Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, has been cleared of the allegations of murder and other sundry crimes leveled against him by an activist in the state, Comrade Aku Obidinma (Abdul).
Prince Madumere was absolved of the purported crimes by Comrade Aku Obidinma himself, according to popular social crusader Citizen Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha. In a statement which he issued in Owerri on Monday, a copy of which was made available to News Express, Citizen Iwuoha gave details of his investigations into the allegations, which took him to Owerri Federal Prisons, where Comrade Obidinma has been remanded till January 17, 2017 when he would make another appearance at the magistrate court located in Nworieubi in Mbaitoli Local Government Area, which bail conditions he has been unable to meet.
Parts of the statement by Citizen Iwuoha read: “I resolved to wade into the matter, as a veteran of many battles. Aku Obidinma was remanded in prison custody on Thursday the 24th of November 2016, so on Friday the following day, I visited the Owerri Federal Prisons to see some people and at the same time, to see him.
“When Prison officials brought Aku to me at the office of the Chief Warder, he was happy and delighted that at least a “GENERAL” came to see him. I asked him several questions to which he responded. But he complained bitterly of the hard bail conditions given to him by the
magistrate. I equally asked him to confirm if he truly accused the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, in his publication on Facebook, of being a murderer and other sundry crimes. Aku responded by telling me that his Facebook Account was hacked, and that those publications against the Deputy Governor were not made by him.
“At this point, I felt disappointed that Aku Obidinma could not stand firm. It was at this point that I knew that he did not have serious evidence against the Deputy Governor.”
News Express will publish Citizen Iwuoha’s full statement this evening, including his meeting with Prince Madumere as part of his investigations into the issue.
