Ndi-Igbo Germany, a body of Igbo people resident in Germany, has tendered an apology to Senator Ike Ekweremadu over the recent attack on him by IPOB members in Nuremberg, Germany.
Special Assistant to Ekweremadu on Media, Uche Anichukwu, in a statement, said that an embarrassment on the lawmaker was an embarrassment to the entire Igbo people and Nigeria. He vowed to ensure that the law runs its full course.
Our apologies to Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo and to all well-meaning Igbo-Diasporan groups and associations both at home and abroad for this disgrace.
We sincerely apologize to the National Assembly and indeed to our entire country for such an unwarranted assault on Senator Ike Ekweremadu by the IPOB members in Germany.
Let this event be a rallying call to all Umu Igbo at home and worldwide to always seek unity rather than primitively turning against ourselves in senseless violence which will make neutral and friendly global nations turn away from us.Uche Anichukwu – today.ng
