A German court has convicted four supporters of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who assaulted former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu.
Recall that the founders of the secessionist party in Nuremberg defeated Ekweremadu at an event organised by “Ndigbo Germany” in 2019.
In August 2020, the four IPOB participants were arrested for physical abuse and sentenced “without pay” to 20 days of labor, but it went totally under the radar.
As claimed on social media, no IPOB member was deported, but it was discovered that two of the attackers lodged an appeal against their prosecution but later withdrawn it. Attacks on organs and officials of foreign nations are punished by fines and incarceration under Section 102(1), Chapter 3, of the German Penal Code.
A source told The Cable;
It was just the four named people who were sentenced without pay to 20 days of labour. There were no sponsors listed, but they were not charged.
While Ekweremadu was able to initiate a civil lawsuit against the perpetrators, the publication was told by a source close to him that he had little involvement in the topic even though he was aware of the conviction.
