Ike Ekweremadu: Attack in Germany’s Nuremberg

Ekweremadu was the victim of a violent attack on August 17, 2019, while attending the Second Annual Cultural Festival and Convention held by Ndi-Igbo Germany in Nuremberg.

Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) stormed the event’s location and started questioning Ekweremadu about the killings of Igbos during the Nigerian army’s Operation Crocodile Smile and Python Dance.

They also questioned Ekweremadu regarding his alleged involvement in the ban on IPOB in Nigeria. Ekweremadu was forcibly dragged from the arena, attacked, and spat upon as the scene quickly deteriorated. Later on, he would declare that he had left the scene unharmed.

Nnamdi Kanu, the head of IPOB, called the attack on Ekweremadu a “polite warning” and forewarned other Igbo governors of potential treatment along the same lines.

The four suspects were detained, found guilty of assault, and given a 20-day sentence of hard labour without the possibility of a fine.

Ike Ekweremadu: The Peter Obi Controversy

Nigerians have criticized former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu on Twitter for claiming that the South-East region will not support Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi in the 2023 election.

Atiku Abubakar’s former running mate for president in the People’s Democratic Party’s general elections of 2019 was Obi, a former governor of Anambra State. Atiku is also the PDP’s nominee for president in 2023.

Until a few months before the PDP presidential primary election, the former governor was a member of the party. He then defected to the LP, citing some irregularities in his former party.

Many Nigerians, particularly young people in the South, think that Obi will bring down both the APC and the PDP in 2023, but Ekweremadu took a different tack on Wednesday, claiming that the South East will support the PDP because of Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, who is widely thought to be of Igbo descent.

Despite the fact that Ekweremadu expressed his opinion soon after Okowa was named Atiku’s running mate, the video resurfaced on social media on Wednesday and became popular.

Although the media outlet Ekweremadu spoke with is unknown, a female voice could be heard in the YouTube video.

“I promise you, the South East will vote for the People Democratic Party,” Ekweremadu declared (PDP). I promise you that. Peter Obi is undoubtedly our son, but you need to be engaging. You should consider if Peter has a chance of winning the presidency. The East cannot afford to waste their votes. When it comes to issues affecting our people, our kids, and our future, can we really afford to be sentimental? No

“We don’t want to do anything that we’ll later regret. Therefore, the reason we think Peter is well qualified is that we think PDP has the key to our people’s future. Therefore, as leaders, we must make that choice. With our folks seated, I will explain...

“Okowa, of course, is one of us, so there is no difference between Okowa and Peter in terms of protecting the interest of the South. So we will go and give the people of the South East that opportunity.”
