Apex-Igbo Organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has sacked Ex-Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu as a member of ‘Ime-Obi’ over his arrest on suspicions of Organ Harvesting in the United Kingdom.
Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice are currently in Police Custody after an Uxbridge court denied them bail on Thursday.
In a statement made available to POLITICS NIGERIA signed by the Secretary-General of the Group, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Ekweremadu committed an ‘atrocity against humanity’.
The statement read in part; Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide has described the arrest of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice Ekweremadu by Uk police on allegations of child organ harvesting as the height of ‘monstrosities and atrocities’ against humanity”
“They should be allowed to face the consequences of their actions in UK.”
“The Igbo leadership will strip him of all titles and privileges accorded to him as an Ime-Obi member (the apex decision making organ of Ohanaeze) if he is found guilty of this allegations.”
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo also calls on the good people of Enugu West Senatorial zone to initiate the process of his recall from the Senate if he is finally convicted. This anathema is condemned in strong words and must come with strict sanctions against Ekweremadu.”
“Ndigbo will not condone such actions in Igboland, he dishonored the people he represents in the Senate,”
“The stigma of these allegations will torment Ike Ekweremadu and his wife”.
