UK Group Condemn Attack On Ekweremadu***Says We Won’t Condone Attack On Igbo Leaders




A United Kingdom-based pro Igbo group known as the Divine Mandate International (DMI), has condemned the recent attack  on former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.

The group, while  reacting to the assult of the Senator said that it will not tolerate any sort of intimidation on leaders from the southeast region anywhere in the world by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

In an open letter to Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi, signed by the group’s chairman, Nick Nwokporo, alongside Francis Kalu and Bartholomew Aleke, its secretary and spokesman respectively, the DMI decried the recent attack on Ekweremadu, in strong terms.

Describing the assault by IPOB members as shameful, the DMI challenged the outlawed group to come up with its threats, adding that it will work with UK authorities to make sure the culprits are dealt with.

The letter said: “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 as 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 it’s affiliate organisations 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 leaders when visiting the UK or wherever

Neither will we ignore any threats to your safety when visiting the UK. Please continue your good works and be rest assured of our continued support. May your good heart not be poisoned by threats from people of no standing.”
