The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has on Sunday, August 18, 2019, ordered its members in 100 countries across the world, to attack the Governors of Ebonyi, Enugu, Abia, and Anambra States, if they are seen in any of the countries around the world.
The group also put on notice Ndigbo Leaders, such as the president-general of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, who it accused of supporting the deadly Operation Python Dance in the South-East.
Recall, that operation Python Dance was launched by the Nigerian Army in the South-East in 2016, in the wake of protests by IPOB members, who were demanding secession from the country.
During the Operation Python Dance, the Army raided Umuahia, Abia State, the home town of the Leader of the Secessionist group, Nnamdi Kanu, whose whereabouts have been unknown since then.
Ultimately, the Federal Government designated IPOB as a terrorist organisation, on September 18, 2017, under the Terrorism (Prevention) Act 2013.
While speaking, IPOB Spokesperson, Emma Powerful, noted that the South-East Governors and some Ndigbo Leaders have been marked as enemies to be attacked, if they were seen in any of the 100 countries their members are residing.
He said that the directive was given by Kanu, and that in obedience to the IPOB Leader’s order, its members were the ones who attacked a former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, in Nuremberg, Germany, on Saturday.
The IPOB Spokesman, described Ekweremadu as a “traitor”, accusing him of being among those that got the pro-Biafra group proscribed, alongside the South-East Governors.
Emma Powerful vowed that IPOB would take similar action against the South-East Governors and Ndigbo Leaders, if they dared to attend any public event abroad.
He said: “ on Saturday, the Nuremberg IPOB family in Germany, in keeping with the long-standing directive from our Leader to hound all instigators of the Operation Python Dance, is glad to report that Ike Ekweremadu was confronted and duly hounded out of a so-called New Yam Festival event, in Germany.
“Despite repeated warnings to the organisers of this jamboree, that Enugu, Ebonyi and other parts of ‘Biafraland’ are under siege by the Fulani caliphate and their collaborators within, they went ahead to invite a known traitor, co-conspirator, and one of those who worked with Igbo Governors to proscribe and tag IPOB a terror organisation, while they never raised any voice against the murderous Fulani herdsmen.
“This should serve as a warning to Nnia Nwodo, Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano, and others, that any day we find them in a public event abroad, they will be humiliated. IPOB is strategically located in over 100 countries around the world. Anywhere we find them, they will be dealt with.”
