The Divine Mandate International (DMI) a pro-Igbo group in the United Kingdom, has challenged the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) over their recent activities.
In an open letter to Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State, the DMI said it would not tolerate any attack on Igbo leaders anywhere in the world, that the UK is not Germany.
The letter, which was signed by the group’s Chairman, Nick Nwokporo alongside Francis Kalu and Bartholomew Aleke, further stated that it would work with authorities in the UK to make sure that members of IPOB who engaged in criminal acts are dealt with.
We the entire members of DMI, UK, totally condemn and repudiate in its entirety, the shameful attack on Senator Ike Ekweremadu by IPOB group in Germany. We also challenge the threat to our Igbo leaders posted by the group and their sponsors.
We, therefore, wish to reiterate our unalloyed support and faith in you and other Igbo leaders. The actions of IPOB are barbaric, disgraceful and uninformed. We will cooperate with relevant authorities to ensure that the miscreants and their supporters anywhere face the full weight of the law.
Additionally, we are working with our UK authorities and Ohaneze UK and its affiliated organizations to weed out such actions. The UK can never be Germany. Your Excellency sir, we will not tolerate any intimidation on you or any other Igbo leader when visiting the UK or wherever …Nick Nwokporo – legit.ng
