The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, has disclosed that revolution has begun in Igboland, following the attack on the former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, in Germany.
The group, warned that Igbo Leaders are in danger of suffering the same fate as Ekweremadu, who was attacked by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in Nuremberg, Germany, on Saturday, August, 17.

In a statement signed by its President General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the Youth Council said that the attack indicates that revolution has started in Igboland.
“We have watched keenly the recent harassment and assualt on the immediate past Deputy Senate President, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu, at the New Yam Festival, at Nuremberg, Germany.
“We see the attack as a calculated plot to destroy the elite conspiracy theories and concepts, and instill disciplinary actions against Igbo Leaders by suspected Biafra agitators, who feel that our Leaders brought the current ordeal Igbos are facing in Nigeria.
“We condemned vehemently the introduction of mob action against Igbo Leaders, as this is a wrong precedence that should be condemned.
“We believe that there are likely more targeted Igbo Leaders on their lists, who may face the consequences of failed leadership in the South-East, but Ekweremadu’s assault is contrary to igbo norms and values, and should be condemned vehemently by all Stakeholders.
“From intelligence report, revolution has begun in Igboland, Igbo Leaders should be careful, they are no longer safe across the globe.
“This assault on Ekweremadu was to test run on what is likely to happen to other marked Leaders, if this ugly trend remained unchecked, it will be bring doom to Igbo leadership.
“We have it on good authority that similar attacks have been lined up for South-East Governors, Senators, and other Igbo Leaders, any time they undertake trips abroad.
“They should therefore, be cautious while embarking on such trips, to avoid suffering similar fate.
“In the meantime, we call for cease fire on violence against Igbo Leaders, but urge that South-East political Leaders find a means to make peace between all the Stakeholders in the South-East, especially the youths and agitators”, the group stated.
