Senator Ikweremadu in a statement on Saturday, said he was in Numberg, Germany to participate in the Second Annual Cultural Festival and Convention organised by Ndi-Igbo where he was billed to give a keynote address along with the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, who, however could not make it eventually.

The Senator said he was given a resounding welcome by Ndigbo in Germany and everything went smoothly until some men, who identified themselves as IPOB members stormed the venue and began to complain about the killings in the South East, stressing that there would be no Igbo event at the venue.

The erstwhile Deputy Senate President expressed his disappointment over the public assault and attack on his person, but had let go. He said he’s one person who had raised his voice on the floor of the Nigerian Senate against killings in Nigeria.

“Much as I am disappointed in their conduct, especially as I am one of the persons, who have spoken up on justice for Ndigbo, the Python Dance, extra-judicial killings in Igbo land and elsewhere both on the floor of the Senate and in my written and personal engagements with the Presidency as well as rallied the South East Senate Caucus to secure Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s release with Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe taking him on bail to douse tension in the South East, I nevertheless do not hold this to heart against them, for they know not what they do.”
