At­tack on Amaechi

The Punch - - NEWS - Daniels Igoni, Ye­nagoa

THE youth wing of ohanaeze Ndigbo has con­demned the at­tack on the Min­is­ter of Trans­porta­tion, Mr Ro­timi Amaechi, by a group of per­sons pur­ported to be mem­bers of the In­dige­nous Peo­ple of Bi­afra in Spain.

The South-south co­or­di­na­tor, ohanaeze Youth Coun­cil, Chinedu Arthur-ugwu, who re­acted to the in­ci­dent in a state­ment in Ye­nagoa on Mon­day, said the at­tack was “il­lad­vised” and did not have the back­ing of the Igbo.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the at­tack on Amaechi was an em­bar­rass­ment to the na­tion as IPOB was not an or­gan­i­sa­tion that “en­joys the sup­port and en­dorse­ment of the Igbo” and urged IPOB to ex­plore le­git­i­mate ways of hold­ing pub­lic of­fice hold­ers ac­count­able.
