The Ohaneze Council of Elders, say henceforth, it will rise in defence of Igbo sons and daughters “when they are subjected to unfair and unjust treatment”

The elders in a statement signed by Chairman of the Council and elder statesman, Chief (Engr) Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu and made available to INNONEWS, condemned in strong terms “the recent invasion of the home and harassment of one of our illustrious daughters Princess Justice Mary Odili of the Nation’s Supreme Court in Abuja by some people described as security agents”

While calling on the Federal Government and the National Assembly not to allow the matter be swept under the carpet, the elders “ordered for full investigation and ensure that all those found culpable are brought to book to serve as deterrent to others who may try such in future”

The Council noted that “any daughter of Igboland from the date of birth till death is a bonafide member of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, no matter where they are married, either within or outside the Country. They are full members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo while their husbands and children are honorary members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

“Princess Hon Justice Mary Odili nee Nzenwa is the daughter of First Chairman of Nigeria Airways, His Royal Highness Eze Barrister B S C Nzenwa. Her Late father HRH Eze B S C Nzenwa was a renowned Lawyer and Politician before his Community called on him to ascend the throne of their ancestors.
