The ex-soldier was said to have been recruited by some members of IPOB in Abuja and sent to train newly recruited IPOB/ESN in two of their training Camps in Abia and Delta States.

Upon his arrest, the suspect confessed to having been employed by the IPOB who promised to pay him double of what he was receiving in the army.

He also confessed to have trained at least 2,000 members of the ESN on combat operations, ambush, and use of firearms, in the two camps between last September and December.

According to him, he was engaged by one ‘Mr Ebere’ who paid him N100,000 before he proceeded to Abia State.

He said Mr. Ebere was later arrested alongside 14 other suspected members of the group who were using Church premises for their meetings where they raised money to be sent to the South-east for buying of ammunition.

Items recovered from the ex-soldier were receipts, a list of contributors, a list of members, and oaths of allegiance to Biafra and Nnamdi Kanu.
