Four Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Germany has been convicted for attacking a former duty Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu
The IPOB had been prosecuted for assaulting the senator from Enugu State and sentenced to 20 days of labour without pay in August
Ekweremadu had in 2019 been beaten up by some Biafra agitators in Nuremberg at an event organised by the Ndi-Igbo Germany association for its Iri-ji (traditional festival).
The video of the attack, which went viral on social media, was condemned by members of the National Assembly.
But the IPOB described the attack as a warning to “those engaged in selling (the Igbo’s) collective interest to Fulani caliphate”.
However, the attackers were later identified by the Bavaria police in August 2019, following calls by the Nigerian embassy on German federal authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice.
