IPOB reacts to Ekweremadu’s attack in Germany
* Says similar fate awaits Obiano, Ikpeazu, Umahi, others
* Urges other nationalities to rise against their own traitors
By Steve Oko
The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, has given reasons its members attacked the immediate -past Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu in Germany.
Ekweremadu had gone to Germany where he was to deliver a keynote address at the Igbo Annual Cultural festival on Saturday when the incident occurred.
In its reaction Sunday, IPOB explained that the humiliation meted out to Ekweremadu was because of his alleged docility along with other Igbo political elite over the killings and incessant unprovoked attacks on Igbo communities by Fulani herdsmen.
IPOB accused Ekweremadu and other Igbo political elite of not using their privileged positions to defend Ndigbo against oppressions and attacks.
The pro-Biafra group also accused Ekweremadu of being part of the instigators of the 2017 special military operation in the South East code-named Operation Python Dance during which the Umuahia country home of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu was attacked.
IPOB further explained that part of its grouse with Ekweremadu was his alleged refusal to remove the Nigeria coat of arm attached on the clothe he wore to the event even when he was approached and asked to remove it before entering the arena.
According to the statement signed by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB said that henceforth, all Igbo political elite who supported the infamous operation python dance, as well as all those non charlant about Igbo cause would be publicly disgraced both at home and abroad.
The statement obtained made available to Wawa News Global read in part :
“On 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, is glad to report that Ike Ekweremadu was confronted and duly hounded out of a so-called New Yam Festival event in Germany.
“Despite repeated warnings to the organisers of these jamborees that Enugu, Ebonyi and other parts of Biafraland are 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.
” I have gathered from eyewitnesses at the Nuremberg meeting that Ike’s ego problem brought about the melee. Why attend the event in clothe bearing Nigeria’s coat of arms?
” And when you were politely asked to change the outfit you started shouting ‘Do you know who I am?
“Not done with that you forced yourself into the venue. And to know you are a lawyer makes it disgusting!! comportment counts.”
IPOB said the development would serve as a warning to all “Igbo traitors ” including South East Governors.
It urged other ethnic nationalities to rise against their own leaders who work against their interest for personal gains.
“Our own revolution has commenced and things will never be the same again. Its up to other ethnic nationalities to deal with corrupt politicians and merchants of misery within themselves. We have started ours and Nuremberg is only a tip of the iceberg. Let the #Revolution start now.”
