The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has revealed that some misguided Nigerians recently attacked him in Spain on Friday, December 6.
Amaechi said that he was violently approached by some persons which he identified as fellow citizens while he was on an official assignment in Madrid, Spain.
He, however, said that he was fine and unhurt due to the timely intervention of police officials in the foreign country.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that about seven weeks after the former deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, was attacked in Nuremberg, Germany, the president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nwodo, had revealed how he escaped assault by members of Independent People of Biafra (IPOB).
Speaking on Monday, October, the Igbo leader said he would have also been with Ekweremadu in Germany but his visa was delayed.
He said: "I was supposed to be there with Ekweremadu, but my visa came late. And I persuaded him to go because all the disparate Igbo communities in Germany were coming together."
Legit.ng gathered that he described the attack as “un-Igbo, uncivilised," adding that the earlier those tendencies are stopped, the better for the people of the southeast.

Nwodo further explained that it is sacrilegious for a young man to attack somebody who is old enough to be his father in Igbo culture.
