Legal practitioner and lawyer to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB), Vincent Obeta, has denounced the attack on former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu by IPOB members in Germany.

Ekweremmadu who was in Nuremberg to attend a function he was invited, had some men swoop on him and attacked him mercilessly. The group has since claimed responsibility and further threatened to attack Southeast governors and other Igbo leaders anywhere abroad.

Obeta, spoke spoke in Enugu, where he said Ekweremadu played a vital role during his struggle for Kanu’s release from detention in Abuja.

He noted that when he secured Kanu’s bail from the Magistrates’ and High Courts, he envisaged it would be difficult for Kanu to be released despite the court order but most Igbo leaders he called did not listen to him, hence he approached Ekweremadu.

Obeta said: “Once I got the bails at the Magistrates’ and High Court, it was obvious that the Federal Government would not release Nnamdi Kanu or obey the court judgment in that respect. I became very frustrated and resorted to Igbo leaders but most of the persons I reached out to did not listen to me until I contacted Ekweremadu and he agreed to help.”
