‘It’s un-Igbo’; Ohanaeze condemns attack on Ekweremadu in Germany by ‘IPOB miscreants’

ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION: To dispel police submission, Ekweremadu threatens to release video of attack

The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, has condemned an attack on the former Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, by suspected members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Germany, describing it as disgraceful and “un-Igbo”.

The Ohanaeze leader, who made the condemnation on Saturday in a statement, also called on the German law enforcement agencies to bring the perpetrators to justice.

He said: “The assault on Ekweremadu by Igbos in Germany, described as IPOB, is disappointing, grotesque and dangerous for Igbo solidarity.

“This violent, rude, impertinent, divisive and discourteous style of IPOB or IPOB-instigated miscreants is damaging to our cause. It strengthens the case of those who describe them as terrorists and weaken our case against the infringement of our fundamental human rights.

“Ekweremadu negotiated the sureties and securities for Nnamdi Kanu’s release on bail. He does not deserve this picketing and disgrace. A disgrace to him is a disgrace to Igbo race.

“Whilst I condemn the attack on our revered son and leader, I call on the law enforcement agencies in Germany to bring to book the perpetrators of this despicable act. It is un-Igbo. It is disgraceful.”
