Dabiri-Erewa labels attack on Ekweremadu ‘Embarrassment To The Country’

The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has condemned the attack on the former deputy senate president, Senator in Germany, describing it as an ’embarrassment to the country’.

Her statement late on Saturday, comes on the heels of the clips trending the internet of an attack on the 57-year-old who is a serving Senator.

Dabiri-Erewa said the Senator was attending the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival in Nuremberg as a speaker/special guest of honour when he was reportedly beaten up.

“The incident is an embarrassment to the country,” she said.

Further describing the incident as ‘shamefully pathetic’, she called on the German government and its law enforcement agencies to apprehend those who carried out the attack.

She called on Nigerians to be of good behavior wherever they find themselves because such incidents tarnish the image of the country.
