The Apex Igbo social-cultural organization Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide has threatened to strip former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu of all titles and privileges if found guilty of the alleged organ harvesting.
Naija News had earlier reported that Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, were arrested over alleged organ harvesting.
In a statement on Thursday, Ohanaeze Ndigbo frowned at the allegation, describing it as the height of atrocity against humanity.
The group called on the Enugu West Senatorial zone to initiate the process of Ekweremadu’s recall from the senate if he is finally convicted.
The statement reads: “Ohanaeze through its Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said “The Igbo leadership will strip him of all titles and privileges accorded to him as an ImeObi member (the apex decision making organ of Ohanaeze) if he is found guilty of this grave 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.
“we doubt if he can recover from the despicable charges that might end his political sojourn as the Senator representing the Enugu West senatorial zone”.
