Reactions has continued to trail the barbaric act of some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra on the former deputy senate president Ike Ekweremadu.

Adding his voice to the issue  is the  Former Abia State Governor and Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate, Dr. Orji Uzor  Kalu.

It will be recalled that Ekweramadu was  rudely assaulted  by members of  (IPOB) in Germany where he  was invited as a speaker/special guest of honour at the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival in Nuremberg.

Kalu described the action of the mob as uncivilized, unacceptable and barbaric, the senator  urged Ndigbo to respect leaders at all levels.

In a statement issued by his media officer,  Kalu  urged the Embassy of Nigeria in Germany, the German government and appropriate authorities to bring the perpetrators of the ugly incident to book.

In his words, “after watching a viral video of the physical attack on former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweramadu, I was not only disappointed but irritated and disturbed with the action of some members of IPOB.”

"The assault on the senator is a slap on Igbo leaders regardless of age, party affiliation and religion.”

"The perpetrators of the uncivilized act must face the wrath of the law."

"Senator Ekweramadu is not only one of the Igbo leaders but also a prominent Nigerian and as such should be accorded due respect by all and sundry at home and abroad."

“For the South East to move forward, the people of the region must embrace dialogue as a way of resolving pertinent issues and eschew violence.

Kalu urge Igbo leaders all over the world to educate their followers about the dangers  of social vices.
