Ohanaeze Youths Claims EFCC Is Working Against Ekweremadu

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, applauded the Federal High Court judgement on Saturday that vacated the interim forfeiture order against a former Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.

According to the organisation, after the verdict, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission should cover its face in shame for the smear campaign against Ekweremadu.

While portraying the EFCC’s asset forfeiture order as a hatchet job, the Ohanaeze youths claimed Ekweremadu’s only offence was being an Igbo guy.

Justice Inyang Ekwo of a Federal High Court in Abuja had while vacating the order, said the court discovered that it was fraudulently obtained by the EFCC.
The National President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, said the latest order of the court was a vindication of its earlier stand that the EFCC was allegedly carrying out a vendetta on Ekweremadu merely because he is an Igbo man.
He said, “How else can one explain a situation where the same EFCC that wrote the United Kingdom Court against the release of Ekweremadu, sneaked into a Federal High Court in Nigeria and asked the lawmaker to show why his properties should not be forfeited.

“It was the height of wickedness and rascality by an agency of government. This is why we commend the Judge for toeing the path of justice. The judgement has put to rest the hatchet job done by the EFCC against Ekweremadu whose only sin is the fact that he is an Igbo man.

“The EFCC should right now be hiding its face in shame for even initiating such a process that was not only illegal but against natural justice.

“We expect that for the EFCC to purge itself of that dance of shame, it should withdraw the letter to the UK court.”
