Senator Ike Ekweremadu claimed some persons around the presidency were trying to tarnish his image.
He claimed he was being attacked because of 2019 Deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu has raised serious allegation against Mr. Okoi Obono-Obla who is an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari accusing him and some other persons of embarking on smear campaign.
The Cable reports that the Ekweremadu in a statement issued on his behalf by Uche Anichukwu, his spokesman, claimed that Innocent Umezulike, a former chief judge in Enugu state, stole his will and doctored it.

He said: “There has been a sustained smear campaign against my person by Mr. Okoi Obono-Obla.” “I would have continued to ignore them, but for the concern of my well-wishers. Therefore, the public may wish to know as follows: “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, 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 Security, inspector-general of Police, commissioner of police (Enugu), among others.” Ekweremadu said he would speak on the matter at the appropriate time saying he was being targeted because of 2019. He said: “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,” he said. “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, the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation (OAGF) debunked claims of plans to arraign Ekweremadu.

A top ranking officer at OAGF said there are no intentions by the office to arraign Ekweremadu over issues of oversees property linked to him. “We did not yet receive any memo from the Code of Conduct Bureau on any false declaration of assets by the Senator. We also saw the report like every other Nigerian, but there is nothing like that from our end,” the source said.
