The recent attack on Ike Ekweremadu by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPB) may not be the last, says its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
This is going by reiterations from the group, via a press statement issued Tuesday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.
He referred to what he called the desecration of Igbo tradition and culture which the leaders allowed, as well as the death of over 600 of IPOB members through ‘Operation Python Dance’.
The press statement titled: “Setting the Records Straight…..” Kanu alleged that the interest of the Igbo politicians was his death, that of IPOB, as well as the death of its dream of freedom for all.
He said the explanation became necessary following the Nuremberg encounter in order to refresh memories, particularly of those “in the habit of excusing intolerable evil and wickedness.”
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.”
