of Eastern Security Network (ESN), based on its own understanding, was to combat insecurity.
