Threat: Get ready to be sent back home if you attack us outside Nigeria – Governors in Southeast warn Nnamdi Kanu
South-east governors have warned the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, over his threats to attack them and other South-east leaders who travel abroad.
The governors gave this warning while condemning the attack on former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, by some members of the group in Nuremberg, Germany,
In a statement issued on Tuesday night, signed by the Chairman of South-East Governors forum, Governor David Umahi, the governors said should Mr Kanu carry out his threats, they would ensure he is repatriated back to Nigeria “to face the wrath of the people”.
The governors also accused Mr Kanu of 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 read: “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.”
