The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has vowed to hound other prominent Igbo leaders considered as traitors when found in public events overseas.
The IPOB, in a statement issued yesterday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, owned up on the attack on the former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu in Nuremberg, Germany.
The statement titled: “Operation Python Dance instigator Ike Ekweremadu disgraced by IPOB Nuremberg Family”, vowed to attack the Governors of Ebonyi, Abia and Anambra States, as well as other notable Igbo leaders who allegedly played a role in the proscription of the IPOB as a terror organisation, and for their perceived silence on herdsmen attacks in the South East.
It reads: “Today 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, 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.”
