There are indications that the former governor of Abia State, Orji Kalu, had cancelled a proposed travel abroad for medical treatment.
Senator Ekweremadu was to give a keynote address at the Second Igbo Annual Cultural Festival and Convention organised by Ndi-Igbo Germany in that city when a mob, which identified itself as members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), invaded the venue to attack the illustrious son of igboland.

“The perpetrators of the uncivilized act must face the wrath of the law.
