Human rights lawyer, Femi Aborisade backs IPOB attack on Ekweremadu

Human rights lawyer, Femi Aborisade has stated that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, were right to question former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, in what led to an attack in Germany.

The attack which took place at a New Yam festival organized by the Igbo community in Germany, saw IPOB members questioning why Ekweremadu was partying while fulani herdsmen were raping and killing his people back in Nigeria.

Reacting to the attack, Femi Aborisade stated that IPOB had the right to question Ekweremadu.

He said: “My perception of the video that I watched showed that they were asking him questions, and Nigerians, anywhere they are, have the right to ask questions from their leaders either former or current. The reason was to get clarification on issues and for them to justify their actions. There is no offense in that.

“They were only asking that he should justify his statement, position, and attitude towards supporting the proscription of the IPOB. There is no attack. It is an issue of asking questions.

“It is a lesson to all current public office holders because one time or the other, all those that are depriving us democratic rights today will answer for a crime against humanity,”
