The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has stated that Professor Ben Nwabueze, the Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, and the Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, should all be declared as Deputy Commanders of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, for standing beside him in photos, Page 36 learnt.
The IPOB Leader was mocking the Nigerian Army for claiming to have arrested a tagged Deputy Commander of the ESN.
Recall, that the Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier-General Mohammed Yerima, had on May 12, announced that the Military arrested one Awurum Eze, a native of Umoneke Nta, Isiala-Mbano LGA, Imo State, tagging him as the Deputy Commander of the ESN.
He also shared photos showing Eze standing beside Kanu and other persons.
Reacting however, Kanu shared photos showing him with prominent South-East Leaders, and wondered if they could also be labelled as ESN Deputy Commanders, just because of the photos they took with him.
He tweeted: “Since standing beside or taking a photo with me makes you an #ESN “Deputy Commander”, perhaps the very preeminent and foremost Constitutional Lawyer, Prof. Nwabueze, @DaveUmahi, and Gov. Ugwuanyi are all #ESN Deputy Commanders. @HQNigerianArmy exhibiting their usual idiocy. #ZOO.”
