The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has said that IPOB will continue it’s attack on the Igbo leaders in foreign countries until they are satisfied.
Kanu alleged that Nigerian soldiers desecrated the Igbo culture and tradition during the invasion of his father’s palace in Umuahia (Abia State). The IPOB leader blamed the Igbo leaders for the death of more than 600 IPOB members on ‘Operation Python Dance’ which he claimed was planned, instigated and financed by Igbo leaders.
In the press statement titled “Setting the Records Straight...” which was issued on Tuesday, 20th of August 2019, the IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Mr Emma Powerful warned that IPOB will not stop until all the Igbo leaders pay dearly for their sins.
The statement partly reads;
“These men instigated, financed and defended a full-scale bloody military invasion of Biafraland; they tagged Operation Python Dance that led to the torture and untimely death of over 600 Biafrans, 28 of which fell in my compound.
“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.”
