Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has dropped his plan on trip to Spain after members of the Indigenous People of Biafra beat up former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, on Saturday, in Germany.
However, the lawmaker stated his decision to discard the trip was not to avoid assault from members of IPOB.
Kalu explained in a statement on Monday, that he has been in his country home, Igbere, Abia State, communicating with members of his constituency since the National Assembly went on recess.
He noted that he has had held several meetings with the people of Abia North at his home in Igbere.
The statement reads:
“I have been in my country home interacting with people from my constituency and settling disputes.
The news that I suspended my planned medical trip abroad is not true. I was invited by an Igbo group in Spain to attend their function, I could not go because of the interaction with my constituents.”
