Meanwhile, last year in Abia state, the Biafran National Guard (BNG), after claiming on the Abia State Police Command Headquarters, Umuahia said;
“We encountered vigilante groups while travelling from Nsukka to Abia state but refused to open fire at them. We appreciate the effort of vigilante groups (Ebube Agu) but it is high time they left the roads and go into our communities. They should guide our communities and leave major roads.
“Because we won’t leave them next time because they work with the occupational government and are a threat to the people’s army. We are warning them to resign or go into our communities alone; we will protect our roads and should they continue their vigilante whatsoever; we will see them as enemy link.”
