The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has said his members will continue to attack Igbo leaders until they “all pay dearly for their sins”.
Mr. Kanu said this in a statement issued on his behalf on Tuesday by Emma Powerful, the group’s spokesperson, accusing South-East leaders of instigating and financing military invasion of the region.
He blamed them for the death of over 600 of its members during the Operation Python Dance.
The statement read partly, “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.”
On Saturday, suspected IPOB members attacked Ike Ekweremadu, former deputy senate president, during the annual cultural festival of the Ndigbo, Igbo apex social-cultural group, in Nuremberg, Germany.
