GERMAN police authorities-Landespolizie- in Nürnberg, Germany has disclosed that no arrest has been made in connection with the Saturday attack on Ike Ekwereadu, the former Deputy Senate President, despite the claim of the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa.

The NDIC boss had described the incident as “shameful pathetic” and had earlier claimed in a tweet that some of the protesters are in police custody.

Ekweremadu, who represents Enugu West in the Senate, was in Nürnberg for the New Yam when some aggrieved members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) attacked him.

The police authorities, however, has dismissed the attack as “just a protest” and said no arrest was made and didn’t have plans of making any future arrest.

“There was nothing much about this senator from Nigeria that came. About 30 persons demonstrated against him and the police were called and they called the situation down and the senator drove away in his car.

“Nothing happened, so there is not going to be any arrests. No arrests were made, nothing. No police investigation will be carried out in relations to the chaos,” said a police press officer in Nürnberg.
