The Federal Government, through the Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has condemned the attack on the former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, in Nuremberg, Germany, describing the incident as an embarrassment to Nigeria.
Recall, that TOS TV had reported that Senator Ekweremadu, who was attending the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival as a Speaker and Special Guest of Honour at the event organised by the Ndi-Igbo Germany community, was attacked and publicly humiliated in Nuremberg, Germany.
Reacting however, in a statement on Saturday, August 17, Dabiri-Erewa described the incident as an embarrassment to Nigeria.
She disclosed that some of the culprits who perpetrated the act had been apprehended, and called on the German government and law enforcement Agencies, to ensure they face the consequences of their actions.
“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 among 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.”
Dabiri-Erewa, appealed to Nigerians to be of good behaviour wherever they find themselves, “because such incidents tarnish the image of the country”.
