The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has explained that the attacked on former deputy senate president, Ike Ekeremadu, was in accordance to directives by leaders of the Biafran group.
Okay.ng had on Saturday reported that Ekeremadu was physically attacked by IPOB members during the annual cultural festival of the Ndigbo in Germany.
The senator through a statement assured his supporters across the nation that he was safe.
Emma Powerful, the spokesman of IPOB, responded to the attack in a statement on Sunday.
The statement reads: “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.
“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.”
