Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has on Sunday evening, reacted to the recent attack on the former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, in Nuremberg, Germany, by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), describing the assault as highly unfortunate.
Saraki, who expressed disappointment at the development, tweeted: “I spoke with my brother and friend, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu, yesterday, after hearing about the unfortunate incident in Germany, and I thank God that he is fine and very well.”
“I remember that on Thursday, before departing Nigeria, he visited me and I could see the enthusiasm, excitement, and passion with which he looked forward to meeting Nigerians in Nuremberg, at the 2nd Annual Cultural Festival, particularly after attending a very successful one earlier in the US.”
“The Nuremberg incident was highly unfortunate, and Nigerians at home and in the diaspora need to avoid this kind of unnecessary distraction.”
“This is a time we all have to work together to foster unity and peace in our country.
“I am happy Ike remains unshaking and solid in his belief about a united, strong, and prosperous Nigeria”, Saraki disclosed.
