The President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan, and the former Minister of Labour, Senator Chris Ngige, have paid a solidarity visit to former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
The visit, on Monday, 19 August, followed the attack on Ekweremadu in Nuremberg, Germany, at the weekend.
He was assaulted by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra who targeted him because he reportedly failed to defend them with the right legislative agenda during their attempt to break up from Nigeria in 2016 and 2017.
