An official told newsmen, “The Nigerian Army that is supposed to fight Boko Haram were seen everywhere searching for the camp of Eastern Security Network team. But they forgot they are dealing with sophisticated men. There are cameras and drones everywhere watching them,”
“If the Nigerian Armed Forces attack the ESN, the people of Southern Kaduna, the Middle Belt, and the South-West must use that opportunity to flush out the Fulanis in their region. The Nigerian Army will disintegrate, and all will be free,” another official added
The Yoruba’s socio-cultural group, Afenifere, lent its support, Two days after Kanu launched the ESN, noting that Nigeria must embrace regional policing as the only remedy to insecurity.
Yinka Odumakin, The Afenifere National Publicity Secretary, in an interview, added that the distorted federal police could no longer secure the country; hence the establishment of regional security outfits to protect lives and property.
He said, “It is seen that the central policing in Nigeria has collapsed, and the regional policing is not a new thing in this country. And, I tell you, we are back to the era of regional policing.
“The security challenges have gone beyond what the Nigeria police can handle, and since we have had regional policing before, we are back into the era again.”
When asked if this is commendable and needed, he said, “Kanu is doing what is good for his region.”
The Nigerian Army has not released any comments on the deployment of the aircraft.
