Nnamdi Kanu has sent a message to the 101 soldiers who fled from Boko Haram insurgency to “come and join Eastern Security Network (ESN).”

The leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra and founder of the Eastern Security Network, Nnamdi Kanu, has asked the 101 soldiers accused by the Nigerian Army of fleeing the Boko Haram attacks in New Marte and Dikwa towns in Borno State to join the ESN.

It was earlier reported that 12 officers and 89 soldiers have been declared missing by the Nigerian army in the wake of last week’s Boko Haram attacks on Marte and Dikwa local government areas of Borno State. A signal dated March 1, 2021 from Operation Lafiya Dole Headquarters in Maiduguri, revealed that the soldiers were declared as deserters.

Reacting to the development, Kanu in a live broadcast on Wednesday, March 3, said the doors of the ESN were open to the soldiers.

He said:

“Sometimes I wonder, how can you come from the East, West and Middle Belt, and you are in the army? And they used you to go and fight the bandits so that you can be killed.

The Theatre Command Headquarters sent a memo to the Nigerian Army Headquarters, Abuja, to freeze the listed accounts and apprehend the alleged deserters if found.

The Nigerian Army has given an order to declare wanted 101 soldiers who fled the Boko Haram terrorists’ attacks in New Marte and Dikwa towns near Maiduguri in Borno State.

The army, through the Operation Lafiya Dole Theatre Command, also ordered that their bank accounts should be frozen pending when they would report themselves to the command.

Military documents obtained by Peoples Gazette confirmed a list of 101 names, ranks and bank details of errant soldiers. 

The Theatre Command Headquarters sent a memo to the Nigerian Army Headquarters, Abuja, to freeze the listed accounts and apprehend the alleged deserters if found. 

“You are requested to declare the named officers and soldiers deserters WEF 19 Feb 21,” the document said. You are also please requested to cause the headquarters, NAFC, to freeze their accounts and apprehend or bring them under military escort to this headquarters if seen within your Area of Responsibility,” the military memo said.

The soldiers of 153 Task Force Battalion were ambushed in Marte Local Government Council, late last month, as the troops were overwhelmed and could not match the ammunition carried by the terrorists.

After Marte was captured by Boko Haram, the Chief of Army Staff, Maj Gen Ibrahim Attahiru, had given troops of Operation Lafiya Dole 48 hours to clear insurgents off Marte LGA and surrounding communities under the insurgents’ control.

The villages under the terrorists control were the Kirenowa, Kirta, Wulgo and Ngala local government areas of the state.

The soldiers went through Marte, successfully killing the ISWAP and Boko Haram terrorists who captured the area for some days. 

Also, Dikwa was attacked by the insurgents earlier this week and abducted no fewer than seven humanitarian workers from the town.

According to Sahara Reports, the aid workers were picked up by the terrorists who were dressed in military camouflage and spoke “good English.”

Although the military claimed on Tuesday that its troops repelled the Boko Haram and Islamic State of West Africa Province terrorists’ attack on Dikwa, it was silent on the whereabouts of the reportedly abducted aid workers.

Reacting to the attack, the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Nigeria condemned the burning of the UN property.
