It's no longer news that in the South East, a new militant group called ‘Biafran Motherland Warrior' has emerged. The group is said to be deadlier than the Eastern Security Network (ESN), the armed wing of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and is said to operate in the Mbaise area.

Though little is known about them, they are said to be after security personnel. CSP Mike Abattam, the Police Public Relations Officer, was unavailable for comment because his phone rang unanswered.

With this new militant group boasting to be deadlier than the Eastern Security Network formed by Nnamdi Kanu, there is a possibility that the Nigerian Government won't treat them with a soft fist.
President Muhammadu Buhari had warned on several occasions that the army would not allow any individual or group to jeopardize field training by engaging in illegal or criminal activities.
There could be a possibility of the Federal Government relaunching the dreaded military operation to fish out members of this group. Operation Python dance is dreaded in the South East region just like other military operations in other regions. There could be two things involve, either a relaunching of "operation python dance" or sticking to "operation dance for peace".
