… Nnia Nwodo next on their “hit” list.
Outrage greeted the assault on the former Senate President, Prof Ike Ekweremadu, CFR by IPOB loyalists in Nuremberg, Germany where he was meant to be a Guest Speaker at the Annual Iri Ji by the Igbo community in that country.
However, the real reasons for the attack are still unfolding. According to information from an impeccable source close to the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the attack on Ekweremadu was premeditated and aimed at destroying all other Igbo leaders, so that Nnamdi Kanu shall be “the Lord of the manor” and a Messiah who Ndigbo shall plead with to be their Moses, leading them to the Promised Land.
hoo!haa!! also learnt that Chief Nnia Nwodo, the Ohaneze President General was next on the IPOB “hit list” of Igbo leaders that need to be shamed and discredited.
The South East Governors are also top on the IPOB list.
Surprisingly, a statement from IPOB’s spokesman, Emmanuel Kanu a. k. a. Emma Powerful stating that the former DSP was attacked for being a traitor and supporting Python Dance seems to confirm the allegation that the attack was born out of a quest to destroy the images of other Igbo leaders leaving the IPOB leader to emerge as the sole Igbo leader “Eze Igbo Gburugburu”
The IPOB statement reads, “Despite repeated warnings, the organizers went on to invite a known traitor, co-conspirator and one of those that worked with Igbo Governors to proscribe and tag IPOB a terror organization while they never raised a voice against murderous Fulani herdsmen”
However, the Deputy Minority Leader, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Toby Okechukwu, who accompanied Ekweremadu on the trip to Germany condemned the Nuremberg show of shame,claiming that IPOB’s allegation against Ekweremadu was illogical.
“The claim by IPOB that they attacked Ekweremadu for instigating Python Dance flies in the face of logic as the distinguished Senator was one of the vocal voices against military siege of the South East as well as the extra judicial crackdown on IPOB protesters. This is a man whose official Guest house was raided by security agents in 2017 in purported search for alleged phantom IPOB arms and ammunition”
Okechukwu also lashed at IPOB for what he termed ingratitude of the highest order
“IPOB’s act is ingratitude of the highest degree, especially given the role which even IPOB admitted in a statement of gratitude that Ekweremadu played back then in securing the release of Nnamdi Kanu”
Recall how IPOB propaganda machinery was deployed in selling the narrative of “Jubril the Sudanese” occupying Aso Rock.
Just before the last Presidential Election, IPOB was at it again, with the story that Atiku Abubakar, the PDP Presidential candidate was a Camerounian, not a Nigerian. That also said like hot akara on a cold harmattan morning.
hoo!haa!! gathered that Kanu was banking on the gullibility of Ndigbo and other Nigerians coupled with rising resentment against political leaders to pull off this latest ambitious gambit.
