In a quick response to the dastardly attack on former Deputy Senate President and current senator of the federal Republic of Nigeria Senator Ike Ekweremadu in Nuremberg, Germany, The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa has condemned the act in its entirety describing it as an embarrassment to Nigeria as a nation.
Senator Ekweremadu who was attending as a speaker/special guest of honor at the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival held in
Nuremberg, Germany organized by the Ndi-Igbo in Germany community was reportedly beaten up and egged publicly.
A statement personally Signed the NIDCOM Boss stated that some of the culprits who perpetrated the act have been apprehended while calling on the German government and law enforcement agencies to ensure that there are consequences for those behind the act.
In her words, “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 better cooperation between German and Nigerian businesses, ended
up in such a disgraceful manner.”
” We appeal to Nigerians to be of good behavior wherever they find themselves because such
incidents tarnish the image of the country.”
As at the time of filling this report, it was not still clear the reason that necessitated the action.
