Ike Ekweremadu, the immediate past deputy senate president was in the German city for New Yam festival.
But confirming the attack, Ekweremadu noted on his Twitter handle that he was fine, while condemning the action, saying he had reported the matter to the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany, Yusuf Tuggar.
The lawmaker also said that he tried to engage them but when they became unruly, I had to leave the venue. The organisers also invited the police and I was accompanied out of the venue.
The Nigerian government had proscribed IPOB, a secessionist group led by Nnamdi Kanu, in late 2017, after its members clashed with soldiers in Abia state.
