Senator Ekweremadu was in Germany for cultural rites and to celebrate with his ethic group on their new yam festival. An invitation he gladly accepted booked a flight to Germany only for the IPOB ,a group agitating for sovereignty of Biafra attacked the Senator who was instrumental to the release of Kanu Nnamdi.
In his social media page, the senator has made it clear that he was attacked by IPOB . His words “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.”
He continued “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.”
On the restiveness of the IPOB and how he tried to engagement, the Ekweremadu said “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.”
On the rascality of IPOB and how the group has turned to a thing of disappointment. Senator Ekweremadu said “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, 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.”
He concluded by saying that well meaning Nigerians and igbo has contacted him and also registered their displeasure on the actions of IPOB lately. “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.”
