Naija News reports that Amaechi made this comment in reaction to claims that politicians in Nigeria are afraid of traveling abroad after the attack on a former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, by IPOB members.
The attack in its wake, generated a lot of controversies in Nigeria and outside the shores of the country, with politicians coming out to strongly condemn the action of the pro-Biafra group.
However, IPOB maintained that it would continue to attack “bad” Nigerian leaders attending any event outside the country.
The threat, the group carried out recently by laying siege in Tokyo for President Muhammadu Buhari who is currently attending a function in Japan.
Responding to the threat, Amaechi, who was in a moving train, told the interviewer that he would apply self-defence in the face of any such attack.
When the interviewer told Amaechi that politicians are now afraid of traveling abroad, he responded, “What do you mean by that? Scared of who self-defence to Geneva, let them come. You know, there’s what they call self-defence.
“How can you say politicians are afraid of traveling abroad? I’ll go to America, the UK any place I have functions to attend.”
