Senator Shehu Sani has condemned the attack on ex-Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, by members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Sani in a statement on his social media handles said the IPOB spanked the wrong horse with the wrong whip on the wrong track.
He made the comment while reacting to the attack on the former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, in Nuremberg Germany.

Sani said; IPOB spanked the wrong Horse with the Wrong Whip on the wrong track.
“The attack on Senator Ekweremadu in Germany stands unreservedly condemned.
“Whatever is the political or philosophical agenda of the people that attacked him, the strategy of physical assault or violence cannot lead them to success.”
Recall that Enweremadu was physically assaulted by some members of IPOB, in Nuremberg, Germany, on Saturday at the 2nd Annual Igbo Cultural Festival organised by the Ndi-Igbo Germany community.
Meanwhile, IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful, has defended that attack on Ekweremadu in a statement.
He said the directive to attack Igbo leaders was given by the IPOB leader and the attack on Ekweremadu, in Nuremberg, Germany on Saturday was in obedience to the order.
“Yesterday, being the 17th day of August 2019 the Nuremberg IPOB family in Germany in keeping with the long-standing directive from our leader to hound all instigators of Operation Python Dance, IPOB is glad to report that Ike Ekweremadu was confronted and duly hounded out of a so-called New Yam Festival event in Germany.
“Despite repeated warnings to the organisers of these jamborees that Enugu, Ebonyi and other parts of Biafraland is under siege by Fulani caliphate and their collaborators within, they went ahead to invite a known traitor, co-conspirator and one of those that worked with Igbo governors to proscribe and tag IPOB a terror organisation while they never raised any voice against murderous Fulani herdsmen.
“This should serve as a warning to Nnia Nwodo, Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano and co that any day we find them in a public event abroad, they will be humiliated. IPOB is strategically located in over 100 countries around the world. Anywhere we find them, they will be dealt with,” Mr Powerful said.
