FORMER Deputy Senate President and serving Senator Ike Ekweramadu have returned to Nigeria after he was attacked by some IPOB members in Germany.

The Senator arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja today.

Speaking to journalists at the airport, Ekweremadu described his assault as the actions of a few misguided individuals and not a representation of the character of the majority of Nigerians.

He said he will not be seeking for the punishment of the individuals who assaulted him and he has forgiven them.

Ekweremadu was attacked at the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival at which he was a speaker/special guest of honour in Nuremberg when he was attacked.

A video of the incident uploaded by IPOB on its Facebook page and by some other persons at the scene went viral.

In the video, a rowdy group of people was seen angrily throwing objects at a man said to be the Senator as he walked away from them.

Amid shouts of ‘bring him out’, the man was later pulled out through the crowd gathered at the entrance of a building before being dragged from the angry crowd into a vehicle and driven away.
