EKWEREMADU SAYS NIGERIANS ARE FREE TO TRAVEL DESPITE ATTACK ON HIM

By Chioma Johnson
Former Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, says he was calm over the attack on him by members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra IPOB, in Nuremberg, Germany at the weekend.

Ekweremadu said this in a statement by his media aide Uche Anichukwu after his arrival in Abuja.

He advised Nigerians, especially Igbo leaders, to feel free to travel to any part of the world, maintaining that the attitude of his assailants did not represent the dispositions and behavior of Nigerians in the diaspora.

The Former Deputy Senate President said, his attackers were misdirected and misguided, also believing they were under the influence of alcohol. He reiterated that such unpatriotic actions do not represent the feelings of the Igbo people.

According to the lawmaker, the organizers of the event -Igbo In Germany, have written a letter of apology for what happened. He added that “everybody is free to go anywhere because those ones don’t represent the behavior of Nigerians abroad”.

Ekweremadu said the government and authorities of Germany are free to do whatever they wish about the incident. Reacting on IPOB’s alleged threats to attack more Igbo leaders, especially the governors of the South East, Ekweremadu recalled that the South-East leaders facilitated Nnamdi Kanu’s bail and would, therefore, leave him to his conscience. He said he is hopeful that the IPOB leader would not go to the extent of attacking any of the South-East leaders.
