Shehu Sani, a former senator, has condemned the assault on the former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, by members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Nuremberg, Germany.
In a post on his official Twitter handle on Saturday, Sani who represented Kaduna Central in the Eighth Senate, stated that the attack was ”unreservedly condemned.”
He added that ”IPOB spanked the wrong horse with the wrong whip on the wrong track.”
He wrote: “The attack on Senator Ekweremadu in Germany stands unreservedly condemned.
“Whatever is the political or philosophical agenda of the people that attacked him, the strategy of physical assault or violence cannot lead them to success.”
The immediate past Deputy President of the Senate, Enweremadu, was physically assaulted by some members of IPOB in Germany, on Saturday, while he was attending the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival organised by the Ndi-Igbo Germany community.
