The violent attack on former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, by persons said to be members of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) in Nuremberg, Germany, is not only a dastardly exportation of irrationality but an aggressive international affront against the image of Igbos and Nigeria, Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has said.

In a press release issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Yomi Odunuga on Sunday, Senator Omo-Agege expressed shock over what he described as an undeserved assault and called on law enforcement agencies in Germany to investigate and bring to book all those involved in the vicious attack.

He said: “Senator Ekweremadu honoured the invitation of patriotic Igbos in Germany who wanted him to deliver a keynote address at the event organised to commemorate the New Yam Festival but some aggressively discourteous elements hijacked the effort to perpetrate a disgraceful assault that seeks to deepen the portrayal of members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as enemies of democratic norms and values in which the majority must always have its way after the minority must have had its due say in all matters.

“What they did is not only a violent assault against the good image of the Igbo race across the world but an aggressive attack against the traditional norms  of a people known to be hardworking and respectful of meaningful contributions by leaders such as Senator Ekweremadu.

“Such disappointing physical abuse also grossly disregards Senator Ekweremadu’s democratic antecedents and his longstanding commitment to the cause of his people. But, as he has said out of the usual largeness of his forgiving heart, these people know not what they do.

“Such criminal attack, along with other anti-social attempt to accuse, condemn and lynch anyone remains utterly condemnable and illegal, notwithstanding whether it takes place on Nigerian or foreign soil as it is the easiest invitation to anomie.”
