Bury Him In Abuja – Simon Ekpa Vows To Stop Late Ex-Gov Ezeife’s Burial; Reveals Why




The burial ceremony of the former governor of Anambra State, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has been threatened by Finland-based Biafra agitator, Simon Ekpa.

Ezeife died at the Federal Medical Centre, Abuja, on Thursday, according to a short press release issued on Friday and signed by Chief Rob Ezeife, on behalf of the family.

Born on November 20, 1938, the deceased fondly called ‘Okwadike’, was governor of Anambra state between January 1992 to November 1993 during the aborted Third Republic.

The statement read, “On behalf of the Ezeife Dynasty of Igbo-Ukwu, I wish to announce the promotion to glory of our most distinguished son, ‘Okwadike’, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, CON, a former Federal Permanent Secretary, a former governor of Anambra State, a former Political Adviser to the President and former Presidential aspirant.

“This sad event took place yesterday at 6 pm at the Federal Medical Centre, Abuja.”

“More details about the deceased and the arrangements for his state burial will be announced later.”

However, in reaction to his death, Ekpa said Ezeife’s burial will be difficult because he aided and supported the disappearance of Biafra youths and supported the Nigerian government.

The Biafra agitator said he will declare a sit-at-home on the day Ezeife will be laid to rest.
