The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has justified its attack on former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, adding that other Igbo leaders won’t be spared when found in a public event abroad.
Ekweremadu was on Saturday attacked by some members of the IPOB in Germany during an annual event of the Ndigbo.
In a statement by Emma Powerful, IPOB’s spokesperson, the group said, Ekweremadu is a “traitor”, who worked with “Igbo governors to proscribe and tag IPOB a terror organisation”.
Some Igbo leaders marked for attacks similar to Ekweremadu’s include David Umahi, governor of Ebonyi state; Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, governor of Enugu state; Okezie Ikpeazu, governor of Abia state; Willie Obiano, governor of Anambra state, and Nnia Nwodo, president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
“Yesterday, being the 17th day of August 2019 the Nuremberg IPOB family in Germany in keeping with the long-standing directive from our leader to hound all instigators of Operation Python Dance, IPOB is glad to report that Ike Ekweremadu was confronted and duly hounded out of a so-called New Yam Festival event in Germany,” the statement read.
“Despite repeated warnings to the organisers of these jamborees that Enugu, Ebonyi and other parts of Biafraland is under siege by Fulani caliphate and their collaborators within, they went ahead to invite a known traitor, co-conspirator and one of those that worked with Igbo governors to proscribe and tag IPOB a terror organisation while they never raised any voice against murderous Fulani herdsmen.
“This should serve as a warning to Nnia Nwodo, Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano and co that any day we find them in a public event abroad, they will be humiliated.
“IPOB is strategically located in over 100 countries around the world. Anywhere we find them, they will be dealt with.”
