Federal Government Reacts on Attack on Ike Ekweremadu in Germany
The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has criticized the attack on the former deputy senate president, Senator Ike Ekweremadu at the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival held in Nuremberg, Germany.
Senator Ekweremadu, who was a special guest of honour at the event organised by the Ndi-igbo Germany community was reportedly beaten up and disgraced in public.
Dabiri-Erewa in a statement disclosed on Saturday stated that the incident as an embarrassment to the country.
She added that some of the miscreant who participated in the act had been arrested and urge the German government and law enforcement agencies to ensure they faced the consequences of their actions.
The NIDCOM boss stated, “It is also shamefully pathetic that an event which was nobly put together by the Ndi-Igbo community in Germany whose members make up the majority of Nigerians living in Germany, to amongst other things provide a forum for the Diasporans and various stakeholders to network and to facilitate a better cooperation between German and Nigerian businesses, ended up in such a disgraceful manner.”
