Ohanaeze Expels Ekweremadu
Ike Ekweremadu, the former deputy senate president, has been expelled from Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s “Ime-Obi” organisation as a result of his arrest in the UK on suspicion of organ harvesting.
After being denied bail on Thursday by an Uxbridge court, Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice are currently being held in police custody.
Ekweremadu committed a “atrocity against humanity,” according to a statement made available to Newsmen and signed by the Group’s Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro.
The arrest of former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice Ekweremadu, by UK police on suspicion of child organ harvesting was dubbed the “peak of monstrosities and atrocities” against humanity by Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide, according to the statement.
“They ought to be permitted to deal with the repercussions of their actions in the UK.”
If he is found guilty of these accusations, “the Igbo leadership will strip him of all titles and privileges accorded to him as an Ime-Obi member (the supreme decision-making organ of Ohanaeze)”
If he is ultimately found guilty, “Ohanaeze Ndigbo also calls on the good people of Enugu West Senatorial zone to start the process of his recall from the Senate. Strong language is used to condemn this anathema, and Ekweremadu must face severe penalties.
He dishonoured the people he represents in the Senate, and Ndigbo will not condone such actions in Igboland.
Ike Ekweremadu and his wife will suffer because of the stigma surrounding these accusations.
