The leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force (NDPSF), Asari Dokubo, has described the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu, as an ‘ingrate’.
Dokubo was reacting to the attack on the former senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, by a mob believed to be members of IPOB in Germany on Saturday.
Ekweremadu was physically attacked by the mob when he traveled for an Igbo event in Nuremberg, Germany.
In a video on YouTube, Dokubo described Kanu as an ‘ingrate’, adding that the attack on Ekweremadu by members of the group was “dastardly and cowardly”.
According to the former militant leader, the ex-senate president was one of the people who ensured Kanu was released from prison.
He said, “Fellow Biafrans, I saw this coming that a Frankenstein monster was being created. I saw the signal, I saw the red flag and I warned you that if something is not done about Nnamdi Kanu, he will consume the Igbo people. And you did not listen.
“I took some time more than 24 hours after the break of the news on the dastardly and cowardly attack one of our finest and one of our best, Ike Ekweremadu, who I know very well was one of the people who made this ingrate, Nnamdi Kanu, to come out of prison.
“I am privy to most of the discussions and I feel very sad that I was part. I participated in those meetings. Ike Ekweremadu and Abaribe were the arrowheads that moved for the release of this ingrate, Nnamdi Kanu. That Ike Ekweremadu will be attacked, disgraced, his clothes torn for what purpose, to achieve what. If this dangerous path is not stopped among Igbo Biafrans, where one man arrogates to himself the right to give life and to pronounce death, you will be in fire because others will fight him.”
Kanu is wanted in Nigeria for an alleged treasonable offence. His IPOB group has since been proscribed by the government.
