Dabiri-Erewa Condemns Attack On Senator Ike Ekweremadu in Nuremberg, Germany

The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa has condemned in its entirety, the
attack on the former deputy senate president and current serving senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Senator Ike Ekweremadu at the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival held in Nuremberg, Germany.

Senator Ekweremadu who was attending as a speaker/special guest of honor at the event organized by the Ndi-igbo Germany community was reportedly beaten up and egged publicly.

Dabiri-Erewa in a statement said the incident is an embarrassment to the country.

According to reliable sources, some of the culprits who perpetrated the act have been
apprehended, the diaspora commission therefore called on the German government and law enforcement agencies to ensure
that there are consequences for the actions of the perpetrators.

The statement also described the incident as shamefully pathetic in 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, but which ended in such a disgraceful manner.

The diaspora commission chairperson appealed to Nigerians to be of good behavior wherever they find themselves because such incidents tarnish the image of the country.
