A pan-African students’ movement, the Progressive Students Movement (PSM), has asked the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to apologise to Sen. Ike Ekweremadu after Saturday’s attack in Germany.
The group described the attack as global embarrassment which the proscribed IPOB must tender an unreserved apology for.
The group’s president, Bestman Okereafor, said this in a statement made available to newsmen in Enugu.
Okereafor said: “Information at our disposal reveals that distinguished Sen. Ekweremadu had honoured the Second Annual Cultural Festival and Convention organised by Ndi-Igbo Germany in Nuremberg on Saturday only to get attacked by some unpatriotic Nigerians residing in Germany.
“PSM considers the attack on Sen. Ekweremadu in Germany as a global embarrassment to our beloved country.
“It is however on record and worthy of note that Sen. Ekweremadu remains a leading figure among a few other Igbo senators who have consistently spoken against the unfortunate killings and kidnappings in Nigeria as a whole.”
“We call on all Ndigbo both at home and in the Diaspora to remain peaceful, hardworking, united and loving as this remains the core values of the Ndigbo, in our quest for a united and peaceful Nigeria,’’ he added.
