Why we attacked Ike Ekweremadu– IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Sunday gave reasons why its members attacked former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, in Germany.

It was reported how the senator was attacked in Nuremberg, Germany where he was attending the New Yam Festival of Igbo community in that country.

Reacting to the attack, IPOB said it has ordered its members in 100 countries across the world to attack Igbo leaders anytime they see them in any part of the world

It listed other leaders marked for such attacks to include Governors David Umahi of Ebonyi, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia and Willie Obiano of Anambra state.

The group also put on notice Ndigbo leaders such as the President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo, whom it accused of supporting a military operation in the South-east.

Operation Python Dance was launched by the Nigerian Army in the South-east in 2016 in the wake of protests by IPOB members who were demanding secession from the country.

During the Operation Python Dance, the army raided Umuahia, Abia State, the hometown of the leader of the secessionist group, Nnamdi Kanu.

Mr Kanu, who was then on bail for his treason trial, escaped from Nigeria during the army operation.

The federal government designated IPOB as a terrorist organisation on September 18, 2017, under the Terrorism (Prevention) Act 2013.

IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful, in a statement, said the directive to attack Igbo leaders was given by the IPOB leader and the attack on Mr Ekweremadu, in Nuremberg, Germany on Saturday was in obedience to the order.
