German Court Convicts IPOB Members Who Attacked Ekweremadu

Germany has convicted four members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who attacked Ike Ekweremadu, former deputy senate president. They have also served their sentences, TheCable further learnt. The convictions, which were handed out in August, went completely under the radar but diplomatic sources in Germany told us on Friday that the four IPOB members were prosecuted for physical assault and sentenced to 20 days of labour “without pay”. The Nigerian embassy did not immediately respond to TheCable’s inquiry for the identities of the convicts.

German Court Sentence Ghanaian Refugee To Nearly 12 Years For Rape

A court in Germany has sentenced a Ghanaian refugee to nearly 12 years in jail for the campsite rape of a young woman in front of her boyfriend. Eric X, 31, - branded highly dangerous by a psychiatric expert - was handed the 11 year and six month jail term at Bonn State Court. He denied to the end being responsible despite the testimony from an expert saying the chance of someone else's DNA being on the victim was a 30 billion to one chance. And X insulted his victim by saying: 'If the court says the DNA fits, then I have to call the girl a prostitute. Anyone who supports this girl who claims to have been raped is the dirtiest person on earth.' X struck in April this year at a campsite near the city on the Rhine, dragging the 23-year-old woman from the tent she was sharing with her boy...
