Rotimi Amaechi

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).
