Four members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) were in August, prosecuted for assaulting a former deputy Senate president, Mr Ike Ekweremadu, and sentenced to 20 days of labour without pay by a German court.
Reports obtained by Obinwannem News reveals that convicted IPOB members, who had since served their sentence, were not deported as was earlier rumoured.
Recall that Ekweremadu was in 2019, attacked by some Biafra agitators, in Nuremberg at an event organised by the Ndi-Igbo Germany association for its Iri-ji (traditional festival).
As the video went viral on social media, a follow up condemnation by members of the National Assembly gave the attcak a different narrative.
Meanwhile, IPOB described the attack as a warning to those engaged in selling the collective interest of the Nd’Igbo to Fulani caliphate.
Following calls by the Nigerian embassy on German federal authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice, the attackers were later identified by the Bavaria police in August, 2019.
Obinwannem News also learnt that Ekweremadu conceived a civil case against the IPOB members, but has yet to do so.
