I was attacked by IPOB in Germany – Senator Ike Ekweremadu, states reason

I was attacked by IPOB in Germany – Senator Ike Ekweremadu, states reason

Ike Ekweremadu, Senator representing Enugu West Senatorial has confirmed that he was attacked by some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) at the Second Annual Cultural Festival and Convention organised by Ndi-Igbo Germany in Nurnberg, Germany. 

The former Deputy Senate President of Nigeria revealed that shortly after he arrived the venue and was given a resounding welcome by organizers of the event in Germany, some IPOB members stormed the venue complaining about the killings in the South East and also insisted that there would be no Igbo event at the venue.

Ike Ekweremadu said he had to leave the venue of the event after the IPOB members became unruly when he tried to engage them. He however added that he was disappointed in their conduct as he has always spoken against the extra-judicial killings in Igbo land and elsewhere both on the floor of the Senate and in written and personal engagements with the Presidency.

The lawmaker also disclosed that he rallied the South East Senate Caucus to secure Nnamdi Kanu’s release with Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe taking him on bail to douse tension in the South East. 

The statement he released reads in full; 

I Was Attacked by IPOB in Germany

I attended the Second Annual Cultural Festival and Convention organised by Ndi-Igbo Germany in Nurnberg today where I was billed to give a keynote address along with the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, who, however could not make it eventually.

I was given a resounding welcome by Ndigbo in Germany and everything went smoothly until some men, who identified themselves as IPOB members stormed the venue and began to complain about the killings in the South East, stressing that there would be no Igbo event at the venue.

I tried to engage them, but when they became unruly, I had to leave the venue. The organisers also invited the police and I was accompanied out of the venue.

Much as I am disappointed in their conduct, especially as I am one of the persons, who have spoken up on justice for Ndigbo, the Python Dance, extra-judicial killings in Igbo land and elsewhere both on the floor of the Senate and in my written and personal engagements with the Presidency as well as rallied the South East Senate Caucus to secure Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s release with Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe taking him on bail to douse tension in the South East, I nevertheless do not hold this to heart against them, for they know not what they do.

I have received thousands of solidarity calls and messages from well meaning Ndigbo and Nigerians. I want to assure them that I am hale and hearty. I have also spoken with the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany, Ambassador Yusuf Tuggar.
