South-East Governors have issued a stern warning to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed
Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) over his threats to attack them and other South-East leaders abroad.
The Governors, in a statement on Tuesday night, said should Kanu make his threat real, they would, by all means, repatriate him back to Nigeria to face the wrath of the people.
The statement was signed by its chairman and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi.
Senator Ike Ekweremmadu was at the weekend assaulted in Nuremberg Germany where he was invited as the keynote speaker and special guest of honor at the occasion of annual new yam festival and convention of Ndigbo in Germany.
Few minutes after the attack, IPOB claimed responsibility in a statement by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful.
This was also followed by a broadcast by Kanu through the group’s rogue Radio station, Radio Biafra, in which he also corroborated the earlier statement and maintained that the Southeast Governors and other Igbo politicians must receive Ekweremmadu’s treatment any time they are seen in public abroad.
The attack on Ekweremadu by IPOB has received condemnation from all quarters and South-East Governors in the statement described the attack by IPOB as a display of shame and ignorance.
The Governors said they have noted the threats by Kanu who they alleged is fighting for his self-interest but pretending to be fighting for Ndigbo and would soonest expose him if he doesn’t retrace his steps.
