JUST IN: Arrested Commander Of Group Attacking INEC Office Exposes Top Sponsors

Arrested Commander Of Group Attacking INEC Office Exposes Top Sponsors

A suspected member of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), the militant wing of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Ejima, who was arrested by Nigeria’s secret police, the Department of State Services (DSS), has disclosed the names of the sponsors of terror in Imo State.

Ejima was arrested for allegedly masterminding attacks on offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the state.

In viral videos showing where Ejima was interviewed by journalists after his arrest, the suspect who admitted being the ESN Commander of Njaba Division, said they have three sponsors namely Chinasa Nworu, Okey Foreign, both based overseas and one Vitalis Anwunaezi from Budomu village in Imo.

Ejima said Nworu told them to attack operatives of Ebubeagu, a security outfit set up by governors in southeast Nigeria, wherever they see them.

He said, “My name is Erika from Atah, Njaba. I am 40 years old. I joined ESN (Eastern Security Network) over two years ago for freedom fighting.

“I have attacked only two places – Afor Atah and Orlu roundabout, around Ama Hausa. But I did not have a gun that day during the operation but my fellow people were going, so I followed them from behind.

“As they were carrying out the operation, we were three following them and as we were about to cross, soldiers started shooting at us and we left our motorcycles and ran away.

“I am the Commander of the Njaba division. I have killed only one boy who stole at Ukwuozor, because as a commander, I don’t follow them to do operations. We saw the boy going on the road after he stole and he had a gun and pursued him and as we were pursuing him, we shot him and collected the gun.

“I did not follow them when they burnt the INEC office because I was not in the village at that time. The people who did it are from Owerri. It was Temple boys.

“Why I know it was Temple boys is because they lived with Temple before but Temple settled them and they entered Owerri. Based on the names they called them, it was from Owerri that they went for the operation. I don’t know them. I know Temple very well but I don’t know the boys.”

Asked how he feels about his arrest, Ejima said, “I feel very bad. I regret my action.”

He said their camp is behind Afor Atah Police Station “but for the past six to seven months ago, we don’t have any camp now because I ran away because police started looking for me.”

On the traditional ruler who was killed, he said, “It was my men who held him but the person who shot the traditional ruler is Freeman with Sky and Number One.”

Asked of their sponsors, Ejima said, “It is Chinasa Nworu who stays abroad. I just know him as DOS commander from ESN. He and Okey Foreign have been sponsoring us for about two years now to carry out activities in Imo State.

“It is only Chinasa Nworu and Okey Foreign that sponsor us from abroad. The other man from the village is Vitalis Anwunaezi from Budomu.

“Chinasa Nworu told us to attack the Ebubeagu people anywhere we see them. We go to Orsu to sign our weapons from Temple.”
