It described the assault on Senator Ekweremadu as a disgrace .
A statement by Chief Nnia Nwodo , President General of Ohanaeze said , “ The assault on Ekweremadu by Igbos in Germany , described as IPOB , is disappointing , grotesque and dangerous for Igbo solidarity .
“ This violent , rude , impertinent , divisive and discourteous style of IPOB or IPOB -instigated miscreants is damaging to our cause . It strengthens the case of those who describe them as terrorists and weaken our case against the infringement of our fundamental human rights . ”
“ Ekweremadu negotiated the sureties and securities for Nnamdi Kanu ’s release on bail .
He does not deserve this picketing and disgrace . A disgrace to him is a disgrace to Igbo race.
“ Whilst I condemn the attack on our revered son and leader, I call on the law enforcement agencies in Germany to bring to book the perpetrators of this despicable act . It is un- Igbo . It is disgraceful . ”
