Kanunta Kanu has warned politicians and governors in the South East to desist from promoting banditry in the zone.
Kanunta is brother of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Kanu said governors and politicians should stop paying ransom to bandits in the Southeast.
In a tweet, Kanu said the Southeast must be free from Fulani kidnappers.
He lamented that bandits have been paid millions and the Eastern Security Network, ESN, has been victimized.
According to Kanu: “Eastern Region MUST be free from the hands of Fulani kidnappers.
“The governors, politicians, and elites should stop promoting banditry in SE by paying ransom to free abductees.
“You pay bandits millions, victimises #ESN & encourage the killings of #Biafrans by @HQNigerianArmy”.
Several people have been killed in the Southeast and blamed on ESN operatives.
