Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has declared their intentions not to relent in the punishment of Igbo leaders after the attack of Senator Ike Ekweremadu by IPOB members.
Kanu blamed the leaders for the desecration of Igbo traditional homes by Fulani soldiers during the Nigerian army’s operation ‘python dance’.
He also placed the death of over 600 IPOB members during the operation which also involved invasion of his father’s palace in Umuahia.
In the press statement titled “Setting the Records Straight…..” which was issued on Tuesday by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary Emma Powerful, IPOB warned that they won’t stop until all Igbo leaders pay dearly for their sins.
Recall, Senator Ekweremadu had been beaten to a pulp in Germany when members of IPOB ambushed him at an event.
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.”
