Nigerians attack Rotimi Amaechi in Spain

The Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi was on Friday allegedly attacked by some Nigerians during his visit to Spain.

The minister who revealed this in a tweet via his Twitter handle @ChibuikeAmaechi, described his attackers as ‘misguided Nigerians’.

Amaechi said he was attending a climate change event in Madrid, Spain when he was attacked.

He, however, stated that the Spanish police repelled the attackers before they could hurt him.

The former Rivers governor tweeted:

“Some minutes ago, I was attacked by a few misguided Nigerians while on national assignment at a climate change event in Madrid, Spain. They were quickly repelled by the Spanish police before they could do any harm. I am fine. I was not hurt. Thanks for your support & prayers.”

Attack on Amaechi is coming a few months after former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu was attacked in Germany by Nigerians suspected to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
