From the videos uploaded by IPOB Members, Ekweremadu was invited by residents celebrating NEW YAM FESTIVAL. But IPOB members in the locality invaded the venue and attacked a Special Guest.
What IPOB did was tactless, immature and uncalled for. Ekweremadu aside being a top legislator has no conflict with IPOB.
This illegal act by IPOB will alert other Igbo groups hosting events in foreign land. The consequences will not be funny.
Nobody expects IPOB to apologise because such would be expecting too much. But they messed up big time.
For those who ask why he attended the New Yam festival in Germany. He was invited and new yam festival is celebrated in Igbo and all over the world. Was it not new yam festival that Tambuwal left Sokoto to attend in Imo?
