Organ Harvesting: Ohanaeze Reacts Over Claim of Disowning Ekweremadu

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the leading sociocultural organization of the Igbo people, has denied rumors that it had disowned Ike Ekweremadu and his wife because of an alleged case of organ harvesting.

Recall, the Metropolitan Police in London detained Ekweremadu and his wife for allegedly enabling the passage of a younger boy named Ukpo Nwanmini to the UK with the intention of having his organs taken for his sick daughter.

The group said in a statement released on Monday by its national publicity secretary, Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, that it is their responsibility to stand by one another, particularly during trying times, and that it is not in keeping with their character to make rash statements about situations without sufficient evidence.

The statement reads: “The attention of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has been drawn to remarks making the rounds to the effect that “Ohanaeze Ndigbo disowns Ekweremadu” over his ordeal in the United Kingdom.”

“While Ohanaeze Ndigbo owes it a duty to stand with our own, especially in times of difficulty, it is not in their character to be hasty with statements over issues without sufficient facts.”

“It is noteworthy that eminent Igbo patriots have at one time or the other, pleaded with impostors and pretenders to desist from reckless and unguarded statements that portray the Igbo in a bad light using the platform of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.”

“For purpose of clarity, the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo is Ambassador Professor George Obiozor while the Secretary General is Ambassador Okey Emuchay, MFR.”

” Amongst the Igbo, it is a cultural anathema to rejoice over a brother’s misfortune. And this is where the remarks by Mr. Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, is very germane and instructive.”

“Our hearts go to our daughter, Miss Sonia Ekweremadu; and it is our fervent prayer that Sen. Prof. Ike Ekweremadu, CFR; Lady Nwanneka Ekweremadu, PhD and family will overcome the current travails.”
