Some members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, in Nuremberg, Germany have attacked the former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
The Senator, who gave the account of the event on his social media handle however, assured Ndigbo and his supporters across the nation that he is safe.
Narrating the incident, Ekweremadu said he was attending the Second Annual Cultural Festival and Convention organised by Ndi-Igbo Germany in Nurnberg where he 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.
Ekweremadu said he has received thousands of solidarity calls and messages from well-meaning Ndigbo. He said he has also spoken with the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany, Ambassador Yusuf Tuggar.
