Former Senate President , Dr. Bukola Saraki, has taken to his offical Twitter handle, @bukolasaraki, to express joy that his former deputy, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, was not hurt during the Saturday’s attack on him by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra in Nuremberg, Germany.
@bukolasaraki on Sunday tweeted:
“I spoke with my brother and friend, Senator Ike Ekweremadu yesterday after hearing about the unfortunate incident in Germany and I thank God that he is fine and very well.
“I remember that on Thursday before departing Nigeria, he visited me & I could see the enthusiasm, excitement & passion with which he looked forward to meeting Nigerians in Nuremberg at the 2nd Annual Cultural Festival, particularly after attending a very successful 1 earlier in US.
“The Nuremberg incident was highly unfortunate and Nigerians at home and in the diaspora need to avoid this kind of unnecessary distraction.
“This is a time we all have to work together to foster unity and peace in our country.
“I am happy Ike remains unshaking (sic) and solid in his belief about a united, strong and prosperous Nigeria.”
