The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) yesterday berated southeast Governors for their alleged plan to create another security outfit in place of their Ebube Agu Security.
Fidel Info reports that the pro-Biafra group said that they have been justified by the Governors that Ebube Agu was causing more security problems for South East, than solving the insecurity challenge of the zone, adding that the plan to form a new South East outfit is to cover the alleged crimes of Ebube Agu security outfit.
A statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, “IPOB condemns Eastern Governors for plans to create another security outfit to cover murderous activities of Ebubeagu,” kicked against the plans, saying that when formed, the new one will do worst things than Ebube Agu.
IPOB’s statement read, “We the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB ably led by our great and indefatigable leader Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu Kanu, rejects the South East Governor’s plan to form another security outfit to patrol our high ways.
“We declare such plans condemnable and unacceptable because the murderous Ebube Agu they created have killed and destroyed many of our people’s lives and properties.”
The pro-Biafra group described as pathetic the inability of South East Governors to publicly demand for the unconditional release of their brother, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which will help to bring security in South East as criminals hiding under the crisis caused by his detention will have no hiding place again once he is released.
“Even after Appeal Court’s verdict that discharged and acquitted Mazi Kanu, South East Governors except for Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, have maintained criminal silence, instead they are hypocritically calling for a political solution without the political will to accomplish it.
“They forget that the insecurity crisis in South East was because of the criminal abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya and extraordinary rendition to Nigeria, not knowing that once he is released, the whole of South East will be calm. southeast Governors should rise and demand his release, nobody will kill them because of saying the truth.
“We already have Eastern Security Network, ESN, working day and night to secure our Region, South East Governors should support them like South West Governors are supporting Amotekun Security Network, because our gallant men and women in ESN, are paying the ultimate price to keep our land safe from State-sponsored terrorists. We won’t allow another security outfit to operate here in South East.
“We want South East Governors to know that if not for ESN, by now, state-sponsored terrorists masquerading as Fulani herdsmen and militias would have overrun Biafra land, particularly Enugu State, where they have kilked and kidnapped many. We, therefore, don’t want another security outfit within our territory to avoid confusing our ESN.
“Forming another security outfit means that the Governors have exhausted their powers with Ebubeagu and are again looking for another means of confusing Biafraland. If these Governors and politicians insist on forming a rebranded Ebube Agu, that means that they are benefiting from insecurity in the Eastern Region.
“No South East governors can tell Biafrans where Ebube-Agu has protected our mothers in the farms, our sisters. IPOB members worldwide want the Eastern Governors to learn from Northern Governors whose actions are determined by their people’s wishes and demands. IPOB recognizes that they are under pressure from their masters in Abuja, but we expect them to remember that ESN has their back only if they understand. ESN has dislodged the murderous Fulani foot soldiers sent to overrun our farms.
Forming another security outfit in the region will cause confusion, anarchy, and increase criminality just like Ebube Agu did. IPOB will work against any other security outfit the Governors will create because their Ebubeagu security outfit brought destruction and criminality into our land. We won’t allow rebranding of the same murderous Ebubeagu security outfit or the disguising of criminal element.
We expected the Governors to demand for unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, which will bring peace and not waste their energy and resources creating another security outfit. IPoB will never succumb to any pressure to accept any other security outfit to be used against ESN like Ebube Agu did.
“Any Biafran youth who joins the rebranded Ebubeagu which they want to use again against our people is signing his death warrant. At this point Eastern Governors should read the hand writing on the wall.
The time of deception, using bribery, and blackmail for dirty jobs to deceive our youths are over. Don’t forget that we warned you about Ebubeagu before the calamity that befell them.
“IPoB is here to protect everybody within Biafra territory. What we need at this critical time in this unholy union of death called Nigeria is our people’s support and funding for ESN, not another counter-security outfit. “A stitch in time saves nine” and “A word is enough for the wise”

BREAKING: Jubilation across Nigeria as BUA Reduces Price Of Cement To N3,500
One of the major companies in Nigeria, BUA Group , has announced a reduction of ex-factory cement price to N3,500 per bag.
The company, which made this known in a statement on Sunday, said the reduction will take effect from 2 October, 2023.
The statement titled : ‘BUA Cement reduces ex-factory cement prices to N3,500/bag effective October 2, 2023’, reads in full :
“We refer to our previous pronouncements regarding our intent to reduce cement prices upon the completion of our new lines at the end of the year, in order to spur development in the building materials and infrastructure sectors.
As per the commitment made to reduce prices and following a periodic review of our operations for efficiency, the management of BUA Cement Plc wishes to announce and inform our esteemed customers, stakeholders, and the public that effective October 2, 2023, we have decided to bring the price reduction forward. As a result, BUA Cement would now be sold at an ex-factory* price of 3,500 Naira per bag so that Nigerians can begin to enjoy the benefits of the price reduction before the completion of our plants.
Upon completion of the ongoing construction of our new plants, which would increase our production volumes to 17million metric tonnes per annum, BUA Cement PLC intends to review these prices further in line with our earlier pronouncements by the first quarter of 2024.
NOTE: all pending, undelivered orders which had been paid for at the old prices will be reviewed downwards to N3500/bag in line with the new pricing from October 2, 2023. Our licensed dealers are also enjoined to ensure that end-users benefit from this reduction in ex-factory prices as we will monitor field sales to ensure compliance
“Total Shutdown”: List of Major Labour Unions that will Join Nationwide Strike
Barring any last-minute change of mind, Nigeria’s organised labour will embark on an indefinite strike on Tuesday, October 3.
The labour leaders in the country said they took the decision following the “failure” of the Bola Tinubu government to successfully implement policies to alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians following the removal of the subsidy on petrol.
“It’s going to be a total shutdown … until government meets the demand of Nigerian workers, and in fact Nigerian masses,” the labour leaders said.
October 3 strike: List of labour unions to join
There are numerous labour unions in Nigeria, cutting across different sectors.
Here is a list of the labour unions that have announced they will join the strike.
Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC)
The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is at the forefront of the strike. The union had earlier embarked on a two-day warning strike. It also gave the government a 21-day ultimatum, which has ended.
Joe Ajaero, the national president of the NLC, complained that “none of the demands put before the federal government had been addressed.”
The NLC is an umbrella body which houses unions for many industries, including nurses, road workers and printers.
Trade Union Congress (TUC)
The Trade Union Congress (TUC) is another major union whose members are ready to join the nationwide strike.
Members of the TUC include senior bank workers and high school teachers, among others.
Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG)
Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) is one of Nigeria’s main oil and gas unions.
NUPENG President Williams Akporeha said the union will also join the nationwide strike, according to Reuters.
Workers under NUPENG include fuel tanker drivers, pump attendants, among others.
National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE)
The National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) has also directed its members to commence full mobilisation to join the indefinite strike.
Premium Times reported that the NUEE in a notice signed by its acting general secretary, Dominic Igwebike, urged its members to stop work from the early hours of Tuesday.
This means Nigeria may be plunged into a blackout when the strike begins.
Association of Senior Staff of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institutions (ASSBIFI)
The Association of Senior Staff of Banks, Insurance and Financial Institutions (ASSBIFI) has also asked its members to join the strike.
ASSBIFI’s directive to its members, according to PM News, was issued by the Assistant General Secretary, Admin and Planning, Saka Adekunle and Head, International & Industrial Relations, Anthony Emeh.
This implies that banks may also not be in operation during the strike.
NURTW says it won’t join strike
Unlike other unions, the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has said that its members will not be participating in the strike, stating that the plan was “ill-timed and in bad faith”.
The union leader, Alhaji Tajudeen Badiru Agbede, stated the union’s position after an emergency meeting with all the state chairmen, secretaries and treasurers in Abuja, Nigerian Tribune reported.
Meanwhile, the federal government has made another move to halt the planned nationwide indefinite strike as it invited the union leaders for another round of interaction.
The peace meeting will be held on Sunday, October 1, at the presidential villa in Abuja
