Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama Escapes Lynching in Austria

Another Nigerian government official has experienced the wrath of members of IPOB in Europe. This time it is Geoffrey Onyeama, the nation’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. He was in Austria where he was holding a meeting with Nigerians when during the session, trouble erupted.

The problem really began during a question and answer session. A participant has asked a question regarding the behaviour of the executive with regards to how it disdains court orders and referencing the incarceration of the IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu despite court orders issued for his release and the Biafra war.

In answering this question, the minister started by saying the most of those who were agitating today did not experience the war and that it was sad they were romanticizing something they really did not know how it went.

Not allowing him to go any further, suspected member of IPOB in the audience retorted loudly, saying “so because we did not experience the war we cannot talk about it..” things went down hill very quickly from there on. The minister had to quickly beat a retreat so as not to suffer the same fate as former deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu who was manhandled in Germany and his cloths torn.
