Official, Enyinnaya Abaribe, has denounced the assault on previous Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, by supposed individuals from the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra in Nuremberg, Germany, on Saturday.
In an announcement on Sunday, the Senate Minority Leader depicted the occurrence as inexcusable and totally offensive.
He stated, "Clearly this isn't the way to reimburse a man, an extraordinary pioneer of men, an unassuming Igbo pioneer.
"He has given his everything notwithstanding going similarly as sending his way to orchestrate the bail of Nnamdi Kanu, not disapproving of the repercussions to his political profession.
"It is sad. The culprits of the assault should realize that as Igbo, we regard seniors and love our pioneers.
"The ridiculous assault isn't the character of the Igbo.
"It is most troubling and even incomprehensible that the assailants will pick a propitious event where our kin are celebrating and displaying our rich culture to show such unbecoming and condemnable lead for the sake of tumult.
"No, that was not tumult, no correct reasoning human will relate to such conduct.
"Truly, Nigeria is experiencing a repulsive stage, which is a separation point that her chiefs, especially we the Igbo heads are drawing in others to locate an enduring answer for.
"Turning to horde mindset and venting the spleen on our pioneers rather makes a vacuum that will leave our kin vulnerable and befuddled in the condition."
