The ministry of Foreign Affairs has warned politicians planning foreign trips to notify it of such travels to avoid being subjected to humiliation.

The ministry was making an obvious reference to the treatment meted to former Deputy Senate President, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Nuremberg Germany.

Ekweremadu was manhandled by the IPOB youths who accused him of siding with the federal government in the recurring killings of southerners and rape of their women by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

 The ministry advised officials and dignitaries wishing to travel abroad to notify it of their itinerary to enable the Ministry to thoroughly scrutinise the security status of the organisations inviting them.

According to the ministry, this would also enable it to take concrete steps to ensure that host’s law enforcement agencies were on hand to guarantee their security.

 Spokesman of the ministry Ferdinand Nwoye made this known in a statement in which it said the advisory was a follow-up to the attack on the former Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu by the Indigenous People of Biafra in Nuremberg, Germany, last Saturday.

 “The ministry wishes to empathize with the distinguished Senator as well as remind all dignitaries to endeavor to bring to the notice of the Ministry and Missions their impending travel schedules to enable the Ministry thoroughly scrutinize the security status of the organisations inviting them for the meeting, and to make adequate preparation, as well as concrete steps to ensure that host law enforcement agencies are on hand to guarantee their comprehensive security.
