Senate minority leader Enyinnaya Abaribe on Saturday condemned the attack against former Senate Vice President Ike Ekweremadu by members of the indigenous peoples of Biafra, IPOB, in Nuremberg, Germany.

Ekweremadu was to give an opening address at the Second Annual Igbo Festival and Cultural Convention organized by Ndi-Igbo Germany in that city when a mafia, which identified itself as members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), invaded the place to attack it.

In a statement signed personally by the minority leader of the Senate on Sunday, Abaribe said that Ekweremadu does not deserve such shameful treatment by IPOB members while deploying means to rescue Nnamdi Kanu.

Abaribe described the incident as completely sacrilegious and not an agitation in any way.

The statement said: “Obviously, this cannot be not the way to pay a person, that is a leader of men, associate degree unpretentious igbo leader.

“He has given his all even going as far as deploying his means to arrange for the bail of Nnamdi Kanu, not minding the repercussions to his political career.

“It is unfortunate. The perpetrators of the attack should know that as Igbo, we respect elders and reverence our leaders.

“The unwarranted attack is not the character of the Igbo.

“It is most worrisome and even inconceivable that the attackers will choose an auspicious occasion where our people are celebrating and showcasing our rich culture to exhibit such unbecoming and condemnable conduct in the name of agitation.

“No, that was not agitation, no right thinking human will identify with such behaviour.

“Yes, Nigeria is going through a horrendous phase, which is a fault line that her leaders, particularly we the Igbo leaders are engaging others to find a lasting solution to.

“Resorting to mob mentality and venting the spleen on our leaders rather creates a vacuum that will leave our people helpless and confused in the circumstance.”

In summary of Senator Abaribe’s submission, It was Ike Ekweremadu that arrange for Nnamdi kanu’s released from the detention.

The leader of the IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu is yet to speak on the assualt his loyalist melted on Ike Ekweremadu
