Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have confirmed attacking the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi in Spain.
It was reported earlier that the former Governor of Rivers State disclosed that he was attacked in Spain by some “misguided Nigerians” while on national assignment in the European country.
“Some minutes ago, I was attacked by a few misguided Nigerians while on national assignment at a climate change event in Madrid, Spain,” Amaechi tweeted on Friday.
“They were quickly repelled by the Spanish police before they could do any harm.”
Confirming the incident, some IPOB members who shared videos from the scene of the attack expressed regret on “not getting the Minister”. They however stated that they will still “get and beat” him. The IPOB members were also heard shouting “he is a criminal, Ole (thief)” intermittently.
