A video has emerged showing the moment Spanish police officers prevented an angry mob from attacking the minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, in Madrid, Spain, on Friday.
YaahooJournalist reports that Young men with flags of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had filed out on the street waiting for the minister but the policemen dispersed them peacefully.
YaahooJournalist recalls that the minister had said that some misguided Nigerians attacked him on Friday, December 6 while he was on a national assignment. The minister disclosed this in a tweet on the micro-blogging site, Twitter.
In the message, the Transportation Minister said the attackers were repelled by the Spanish police.
“Some minutes ago, I was attacked by a few misguided Nigerians while on national assignment at a climate change event in Madrid, Spain,” he said.
“They were quickly repelled by the Spanish police before they could do any harm. I am fine. I was not hurt. Thanks for your support & prayers.”
