The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has called on German authorities to identify those behind the attack of Senator Ike Ekweremadu at an event in Nuremberg, Germany.
Making the call via a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media, Ola Awoniyi, Senator Lawan condemned the ‘shameful’ attack on the former deputy Senate President.
Counter-reacting to the the purported reason cited by the mob for the bewildering attack, Senator Lawan stressed that it was incredibly absurd for anybody to blame Ike Ekweremadu for the violent criminal activities in his region
He therefore urged Nigerians to always reflect deeply before embarking on a course of action and advised youths to air whatever grievances they have, along the lines prescribed by law.
It would be recalled that Senator Ekweremadu was to give a keynote address at the Second Igbo Annual Cultural Festival and Convention organised by Ndi-Igbo Germany in Nuremberg, when a mob, which identified itself as members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), invaded the venue and attacked him.
