Senator Orji Uzor Kalu condemns attack on Senator Ike Ekweremadu


The Senate Chief Whip, Orji Kalu has condemned the attack on the former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu by some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in Germany.

Senator Ekweremadu was to give a keynote address at the Second Igbo Annual Cultural Festival and Convention organised by Ndi-Igbo Germany in that city when a mob, which identified itself as members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), invaded the venue to attack the senator.

Reacting to the incident, Kalu, a former Abia State governor, described the act as uncivilized, unacceptable and barbaric.

In a statement signed by his media office, Kalu urged the people of the South-East to respect leaders at all levels.

Kalu appealed to the Embassy of Nigeria in Germany and the German government to ensure that those behind the act were made to face the law.
