The immediate past governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has criticised the attack on former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu in Germany by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB).
Fayose, in a tweet on Sunday, condemned the attackers of Ekweremadu, who symbolises courage and democracy, calling them miscreants who do not deserve a place in civilised society.
The former governor described the attack as an assault on all Igbos and Nigerians, saying those ‘Igbo touts’ responsible for the attack have demonstrated that pigs have no value for gold.
He wrote: Attackers of Ekweremadu, a defender of democracy who symbolizes courage & decency, are miscreants who don’t deserve a place in a civilized society. It is an assault against the Igbos and Nigerians in general. To me, those “Igbo touts” demonstrated that pigs have no value for gold.
