Leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has alleged that some Igbo politicians want to see him dead.
According to Kanu, not only do these politicians want him dead, they also want the death of IPOB and freedom for all.
Kanu made this statement while giving reasons his members would continue attacking Igbo leaders in foreign countries.
In a press statement issued Tuesday by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, he blamed the death of over 600 of his members through ‘Operation Python Dance’ on the leaders who he said allowed the desecration of Igbo tradition and culture following the invasion of his father’s compound by a Federal troop.
He said the explanation became necessary following the Nuremberg encounter in order to refresh memories, particularly of those “in the habit of excusing intolerable evil and wickedness.”
The statement partly read, “These men instigated, financed and defended a full-scale bloody military invasion of Biafraland; they tagged Operation Python Dance that led to the torture and untimely death of over 600 Biafrans, 28 of which fell in my compound.
“These men sanctioned the desecration of the home of an Igbo tradition ruler by Fulani soldiers and did not care if my father HRM Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and my mother, who were home with me during the unprovoked invasion, is killed or not.
“In view of the Nuremberg encounter, it has become necessary for us to refresh our memories lest it succumbs to confusion and deliberate misinformation because most people, unlike we IPOB, are in the habit of excusing intolerable evil and wickedness but we not.
“Every perpetrator of evil, every purveyor of iniquity, every merchant of misery and every defender of injustice must and will be held to account. We will not relent until justice is served.
“Those with a conscience can now understand the root cause of our anger and why we won’t stop until they all pay dearly for their sins.”
