Ohanaeze Ndigbo begs Buhari to help transfer Ekweremadu’s case to Nigeria

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has asked the federal government to intervene in the legal battle involving former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu who is currently facing trial over alleged organ harvesting in the United Kingdom.

Interestingly, last week, Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said the federal government would not interfere with any local or international legal issues involving the senator.

Malami was quoted to have said it had never been the tradition of the Nigerian government to interfere in anything judicial, local or international.

The organisation pointed out that Ekweremadu had served Nigeria meritoriously in various capacities, including as the Deputy President of the Senate; the Speaker of the Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS), among others, adding that he was decorated with the service honour of the Commander of the Federal Republic-CFR.

It stated that the Nigerian government and all Nigerians must know that a measured indignity to Ekweremadu, an illustrious Igbo and a serving senator of the federal republic of Nigeria was a sad denouement to Nigeria and indeed the entire Africa.

Ohanaeze therefore urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama; Nigeria’s High Commission in the UK, the Senate and House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to use their diplomatic channels to ensure that Ekweremadu and his wife get the desired assistance by transferring the case to Nigeria.
