As a lot as, if not no fewer than 1000 members of defenseless Igbo inhabitants within the Southeast have been kidnapped or murderously arrested in Jan-April 2022 by safety forces, jihadists, road legal entities and suspected state actor raised armed counterfeiters. Whereas safety brokers accounted for 400 abductions or murderous arrests, Fulani jihadists, road legal gangs and suspected state actor raised armed counterfeiters took accountability for the remaining 600. Circumstances of everlasting disappearances additionally accompanied the abductions or murderous safety arrests. Troopers of the Nigerian Military and numerous police crack squads together with IRT, STS, CTU, Anti Cult/Theft/Kidnapping are accountable for abduction or murderous arrest of no fewer than 400 principally members of the defenseless civilian inhabitants in Southeast; accusing them of “ESN/IPOB membership”.

Supportive Analysis/Investigative Findings

Bias and False Intelligence 

Bias and False Intelligence arises on account of technology of intelligence on the grounds of ethnic profiling and hatred, pushed by sectional, vindictive and crude policing or securitization. Such ethnic profiling and hate derived corrupted intelligence can be a byproduct of unprofessionalism, legal generalization, false labeling and stigmatization akin to classification or designation of an ethno-religious group and remedy of similar as “legal group”. Bias and False Intelligence on this time of modernity is in the identical league with rumour intelligence or proof from which ‘trial by ordeal’ and its monumental incoherence with ‘Repugnancy Check’ (.i.e. ideas of pure justice) of the civilized Legal guidelines and Jurisprudences have been derived. 

Discrimination In Safety Command And Management Behind Bias And False Intelligence In Southeast

Since 2020 within the Southeast, bias and false intelligence, influenced by discrimination and segregation in command and management of the Nigerian safety forces had develop into the frontal modus operandi of the nation’s safety forces particularly troopers of the Nigerian Military, personnel of the Nigeria Police Pressure and Intelligence Service Companies drafted or stationed in Outdated Japanese Nigeria. The Bias and False Intelligence notably within the Southeast a part of the Outdated Japanese Nigeria or core Igbo areas was fueled and continues to be being fueled by ethnic and spiritual radicalization of the nation’s safety forces and their Excessive Instructions-which had given rise to current discrimination and segregation of their command and management. That is to the extent that centrally the safety forces are dominated and managed by members of the Northern Muslim inhabitants and the remaining from different elements of the nation. The variety of indigenous Igbo senior safety officers from the Southeast working in the identical Southeast could be very infinitesimal and they’re administratively suppressed and discriminated towards. Comparable, if not similar scenario is the case at state and native authorities ranges in Southeast the place these manning key safety formations are primarily, if not principally non indigenes who see and deal with residents of the Southeast Area as “hated legal group or residents”. 

Some religiously radicalized non-Southeast senior safety officers additionally see and deal with the Southeast residents as “non secular and ethnic slaves underneath conquest”. The details above acknowledged are a part of the findings of Intersociety in its a number of discipline investigations carried out as they involved the composition and management of the Nigerian safety forces notably the Armed Forces, the Nigeria Police Pressure, Intelligence Service Companies and the Paramilitaries in 2019-2021. By way of the formulation of Bias and False Intelligence and its utility within the Southeast and Igbo elements of the South-South, 1000’s of members of defenseless civilian inhabitants have been massacred or despatched to their early graves by safety forces. A number of 1000’s of others have additionally been kidnapped and a whole bunch disappeared with out traces whereas 1000’s nonetheless languish in several secret and locatable detention amenities for a couple of 12 months with out trial or bail. Tens, if not a whole bunch of billions of naira value of civilian properties together with 1000’s of ancestral properties and their generational antiquities and sacred sanctuaries value being quantified in billions of naira and others past materials quantification have been razed or burned to ashes by troopers of the Nigerian Military and the Nigeria Police Pressure’s “particular squads” and their allied militias. 

That is even when such properties, generational antiquities and spiritual sanctuaries don’t represent “objects of crimes towards individuals or properties” or “navy necessity or threats”. The despicable and hateful coverage of Bias and False Intelligence can be utilized by the drafted safety businesses to criminally label and stigmatize the Southeast defenseless civilian inhabitants and supply protecting cowl for a number of armed killer entities together with invading Fulani Jihadists, fifth columnist counterfeiters and members of the ‘road legal entities’ together with armed robbers, automobile snatchers, kidnappers, cultists, ritualists, premeditated murderers and different property and humanity criminals. By way of the use or utility of Bias and False Intelligence, safety brokers and their excessive instructions within the Southeast and different Igbo areas of the Outdated Japanese Nigeria now atrociously and crudely hyperlink to or blame each violent criminality within the Southeast and its ‘blue-collar’ setting on ‘ESN/IPOB’. In different phrases, besides “ESN”, there are not any extra road legal gangs akin to armed robbers, automobile snatchers, kidnappers, cultists, ritualists, premeditated murderers, rapists and invading Fulani jihadists and clandestinely state actor raised armed individuals or ‘fifth columnist counterfeiters”. It’s the discovering of Intersociety that whereas the Southeast defenseless civilians and their properties are focused for wanton destruction by safety forces and have them labeled ‘our bodies and properties of the ESN/IPOB”, no single Fulani Jihadist has been arrested and jailed or “killed in gun battle in Japanese Nigeria”. That is even though in 2021, alone, no fewer than 250 rural and concrete Igbo Christians have been hacked to demise by Fulani Jihadists and prior to now 4 months of 2022 or January to April, not lower than 60 defenseless others have died in secret and open killings by the jihadists and until date, not even a single considered one of them has been apprehended by safety forces and severely punished. 

Solely 2% Of Safety Intelligence And Info On Arrests And Killings In Southeast Is Appropriate

Going by a number of investigations carried out by Intersociety in Outdated Japanese Nigeria since 2020, it’s most definitely right to say that solely 2% of safety intelligence and knowledge on arrests and killings by safety forces and their Excessive Instructions within the Southeast and different Igbo areas of Outdated Japanese Nigeria is right. That can be to say that 98% others are most definitely to be false. Statistically talking, it has been discovered by Intersociety that: “out of all the knowledge operationally used (together with intelligence) or publicly launched by safety forces notably troopers of the Nigerian Military and personnel of the Nigeria Police Pressure of their extremely human rights abusive safety operations within the Southeast and Japanese Nigeria by extension, 98% are extremely questionable, if not completely false; out of each ten crimes reported and linked to “ESN/IPOB terrorism” within the Southeast, eight are most definitely not linked to ‘ESN terrorism’ but when really right, they’re perpetrated by members of road legal gangs or invading Fulani jihadists or state actor clandestinely raised/oiled fifth columnist counterfeiters; out of each ten individuals arrested and brought into custody by police (.i.e. IRT, STS, CTU, anti cult/theft squads, and so forth) in reference to “Biafra issues”, eight are seemingly not going to come back again; out of each ten individuals kidnapped by troopers over “Biafra issues”, 9, if not similar ten are seemingly not going to come back again; out of each ten individuals brazenly killed by police or troopers and labeled “ESN/IPOB members”, 9 are seemingly members of the defenseless civilian inhabitants; out of each ten individuals arrested by DSS over “Biafra issues”, 9 are prone to be severely tortured, starved and held for a number of months or years with out trial or launch; out of each ten individuals accused of “belonging to IPOB/ESN”, 9 are most definitely not armed ESN members and 6 others not “IPOB/Biafra activists”; out of each ten dwelling homes burned down or razed by troopers/ebubeagu militias/police crack squads and labeled “IPOB/ESN properties”, 9, if not all of the ten homes are most definitely to belong to members of the defenseless civilian inhabitants; out of each ten Christian non secular sanctuaries (.i.e. sacred locations of worship for white clothed Christian organizations) burned down or destroyed by troopers and police crack squads, similar ten of them are most definitely not linked to ‘ESN violence’; and out of each ten conventional non secular sanctuaries or deities focused and destroyed and labeled “ESN deities”, similar variety of them will most definitely find yourself being materials victims of rumour, unscientific and unverified intelligence or proof and spiritual profiling”.

Main Killer Teams In Southeast Forests: (1) Suspected State Actor Raised Armed Counterfeiters

There are presence of armed teams in Southeast Forests particularly in Anambra and Imo States terrorizing defenseless residents of the Area and their properties. They’re strongly suspected to have been raised clandestinely by state actors with their channels of helps by some political actors in Ebonyi and Imo States. The “suspected state actor raised armed counterfeiters” are strongly suspected to have been raised clandestinely by Authorities to interact in savagely acts and cruelty concentrating on members of the civilian inhabitants and their properties and generally embrace utilizing “expendables” within the safety forces as perpetrators or “collateral victims”. Their Acts of savagely and cruelty underneath reference are perpetrated aiming at counterfeiting or blackmailing a blacklisted group and its actions together with counterfeiting its formative self protection actions and blackening them with savagely acts and cruelty such because the latest report of killing and decapitation of the body-parts of a person and a lady referred by Nigerian Military as “couple troopers”. Totality of those is ungodly geared toward whipping up public sentiments or securing worldwide blacklisting towards the group. These killer teams have been sighted in Anambra State together with forests round Ukpor and Anambra-Imo boundaries. Their actions embrace open shootings and killing of civilians and car-snatching, abductions, sexual violence and ransoms in addition to focused arsons and videoed savage killings, and so forth.  

(2) Road Prison Entities

These are previously “Freeway Robbers” and “Money Ransom Kidnappers” and Cult Leaders and Infamous Human Traffickers who do them for a dwelling in an “industrial scale”. Owing to phasing out of ‘money economic system’ and introduction of ‘cashless banking’, they turned ‘upgraded’ and have considerably gone into the mastery of cybercrimes by the use of “e-kidnapping” whereby they abduct suspected wealthy residents and others able to being wealthy akin to Christian clerics by snatching their unique or flashy vehicles at gunpoint and forcing them to electronically open their financial institution particulars and forcefully switch big sums of cash working into tens of millions of naira per sufferer. In Anambra State, they’re a part of these terrorizing the State residents and have independently been noticed in Oba, Umuoji and Obosi/Awada axis in addition to Nnobi/Ichida/Awkaetiti/Igboukwu/Obeledu axis, and so forth. Not lower than ten Catholic Reverend Fathers and different Christian clergies have fallen sufferer to them throughout the State between March and April 2022. They function between some forests/bushes and concrete facilities and their Imo and Abia States counterparts generally perform cross boundary assaults on Anambra residents particularly round Ihiala, Nnewi South, Aguata and Orumba North and South axis, and so forth. A infamous ritualist/armed theft/kidnapping kingpin was additionally mentioned to have just lately relocated along with his gang from Aba in Abia State to an Ukpor forest in Anambra State. In late March 2022, a bunch of fierce trying younger males in a brown new Coaster Bus marked “Izzi Youth Motion” have been independently sighted at about 7.30pm alongside Obeledu-Oraeri-Igboukwu Highway axis heading to solely God is aware of “Anambra Forest Camp”.

(3) Fulani Jihadists

Members of this rapist, murderous and religiously radicalized armed group have remained untouchable and unchecked within the palms of the Nigerian safety forces drafted to Japanese Nigeria particularly its Southeast half and different Igbo areas of the Japanese Nigeria. Their jihadist abductions, sexual violence, killings and property destructions are hardly reported or checkmated by safety forces. Although their presence in over 400 Igbo Southeast communal bushes and forests has drastically been independently checkmated and trimmed down, they’ve staged a comeback since late 2021 by politico-religious and ill-motivated offensive operations by troopers of the Nigerian Military focused at a number of Igbo communities together with their bushes, forests and farmlands. A transparent living proof was Nkanu East in Enugu State the place they staged a violent comeback after troopers invaded the world in late 2021, burned down civilian homes and killed scores of defenseless natives. Additionally it is strongly suspected that the Fulani Jihadists are in alliance with suspected state actor armed counterfeiters whose atrocious members are independently discovered to have been raised by ‘ebubeagu militia experiment’. The strongly suspected Authorities oiled alliance between the 2 killer teams terrorizing defenseless residents of the Southeast is strongly suspected to be such that when a brand new forest or bush is occupied by the armed counterfeiters, the jihadists will probably be invited to occupy and takeover. Some no-go areas presently within the palms of the Fulani Jihadists are thick forests of Akokwa-Okigwe Federal Highway close to Anambra boundary and people of Umunze-Ndiokolo-Arondizogu-Okigwe Highway. It was within the former that it was independently reported off information by a victim-successful businessman how he was kidnapped final month (April 2022) and held for a number of days by Fulani Jihadists who additionally laid ambush on a completely loaded passenger automobile and kidnapped all of the passengers numbering over ten. The sufferer had additional disclosed how out of fifteen abductees-all Igbo Christians, eight have been shot useless in his presence and himself and the remaining ones have been pressured to trek for over two hours contained in the bush and that in finish, he was saved on account of the truth that he speaks Fulani Language fluently however not with out coughing out by cash switch a N2m ransom.

Anti State Safety Actors Referred to as “Japanese Safety Community”

They’ve remained the “Lord of the Southeast Forests” and one of many Nigeria’s latest armed teams and a territorial defensive violent group. Independently fashioned to safeguard the Southeast forests, bushes and farmlands from Fulani Jihadists’ assaults and violent seizure and conversion of similar to things of Islamic Jihad, ESN has additionally engaged in revenge violence focused at members of the safety forces for massacring and disappearing a number of a whole bunch of defenseless residents of the Area between August 2015 and Sep 2017. ESN can be presently discovered to be finishing up ‘periodic barrel of gun protest’ throughout which Authorities amenities and a few safety personnel are attacked resulting in wanton destruction of lives and properties throughout which some harmless residents collaterally get killed or maimed and their properties misplaced. The defensive violent actions of ESN are trademarked excluding indiscriminate humanity/property violence towards members of the Southeast defenseless inhabitants and their properties besides those that fall sufferer as “collateral victims” or their so referred to as “enemy-saboteurs”.
