The Deputy President of the Senate (DSP), Dr. Ike Ekweremadu, has revealed how his Will was allegedly stolen from the Probate Registry of Enugu. He accused the former Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice Innocent Umezulike and some unnamed politicians of doctoring the Will by inserting nonexisting properties in the document.

Ekweremadu, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Uche Anichukwu, entitled, “This one shall pass”, also accused a presidential aide, Mr. Okoi Obono-Obla, as the mastermind of the smear campaign against his person by online media outfits. According to the DSP, Justice Umezulike, in his capacity as the Chief Judge of Enugu State at the time, carried out the act in connivance with some other persons from the state, including politicians.

His words: “About July 2016, former Chief Judge of Enugu State, Hon. Justice Innocent Umezulike, in his capacity as the Chief Judge of Enugu State at the time, together with his lawyer, and Barrister Tagbo Ike, in connivance with some politicians, broke into the Probate Registry, Enugu, took away my Will and left behind a photocopy.

“They copied the properties listed in the Will and added many imaginary properties and started churning out baseless petitions to government agencies and officials. “In their petition to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), for instance, they claimed, in a demonstration of gross ignorance, that I was given money by the Federal Government to develop the South-East geopolitical zone, but that I used it to purchase 32 properties.

“They sent similar petitions to Mr. President, the Vice President, Senate President, Attorney-General of the Federation, Independent Corrupt Practices, and Other Related Offences Commission, Code of Conduct Bureau, Director-General of the Department of State Services, Inspector- General of Police, Commissioner of Police (Enugu), among others.”

Ekweremadu stated that the negative media campaign against him had been on for several weeks now, but assured his supporters that there was nothing to worry about. According to him, “I do not intend to respond, for now, to the smear campaign related to the 2019 election, which is spearheaded by Okoi Obono-Obla, using Sahara Reporters. I will speak more on this subject at the appropriate time.

“For now, let me state that Justice Innocent Umezulike has since been dismissed from service by the National Judicial Council and is facing trial in different courts. God is also on top of the matter in several other ways in the life of Justice Umezulike’s. “It suffices to add that with what is unfolding now, the current smear campaign championed by Mr. Okoi Obono-Obla, is helping to expose those who acted with Justice Umezulike, to steal my will. They have been peddling this so-called ‘discovery’ since July 2016. “Umezulike has also, in several other petitions, attacked me and my family. He also, at some point, accused me of killing several people, which the office of the Inspector-General of Police investigated; and probably, he will soon face appropriate charges bordering on false information.

“Let me, therefore, call on all those, who are concerned about this smear campaign, not to worry. This too shall pass. History will vindicate the just and the wicked will never go unpunished.” Meanwhile, Obono-Obla has threatened to file a suit against Ekweremadu before the court over allegation that he (Obla) was the mastermind of a smear campaign against his (Ekweremadu) person by Sahara Reporters. Reacting to the allegation, Obla told New Telegraph that “the allegation is juvenile, balderdash, spurious, malicious and a red herring.

“What business do I have with Sahara Reporters? What business do I have with the former Chief Judge of Enugu State? I don’t know the owner of Sahara Reporters and the former Chief Judge of Enugu State. “I am from Cross River State, so what is my business with Ike Ekweremadu other than my official work?

I am flummoxed, surprised and amazed that such a juvenile allegation would come from a man who is Deputy Senate President and a supposed lawyer. “If he has committed a crime against the people of Nigeria, he should go and face it and leave me out of it. “I will surely sue him in the court of law.”
