A serious warning has been issued to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) by the Southeast governors over his threat to attack some Igbo political leaders including the governors whenever sighted abroad as reported by Daily Post.
In a statement signed by the Chairman, Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi sate, the governors vowed to use every possible means to repatriate Nnamdi Kanu to Nigeria to face the wrath of the people should any southeast person be attacked abroad.
Recall that Senator Ike Ekweremadu was assaulted in Nuremberg Germany while attending a new yam festival organised by the Igbo community over there.
IPOB later claimed responsibility for the assault and the leader of the group, Nnamdi kanu issued a statement that it sounds as a warning to Igbo political leaders.
The South-East Governors condemned the attack on Ike Ekweremadu whom they described as “one of the finest leaders of Ndigbo”, and stated that the attackers do not know “the implication of their naked dance in public”.
The statement further described Kanu’s threat as “empty threat” and assured the people of Igboland that they “are doing so much to protect them against killer herdsmen and other insecurity problems. We have also brought kidnapping and cultism in the Southeast to near zero level”.
The statement read: “South-East Governors are saddened with the ugly display and dance of shame by IPOB in Germany in attacking one of the finest leaders of Ndigbo, Senator Ike Ekweremmadu. We totally condemn it as we weep for them as they never knew the implication of their naked dance in public.
“We have also noted the empty threats by Mr. Nnamdi Kanu (a former ordinary Member of MASSOB) to attack Governors of South-East, Ohanaeze leadership and other Igbo politicians for not supporting the self-acclaimed supreme leader in his self-fight for the raw power and wealth while pretending to be fighting for Ndigbo.
“We wish to warn that should any Southeast person be attacked anywhere in the world, we shall, by all means, bring back Kanu to Nigeria to face the wrath of our people. It is madness for anyone who wants raw power with no experience to think that we Governors will support the killing of our people giving out our scarce land to herdsmen.
“If Kanu is serious, let him direct IPOB to fight those foreign killer herdsmen in their countries of origin since he claims the IPOB is in over 100 countries in the world.
“If Kanu who was previously in MASSOB but needed power and money wants Biafra and he is the self-acclaimed supreme leader, let him come back home with his army and guns to lead us to battle for the empire he desire to lead other than cheap talks. Soonest Ndigbo will know him better.
“We assure our people that we are doing so much to protect them against killer herdsmen and other insecurity problems. We have also brought kidnapping and cultism in the Southeast to near zero level.
“We are highly committed to the security and well-being of our people and will never be distracted by cheap talks.”
