Attack On Ekweremadu Despicable, Says Senator Adeola Yayi

Senator Solomon Adeola (APC, Lagos West) on Tuesday described as despicable act,  the attack on former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu in Nuremberg, Germany by some persons identified as members of the banned Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB.

The chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance regretted that such attack on a foreign soil on a serving public official demean and derogate Nigeria and Nigerians on the international scene stressing that those behind the attacks have greatly contributed to negative perception of Nigerians in Diaspora.

“I totally condemn the physical attack on the former deputy senate president for its barbarity. It is an attack on the institution of Parliament, on the Igbo race and indeed Nigeria. 

"It is good all reasonable socio cultural groups and personalities from South East are distancing themselves from this odious and shameful act,” Senator Adeola stated in a release by Chief Kayode Odunaro;  his Media Adviser.

The senator also called on relevant agencies of government and Nigeria Diplomatic Corp in Germany to get to the root of the violent attack and ensure that perpetrators of the act are brought to book at the earliest opportunity.
