Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has condemned the attack on the former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, by members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB  in Germany.

The immediate past Deputy President of the Senate, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu was physically assaulted by some IPOB members, in Nuremberg, Germany, on Saturday.

Dabiri-Erewa in a statement shared on her official twitter handle @abikedabiri described the incident as a disgrace and a shameful act.

She stated that some of the culprits who perpetrated the act had been apprehended and called on the German government and law enforcement agencies to ensure they faced the consequences of their actions.

The tweet read, “I condemn in its entirety the attack on former DSP Ike Ekeremadu at an event in Nuremberg, Germany, nobly put together by Ndi Igbo Germany. where he was attacked. I hope the culprits, some of whom have been arrested, will face consequences for their shamefully pathetic actions.”

The ICIR had earlier reported the attack on Ekweremadu alongside video where he was violently questioned over his alleged conspiracy with the Federal Government to proscribe the IPOB in the South East and killing several of its members.
