According to Achionye, IPOB has gradually lost the consciousness as defender of Igbos, now ranking as a violent group capable of carrying arms in the nearby future
“It is sucidal and foolishness that someone will never participates in assualt proposed by him against President Buhari in Japan, and directs gullible Igbo youths to risk jail in Japan and repatriation, while he enjoys in London.
“Asia countries are not like Europe were someone will engage in activities against a visiting African President without heavy sanction and punishment by the host country. So, we call on Igbos staying in Japan to remember that Igbos are not traditionally violent people and will never identify with terrorism”,it read.
In the release, the group disassociatted itself from what it termed rented crowd led by an Enugu lawmaker that welcomed Ekweremadu at the Akanu Indian International Airport in Enugu.
“We wish to disassociate ourselves from the rented crowd that received Ike Ekweremadu at Enugu airport. Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide observed that a desperate Enugu lawmaker from Ezeagu local government area who is a stooge of Ekweremadu in Enugu state house of assembly went to Onitsha main market and Obete Enugu market to persuade touts and beggers to masquerade as Ohanaeze youths to give the impression that Igbo Youths give Ekweremadu a rousing welcome.
“But contrary to his expectations, he was betrayed by lack of communication skills exhibited by a 60 years old man parading himself as a youth leader. Though, we still condemn the attack on Ekweremadu in Germany, but we are not involved in the decitful outing. We will sanction the lawmaker appropriately”, he added.
