Amaechi was attacked while attending a climate change summit in Madrid.
The minister, who confirmed the attack in a tweet, said: “Some minutes ago, I was attacked by a few misguided Nigerians while 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.”
