South-East Governors have issued a stern warning to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) over his threats to attack them and other South-East leaders abroad.
The Governors, in a statement on Tuesday night, 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 statement was signed by its chairman and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi.
Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, was on Saturday assaulted in Nuremberg Germany by IPOB members where he was invited as a keynote speaker at the occasion of the annual new yam festival and convention of Ndigbo in Germany.
Kanu, via broadcast on Radio Biafra, praised the attack and threatened that the same fate would befall Igbo politicians “any time they are seen in public abroad.”
He also placed an N1 million bounty for the governors’ itinerary.
However, the governors said 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.
”They said: “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.”
