Though it is coming a bit too late but it is better late than never. Like it's counterpart from the western region of Nigeria, to the extent that the stamp of authority was embossed on it by the five southeastern governors on the 11/4/2021, EbubeAgu is the authentic Eastern Nigeria Security Network (ENSN)
Again, like the reasons given by the proponents of Amotekun security outfit, the southeast governors pointed out the need to arrest forest-based insecurities in the region (kidnappings, killings, rapings and other crimes) which in most cases are traceable to the herders, as being the major reason for the establishment of EbubeAgu.
These reasons cannot be dismissed because they are not only on ground but are visible even to the blinds.
This approach can best be seen as that of the moderates ( the political and traditional leaders of the Igbos) as against the approach of the youths/extremists of Nnamdi KANU, IPOB ,ESN and should be commended and embraced by the federal authorities for dialogue, cooperation, collaboration, synergy and incorporation into the security architecture for the region.
Working with EbubeAgu by the federal security agencies is even more imperative now since both the eastern region and the federal government have the desire for a lasting solution to the security issues in the region. Only that on one hand, the federal security agencies tend to be overwhelmed and on the other, the approaches being adopted by both parties before now do not align, now they can be aligned
Also if the federal government can see this as a good opportunity for dialogue towards achieving a more secured and peaceful southeast, by working out modalities with the governors and implementing them, the more extreme approach of the IPOB, ESN and other youths approaches can be checked and finally be brought to a halt.
Most certainly, long lasting peace and security can be achieved in southeast Nigeria, it is achievable.
