This was Hon Chibuike Aneachi’s statement after Attack on Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu in August, 2019
Nigeria’s Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi has reacted to reports that Nigerian politicians are afraid to travel abroad following threats of assault by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Amaechi, who spoke to LEGIT, revealed that he is not afraid and would ‘defend’ himself if attacked. Recall that the former deputy senate president, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, was attacked by some IPOB members in Germany a few weeks ago. This has heightened cautiousness among politicians concerning their safety abroad.
“What do you mean by that? Scared of who? I’m going to Geneva, let them come. You know there is something called self-defence? Abegi!”
But he was helpless after IPOB eventually attacked him in Spain.
Our politicians dont guts when it comes to open confrontation …All they know is rhetorics ….We can actually prevent them from enjoying their trip abroad.
