As condemnation has continued to trail the weekend mob attack on the immediate past Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, by angry members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, in Germany , Senator Theodore Orji has described the attack as “anti-Igbo and unjustifiable”.
The former Governor said Ekweremadu did not in anyway deserve such humiliation considering his heroic and patriotic contributions towards the advancement and defense of the Igbo cause.
Senator Orji in a press statement issued by his Media and Legislative Aide, Eddie Onuzurike said such act “runs foul of Igbo tenets of respect for our leaders.”
The statement read in part :”The recent attack on Senator Ike Ekweremadu,the former Deputy Senate President in a foreign Land is objectionable and uncalled for.
“Germany is a civil society, where rule of law prevails, we may be washing our dirty linens in public. Being an international scene,there are accepted ways of protests and showing grievances.
“Physical attack and violence should be out of the options. Those responsible should rethink. ”
Senator Orji who represents Abia Central, therefore, urged Ekweremadu to forgive his attackers and sustain his quest for Igbo advancement, assuring him of the support of the masses of Ndigbo .
