Following his return on Monday from Nuremberg, Germany, where he was attacked at the weekend by members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the immediate past Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has been receiving high-profile visitors at his Maitama, Abuja residence.
Among the early callers are the President of the Senate, Dr. Ahmad Lawan, former Governor of Anambra State and Minister-Designate, Dr. Chris Ngige and Senator Barth Nnaji.
Earlier, Ekweremadu was received at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, by a crowd of well-wishers and supporters.
The former Deputy President of the Senate took to his Twitter account @iamekweremadu to announce that, “Back from Germany, President of @NGRSenate,@Dr.AhmadLawan and other distinguished colleagues and friends were among the first callers.”
He also tweeted, “I arrived Nnamdi Azikiwe Int’l Airport, Abuja, this evening to a rousing welcome. I appreciate the solidarity.”
