Insecurity: Killing of ESN Commander will radicalise IPOB – Femi Fani-Kayode
Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Minister of Aviation condemned the killing of Eastern Security Network,ESN commander, Ikonso by security personnel days ago.
Fani-Kayode took to his social media handle to berate the security personnel for the killing which he said is likely to radicalise members of the regional group.
“The biggest mistake that the Nigerian state has made since the killing of Mohammed Yusuf, the erstwhile leader of Boko Haram, is the killing of Ikonso the IPOB & ESN Commander a few days ago.This single act has radicalised IPOB & will have consequences. It is sad & unfortunate”, according to the former minister.
Ikonso was Nnamdi Kanu right hand man and Eastern Security Network commander until his death.
Following the death of Ikonso, several members of the Indigenous People of Biafra,IPOB were arrested by joint security personnel of the federal government after a raid in their hideout.
The killing of Ikonso is likely to fuel more hostility in Eastern Nigeria as Imo State Governor,Hope Uzodinma house in Omuma was set ablaze yesterday by unknown gunmen.
