0

Apex Igbo socio-cultural group Ohanaeze Ndigbo on Sunday condemned the attack on the former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, by some members of the out-lawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) in Germany.

Ekweremadu was in Numberg Germany to deliver a keynote address at the New Yam Festival organised by the Igbo in Germany.

A statement by group’s President-General Chief John Nnia Nwodo reads: “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.”
