ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has disagreed with Chief Alex Ogbonna, the spokesman of the Igbo body, on the case involving Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice.
Ogbonna had urged the Federal Government to intervene in Ekweremadu’s case, who are facing trial in the United Kingdom (UK), for allegedly importing a Nigerian for organ harvesting.
The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, had said the Federal Government would not interfere in his trial.
According to Malami, it’s not in the tradition of the Nigerian Government to interfere in such trials, a comment faulted by the Ohanaeze spokesman.
But in a counter statement on Wednesday, Isiguzoro urged the Federal Government not to interfere in the matter.
He said people should stop making such a demand without the knowledge of the Igbo General Assembly, Imeobi Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
Isiguzoro in a statement said, “The position of Ohanaeze is on the same page with the Attorney General’s Office and Minister of Justice, which is to remain neutral and not to interfere but only pray for Senator representing the Enugu West to get a fair judgment in the ongoing investigation and trial in the UK.
“These clarifications became imminent based on the fact that fifth columnists and impostors who are personal aides and Associates of Senator Ekweremadu have been drafted to use the name of Ohanaeze Ndigbo fraudulently to cajole the Federal Government into a shady expedition filled with trickery.”
