The President-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nwodo has condemned the attack launched by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Ike Ekweremadu during the second annual Igbo Cultural Festival held in Nuremberg, Germany.

IPOB on Saturday said the former Deputy President of the Senate was attacked because of his stupidity

Chief Nwodo argues that the incident strengthens the case of those who describe them as terrorists and weaken the case against the infringement of their fundamental human rights.

“The assault on Ekweremadu by Igbos in Germany, described as IPOB, is disappointing, grotesque and dangerous for Igbo solidarity.

“This violent, rude, impertinent, divisive and discourteous style of IPOB or IPOB instigated miscreants is damaging to our cause. It strengthens the case of those who describe them as terrorists and weaken our case against the infringement of our fundamental human rights.

“Ekweremadu negotiated the sureties and securities for Nnamdi Kanu’s release on bail. He does not deserve this picketing and disgrace. A disgrace to him is a disgrace to Igbo race.

“Whilst I condemn the attack on our revered son and leader, I call on the law enforcement agencies in Germany to bring to book the perpetrators of this despicable act. It is un-Igbo. It is disgraceful,” Nwodo said
