Alexander A. Onwumere, PhD; Henry O. Ebo, PhD; Sylvester C. Ohaeri, PhD

This research work is on ESN trojanism and the consequences of separatist maniacs in Imo State. The ESN (Eastern Security Network) has, for some years now, staged somewhat of a war against the Nigerian nation at large and the Imo state in particular under the guise of agitation for independence. ESN attacks affect mostly Orlu, Orsu, Oru East, and Oru West L.G.As. The objectives of the research are to examine the degree to which citizens are exposed to the violation of human rights, investigate the causes of the violations of human rights in Imo State, examine the IPOB/ESN Trojan inclination and the violation of human rights, the consequences of the violation. The researchers invoke the theories of Feminism, Marxism, and Interest Theory of Rights. The outcome of the research is significant in terms of resource material for policymakers in the area of human rights. The researchers recommend, among others, quality reforms in the security sector and penalization of the violators of human rights.
