FROM FRY PAN TO FIRE! Ike Ekweremadu Lands In Fresh Trouble Over His Seat In The Senate

While former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu is in far away the United Kingdom facing organ trafficking allegation, an Enugu-based lawyer, Ogochukwu Onyema has approached the Federal High Court in Enugu praying it to declare his constituency seat vacant.

Ekweremadu is the serving senator from Enugu West constituency where the lawyer prayed the court to declare vacant over the lawmaker’s detention in the United Kingdom where he is facing charges bordering on alleged organ trafficking.

According to Onyeama, the seat cannot continue to be vacant while Ekweremadu remains in detention.

In the legal proceeding marked FHC/EN/CS/7/2022 filed at the Federal High Court, Enugu, Onyema besought the court “to command and mandate” the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, and PDP to “nominate, and forward” his name to the National Assembly “as a replacement” for Ekweremadu.
