Senate President,Ahmad Lawan has reacted to the recent attack on former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu in Nuremberg, Germany.
According to Lawan;
“It is incredibly absurd for anybody to blame the distinguished Senator for the violent criminal activities in his home base, the purported reason cited by the mob for the bewildering attack.
“Senator Ekweremadu, like all his distinguished colleagues in the Ninth Assembly of the Senate, is concerned about the insecurity and other challenges in that area and other parts of Nigeria. Senator Ekweremadu has also been at the forefront of the patriotic efforts to find lasting solutions to the challenges.
“The barbaric attack on Senator Ekweremadu at a forum to which he was invited to contribute to charting a course for the progress and happiness of Ndigbo debase our values as civilised people. It is most reprehensible and should be condemned by all right-thinking Nigerians,” Lawan said.
Lawan went on to urge the German authorities to identify those involved in the despicable act so that the law can take its course against them.
To Senator Ekweremadu, Lawan urged him not to let the incident stop him from serving the people and Nigerians in general.
