Chief Whip of the Senate, Dr Orji Kalu, has described as unfounded, social media reports that he suspended his planned medical check-up to Germany because of what happened to Sen. Ike Ekweremadu.
Kalu disclosed this in a telephone interview with Newsmen on Monday in Abuja.
The Former Governor said since the Senate commenced its recess, he has been in his country home, interacting with his constituents.
Kalu had described the action of the IPOB members as uncivilized, unacceptable and barbaric.
He urged Igbo people to respect their leaders at all levels, noting that the only way the South-East zone can be prosperous was by embracing dialogue, peace and unity.
Recall that the former deputy senate president was physically assaulted in Germany last weekend by some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
