“Chibuike R. Amaechi who was attending an official event in Madrid was reportedly attacked by some Nigerians.
“We applaud the prompt intervention of the Nigerian Mission in Spain as well as the Spanish police who ensured that the attacks did not escalate any further. “Information indicates that the case is being handled by the Spanish Police.
