Senator Ike Ekweremadu has narrated how he was attacked during a New Yam Festival celebration in Nuremberg, Germany on Saturday.
The senator representing Enugu-West in the National Assembly told journalists at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International airport, Abuja on arrival from Germany that his attackers were worried about Operation Python Dance, a military operation in the South-East.
He said, “When I got there, the Ambassador was not there yet but a lot of people had already assembled. I was excited and I alighted from my car to go and say hello to those standing in front of the hall.
“A group of young people with IPOB emblem and shirts were also standing there. One of them then accosted me and said that we didn’t do much when the Federal Government declared Operation Python Dance in the South-East.
“They asked me to address them on the issue right there but I told them that it was part of the issues I would address when I wanted to speak during the programme but they said No!
“They became agitated and started attacking me immediately.”
