- Amaechi says members of a group which has been proscribed in Nigeria lied about the attacking him

The Cable reports that the minister in a statement on Saturday, December 7, said members of a group, which has been proscribed in Nigeria lied about the attacking him.

Amaechi noted that he was not beaten, physically assaulted or suffer any bodily harm from the IPOB members. He the prompt intervention of the Spanish police stopped the attackers from carrying out their plan.

“As they charged towards and at the minister during the attack, it was apparent that their plan was to “beat” (quoting Emma Powerful) him, hurt him, cause bodily harm or even do worse! But their violent evil plot failed woefully due to the dexterity of Amaechi to resist them, protect and defend himself, and the prompt intervention of the Spanish police who repelled the motley crowd of misguided attackers," the minister said.
