Early 2021, Nnamdi Kanu announced the formation of Eastern Security Network, ESN which he said it’s organized as self defense for the people of southeast states against Fulani herdsmen advancing from the North.
Nigerian Army believed the Unknown Gunmen terrorizing the Southeast states are members of the ESN.
