Attack on Ekweremadu sacrilegious, reprehensible, says Abaribe
Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe (PDP Abia), has described as reprehensible and sacrilegious the attack on former Deputy Senate President, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) had on Saturday reported that Enweremadu was physically attacked by the IPOB members who accused him of not partnering them.
He said it smacked of utter ignorance of the prevailing situation at home with regard to what Enweremadu and other Igbo leaders were doing in the circumstance.
He said he and the entire minority caucus in the ninth senate were appalled on the attack.
“This was not minding the repercussions to his illustrious political career.
“It is most worrisome and even inconceivable that the attackers will choose an auspicious occasion where our people are celebrating and showcasing our rich culture to exhibit such unbecoming and condemnable conduct in the name of agitation.
“Resorting to mob mentality and venting the spleen on our leaders rather creates a vacuum that will leave our people helpless and confused in the circumstance,” he said.
He, however, appealed to Ekweremadu not to be discouraged in any way, but rather take it in its stride as the price often paid in leadership. (NAN)Read more: The Nation Nigeria
