The Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday condemned the attack on the former Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu in Germany.The BoT, in a statement by its Chairman, Sen. Walid Jibrin and Secretary, Sen Adolphus Wabara, categorically declared that the attack was unjustified.
It will be recalled that Ekweremadu was physically assaulted on Saturday, by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), when he invited as a guest speaker at the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival in Nuremberg, Germany.
Condemning what it calls unwarranted attack, the BoT said, “the attack was totally uncalled for, unacceptable and unjustified.
According to the statement, “We therefore call on the federal government to address the issues that led to this attack.
“Sen. Ike Ekweremadu is a Nigerian that did not deserve that wicked treatment.”
The BoT, however, expressed their sympathy with Ekweremadu and his family.
