While condemnation from different quarters have greeted the attack on senator Ike Ekweremadu by IPOB members in Germany, a human rights lawyer, Femi Aborisade, said IPOB was right to question the senator.
Aborisade argued that the action of IPOB towards Ekweremadu should serve as warning signals to current public officeholders that they would account for their actions in office.
He said: “My perception of the video that I watched showed that they were asking him questions, and Nigerians, anywhere they are, have the right to ask questions from their leaders either former or current. The reason was to get clarification on issues and for them to justify their actions. There is no offense in that.
“They were only asking that he should justify his statement, position, and attitude towards supporting the proscription of the IPOB. There is no attack. It is an issue of asking questions.
“It is a lesson to all current public office holders because one time or the other, all those that are depriving us democratic rights today will answer for a crime against humanity,”
