The former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu was beaten in Germany on Saturday, which got the attention of Femi Fani-Kayode, who reacted to the incident on twitter.
Ekweremadi was on Saturday disgraced by suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The incident is believed to have taken place in Nuremberg, Germany.
Ekweremadu was dragged around and stoned with different objects, around the venue of the event.
The lawmaker was later whisked away in a car, after several attempts to stop him from escaping.
In the video, one of the attackers was heard saying “imagine, people are dying on a daily basis, people are wailing on a daily basis and we are here enjoying.”
Reacting, Fani Kayode, who took to his Twitter page, described the incident as an eye-opener to every southern leader.
According to him, the case of Ike should be an eye-opener for other politicians in the southern part of the country.
“What happened to my friend and brother Sen. Ike Ekweremadu in Nuremberg, Germany at the hands of IPOB is an eye-opener and clear signal to every political leader in southern Nigeria!
“The people of the south are getting angry and you either stand up and defend them or stand aside!”
