Senate Vice President Senator Ovie Omo-Agege condemned the attack on his predecessor, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, describing him as an affront to Igbo and Nigeria.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by its Special Adviser on Media and Advertising, Mr. Yomi Odunuga, the DSP said the attack was not “just an export of irrationality, but an aggressive international affront against the image of Igbos and Nigeria “.
nigerian latest news reported that Ekweremadu was attacked on Saturday by members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) in Nuremberg, Germany.
Reacting further to the attack, Omo-Agege expressed shock at the undeserved assault and asked police agencies in Germany to investigate and bring everyone involved in the vicious attack.
“Senator Ekweremadu honored the invitation of Patriot Igbos in Germany who wanted him to deliver an opening address at the event organized to commemorate the New Yam Festival.
“But some aggressively rude elements kidnapped the effort to carry out a shameful attack that seeks to deepen the representation of the members of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) as enemies of democratic norms and values.
“What they did is not only a violent assault against the good image of the Igbo race worldwide, but an aggressive attack against the traditional norms of a people known for being hardworking and respectful of the significant contributions of leaders such as Senator Ekweremadu “.
“Such disappointing physical abuse also ignores the democratic background of Senator Ekweremadu and his long-standing commitment to the cause of his people. But, as he has said for the usual breadth of his indulgent heart, these people do not know what they do.
“Such a criminal attack, along with another antisocial attempt to accuse, condemn and lynch any person remains totally condemnable and illegal, even though it takes place in Nigerian or foreign territory, since it is the easiest invitation to anomie,” said Senator Omo-Agege. .
