The governors said if any Southeast person is attacked anywhere in the world, they shall, by all means, bring Nnamdi Kanu back to Nigeria to face the wrath of the people.
KanyiDaily recalls that Ex-deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremmadu was beaten up and publicly humiliated by suspected IPOB members in Nuremberg, Germany where he had attended the New Yam Festival of Igbo Community over the weekend.
Few minutes after the attack, IPOB claimed responsibility in a press statement released by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful.
This was followed by a radio broadcast by Nnamdi Kanu, who maintained that the South-east governors and selected Igbo politicians “will receive the Ekweremadu treatment any time they are seen in public abroad.”
The Southeast Governors, in a statement signed by its Chairman and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, said should Kanu make his threat real, they would, by all means, repatriate him back to Nigeria to face the wrath of the people.
The governors also said Mr Kanu is fighting for his self-interest “but pretending to be fighting for Ndigbo and would soon be exposed him if he doesn’t retrace his steps.” The statement reads:
“South-East Governors are saddened with the ugly display and dance of shame by IPOB in Germany in attacking one of the finest leaders of Ndigbo, Senator Ike Ekweremmadu. We totally condemn it as we weep for them as they never knew the implication of their naked dance in public.
“We have also noted the empty threats by Mr. Nnamdi Kanu (a former ordinary Member of MASSOB) to attack Governors of South-East, Ohanaeze leadership and other Igbo politicians for not supporting the self-acclaimed supreme leader in his self-fight for the raw power and wealth while pretending to be fighting for Ndigbo.
“We wish to warn that should any Southeast person be attacked anywhere in the world, we shall, by all means, bring back Kanu to Nigeria to face the wrath of our people. It is madness for anyone who wants raw power with no experience to think that we Governors will support the killing of our people giving out our scarce land to herdsmen.
“If Kanu is serious, let him direct IPOB to fight those foreign killer herdsmen in their countries of origin since he claims the IPOB is in over 100 countries in the world.
“If Kanu who was previously in MASSOB but needed power and money wants Biafra and he is the self-acclaimed supreme leader, let him come back home with his army and guns to lead us to battle for the empire he desire to lead other than cheap talks. Soonest Ndigbo will know him better.
“We assure our people that we are doing so much to protect them against killer herdsmen and other insecurity problems. We have also brought kidnapping and cultism in the Southeast to near zero level.
“We are highly committed to the security and well-being of our people and will never be distracted by cheap talks.”
