Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi escaped physical attack by those he called “misguided Nigerians in Spain where he is on an official duty.
The minister himself, in a tweet today, December 6, said it was the Spanish police that dispersed his attackers and saved him from embarrassment.
He wrote at about 4.15pm Nigerian time: “some minutes ago, I was attacked by a few misguided Nigerians while I was on national assignment at a climate change event in Madrid, Spain. 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 and prayers.”
