Exactly two days after the former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu was mobbed in Germany by some members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), the senator returns to Nigeria.
Ekweremadu, on Monday, August 19, as soon as he arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, narrated his experience to newsmen. He said that the IPOB who mobbed him were demanding to know why he didn’t stop the ‘Operation Python Dance’ (a military operation), from coming to the South-East.
The Senator narrated that prior to the attack, he was informed that the place is full and that the mayor of the city where he visited was very cooperative. And the Nigerian ambassador to Germany was also at the venue, so we had to rush down.
“When I got there, I saw a lot of Igbo people who had assembled, so I was excited and I came out of the car because I saw so many people; I wanted to say hello to them. We were exchanging pleasantries.
“So, there were a couple of Igbo people, IPOB and emblems so one of them now accosted and blasted me and said that we didn’t do much when we had python dance (a military operation) in the south-east.” He narrated.
Ekweremadu said he asked that the man exercised patience until he was done exchanging pleasantries before he can attend to his question, “he held my hand and said no, I now removed my hand and started shaking other people. So at that point, the organisers apparently noticed what was going on and wanted to resist them; then the fight ensued.”
Meanwhile, less than two days after the attack of the Senator by the IPOB, the German authorities have begun the deportation of a new batch of Nigerian migrants.
According to reports, the migrants have already left Frankfurt Airport.
