BREAKING: Attack on Amaechi: N’Delta Youths Give IPOB 7 Days To Apologize Or Risk Destruction Of Igbo Property

SAHARANEWS – Following the recent attack on Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, a professional group, Concerned Youths of Niger Delta (CYND) have given a seven-day ultimatum to Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to apologize to Amaechi over the group’s recent attack on him in Madrid, Spain.

SaharaNews recalls that Amaechi was attacked by a group of IPOB members in Madrid, while attending a climate change conference in the country.

Confirming the incident, Amaechi said: “I was attacked by a few misguided Nigerians while on national assignment at a climate change event in Madrid, Spain. They were quickly repelled by the Spanish Police before they could do any harm. I am fine, I was not hurt. Thanks for your support and prayers”.

However, the youths drawn from the core six Niger Delta states of Rivers, Bayelsa, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Cross River and Edo, described the attack as “national embarrassments,” and threatened to destroy Igbo property especially in Ikwere dominated areas of Rivers State.

Speaking to newsmen at the end of their emergency meeting on the matter in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital at the weekend, the National Coordinator of the group, Commander Chikaru Oronda Ndamati, warned IPOB against venting their anger on Amaechi and other national leaders over their personal grievances.

In his words,

“The IPOB should remember that all the Igbos in South-South have and do businesses in Rivers state particularly in Ikwere land, which happens to be Mr. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi’s ethnic nationality.

“We are going to destroy all the Igbo properties in Ikwere land and Niger Delta if they try it again. Ikwere ethnic nationality has four Local Government Areas in Rivers state including Port Harcourt City, Obio Akpor, Emohua and Ikwere Echie Local Governments.

“Having accepted the responsibility of the attack on Amaechi in Spain, IPOB should also be ready to take full responsibility for any reaction that will come out from their dastardly act if IPOB fails to tender apology within seven days.”

Other youths’ leaders who signed the communiqué at the end of the meeting include state coordinators Comrade Effiong Abang (Akwa Ibom); Hon. Ubong Stephens (Cross River); General Mike Gibson Saware (Bayelsa); Comrade Clement Okarevu (Delta and Comrade Nosa Momoh (Edo).

The group, therefore, urged the Federal Government “to take the matter before the international community to compel world leaders to always beef up security around Nigerian leaders on foreign trips”.

Besides, the youths asked the presidency to impress on the Spanish authorities to extradite those arrested for such securities breach in Spain for trial in Nigeria.

    This idiots should be reminded that ikwere is not one of the tribes that make up Nigeria but rather a clan. And also there is nothing like Niger Delta as a tribe. Their treat is a treat of an ant. Without the igbos in Eastern Nigeria,the Hausa and Yeruba will swallow the rest or rather make the so called south south their slaves and that is why they are brainwashing them to disengage them from the core Igbo so that they can have their way. The igbos will once again greet them good afternoon in the morning as Ojukwu did to the foolish Saro wiwa.
