‘Ekweremadu attack a proof that Igbos don’t have kings’ - CLO

Civil Liberties Organization, Anambra State chapter has asked the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to tender unreserved apology to former deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu over Saturday’s attack in Germany.

It noted that the ugly incident was a practical demonstration of the assertion that “Igbos do not have kings.”\


Chairman of the body, Comrade Vincent Ezekwueme, in a statement on Wednesday in Onitsha, described the attack as disgraceful to the Igbo race.

He said, “The attitude of the perpetrators is most despicable, condemnable, barbaric, inhuman and horrendous.

“Ekweremadu is supposed to be applauded, commended and reciprocated considering his sacrifices towards protecting and projecting Igbo interest.”

He insisted that the Igbos in diaspora must learn how to be civil, dynamic, diplomatic and tactful.

According to him, any disagreement with their leaders should be amicably resolved with respect rather than toying the part of violence.


“If they have any disagreement with their political leaders, it must be resolved amicably with respect, corrections, not condemnation or violence.

“Like Chief Odimegwu Ojukwu would say, “Violence is the worst form of irresponsibility,” he added.

Ezekwueme however enjoined the lawmaker to borrow a leaf from what Sen. Robert Thaft did in America by extending love and forgiveness to his attackers.
