In Germany by assumed IPOB members on his visit to celebrate the new yam festival with them. This has really generated a lot of attention and reactions around the world and on social media platforms especially.
Still, on this issue, the Nigerian minister of information, Lai Mohammed has reacted on the same issue expressing his anger on the Igbos and IPOB for their uncivilized acts according to him.
“The Igbos have really shown that they are not civilized enough even outside of their own country, they still cannot promote peace and order. The recent attack on a Nigerian Igbo senator by the illegal group called IPOB did not only bring disgrace to the senator but a total embarrassment to the country at large.
We have written severally to the government of Germany to fish out those who were involved in the attack but they seem to be in support of this act by dismissing the case and the court insisting it was not an illegal act. So what then is the act called?
IPOB has crossed their boundary this time and we have decided not to be quiet. By this, we are giving the German government fourteen days to probe deeper into this case and fish-out the thugs or face the wrath of the Nigerian government.
We have other German citizens here in our country and this has never happened to them, so it cannot be taken with ease by the Nigerian government” he said
