Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has condemned the attack on Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi in Madrid, Spain.
Amaechi was attacked on Friday while attending an event on climate change in Madrid.
Though Amaechi who disclosed the attack on his Twitter account did not comment on the identity of those involved in the attack, members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, claimed responsibility.
Reacting to the attack in a statement, on Saturday, Dabiri-Erewa, lauded the quick intervention of the Nigerian Mission in Spain and the Spanish police.
She said: “We applaud the prompt intervention of the Nigerian Mission in Spain as well as the Spanish police who ensured that the attacks did not escalate any further.
“Information indicates that the case is being handled by the Spanish Police.
“We appeal to Nigerians to be of good behaviour wherever they find themselves because such incidents ultimately tarnish the image of the country within the host country, with multiplier negative effects on Nigerians living in that country, who are law-abiding and well behaved”.
