Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has made it known that Igbo leaders will continue to be attacked by his members until they “all pay dearly for their sins”.
This was made known by the proscribed IPOB leader, after the attack of Ike Ekweremadu on Saturday, by members of the group, during the annual cultural festival of the Ndigbo, Igbo apex social-cultural group, in Nuremberg, Germany.
In a statement issued on behalf Kanu on Tuesday by Emma Powerful, the group’s spokesperson, he blamed the death of over 600 of its members during the Operation Python Dance carried out by the military in the south-east on leaders of the region.
H said, “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,” he said.
“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.”
