The Federal Government will not meddle in any local or international legal struggle involving Ekweranmadu, according to a statement attributed to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami. This prompted Ohanaeze to make the request.

National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze, Dr. Alex Ogbonnia, in a statement obtained by The Sun, disagreed with Malami and pointed out that countries the world over would always go for their citizens.

Read the statement below…

“Every dispassionate Nigerian knows that the practice of organ harvest has over the years become a Nigerian provenance and of course, it is not viewed as unlawful so long as there is a mutual agreement between the parties involved.

 “It is in the context of cultural relativism and the premium placed on their citizens’ welfare and national pride that countries deploy their diplomatic weights and resources to ensure their citizens obtain justice and even reprieve in a foreign land, no matter the gravity of the offense.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo believes that Ekweremadu’s case should not be different, especially when Nigeria enjoys longstanding cordial relations with the UK, and all the individuals involved in the UK case are Nigerian nationals.

“The Nigerian government and indeed all Nigerians should know that a measured indignity to Ike Ekweremadu, an illustrious Igbo and a serving senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is a sad denouement to Nigeria and indeed entire Africa.
