It is no longer news that the activities of the armed unit of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Eastern Security Network (ESN) in the name of Unknown Gunmen in Southeast Nigeria have led to the death of a priest of an Anglican Church in the region.
This painful exit of the man of God and other destructive activities of the deadly ESN/IPOB is why I think religious and political leaders, as well as opinion leaders in the region, should start speaking up against IPOB/ESN and their activities now.
From yesterday to today, a lot of things (including life and properties) have been lost in that part of the country.
The Anglican Reverend was killed by the suspected members of IPOB/ESN over an unfound allegation that he brought in security men to secure a school placed under his care by the church.
Late Rev Emeka.
Also, cars were set ablaze in Enugu State yesterday by those who were enforcing the illegal sit-at-home order. That same yesterday, motorcycles belonging to students who were writing WAEC in Imo State were set on fire after the students were forced to abandon their exams.
This morning, a tricycle was set ablaze in the region simply because the owner decided to go out in search of daily bread. These and many losses are what the illegal group has inflicted on the residents of the region in the past two days.
If nothing is urgently done by the leaders of the region, the group may soon degenerate into full-blown terrorism and put the region in a chaotic situation.
