Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has responded to the call by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the arrest and prosecution of those involved in the attack on Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Mr. Kanu said that even though the attack on Ekweremadu had been ruled non-criminal by the German Government, APC and PDP were still blinded by the oncoming storm.
The popular revolt against Ekweremadu has been ruled non-criminal by German govt, yet Fulani apologists (both APC & PDP) are still blinded to the gathering storm that will soon envelop them.

Ike Ekweremadu was accused by IPOB of conspiring with the Federal Government to proscribe the group in the South-East and the killing of its followers.
The accusation was followed by a physical assault on the lawmaker in Germany, where he was attending a cultural event organized by the Ndi-Igbo Germany Community.
