Recall that Ekweremadu was attacked by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in Nuremberg, Germany when he honoured an invitation by ‘Ndigbo Germany’.
The attackers stoned Ekweremadu with eggs and tore his cloths.
The incident has generally been condemned by Nigerians and international communities. But the leader of the group, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in his reaction opined that Ekweremadu’s case was a warning to all Igbo leaders in the south-east zone.
