The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mr Nnamdi Kanu has revealed more reasons for the attack on the former Deputy Senate President Senator Ike Ekweremadu by the members of Igbo community in Germany.
Ekwermadu was beaten, stoned and driven away at an event in Nuremberg, Germany, which was condemned by Southeast prominent politicians who believed that Ekweremadu had supported the IPOB leader in his Biafra course.
But in an interview published by Sunday Vanguard, Kanu claimed that the Enugu Senator was a member of a group that had been working behind the scene against the aspiration of IPOB.
“Anybody who was part of the Nike Lake Resort meeting of the 15th of September 2017, that effectively rubber-stamped my assassination and the deadly invasion of our land, will be confronted,” he said.
He accused Ekweremadu of being one of the chief sponsors of the gathering that consented to the invasion of his home.
“The records of the financiers, sponsors and attendees of that meeting are a matter of public record,” he said.
The IPOB leader stated that Ekweremadu was not a good man as against public perception, “I have no doubt that those who wish to see the continuation of the subservient, miserable and almost slave-like status of Ndigbo in Nigeria will see him as a good ambassador.”
He said, “The same people sold Rochas Okorocha to us as a detribalised Nigerian a few years back. See the disappointment he has become to the Igbo nation and Biafra at large.
“Those celebrating the culture of incompetence and mediocrity are the ones promoting these people.
“Arranging verbal attacks against Arewa North without credibly hurting their interests are meaningless. Where is the 2nd Niger Bridge?
“Why hasn’t it been built when 100% of the resources that sustain the whole of Nigeria come from Biafraland?
He said some of the Igbo leaders are not sincere about the self-determination of the Southeast geopolitical zone, “Of what use are these politicians when they connive to undermine IPOB that is truly checkmating the excesses of the Fulani Caliphate in our land?” Kanu asked.
Ike Ekweremadu was mobbed by Nigerians (mostly Ibos) in Germany not IPOB. "You've come to celebrate New yam festival here while herdsmen are killing Farmers in Nigeria". This is just the beginning of the Revolution because we all are tired. #RevolutionIsNow pic.twitter.com/AF7n6knQEj
