The Ezeigbo Gburugburu in the person of Chief Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu, Ikemba Nnewi who have been receiving medical treatment in a London hospital since the December of 2010 following his collapse into a coma as a result of a massive stroke, is reported to be showing signs of remarkable recovery.

Information available to 247ureports.com through a principal source at the treatment center near London indicates that Ezeigbo has been making a remarkable improvement. According to the source, “Ezeigbo now can smile and move parts of his face“. The source reveals that Ezeigbo can now be sitted on a wheelchair and that he can facially aknowledge the presence of visitors/well wishers when they come to see him. The source however cautions that Ezeigbo is not completely out of the woods – as he is not yet feeding and excreting without the aid of external tubes.

December 23, 2011 will mark one year of Ezeigbo’s stay in the United Kingdom for medical treatment following the collapse in December 1, 2010 – and what a family member of Ezeigbo termed the “mismanagement” of Ezeigbo’s medical condition by his last wife, Bianca Onoh-Ojukwu and the slow response of the All Progressive Grand Alliance [APGA] led government of Anambra State – who had plegded before the President of Nigeria to take sole charge of Ezeigbo’s medical expenses.  

247ureports.com investigations has uncovered comfirmatory evidence pointing to the Anambra State Government moves to withdraw its financial pledge earlier made to the President. As gathered, the State government of Anambra state led by Governor Peter Obi has sought to halt payments on the medical expenses incurred by Ezeigbo. In this effort, Governor Peter Obi called on close family members of Ezeigbo for a private meeting to discuss on other available options to the continued treatment of Ezeigbo.

Amongst the options proferred by Governor Peter Obi was returning of Ezeigbo to Nigeria and to allow him die with diginity in his homeland. But the immediate core family rejected the option. Undeterred, Gov Peter Obi called for a meeting in August 2011 at the residence of Ezeigbo in Enugu to discuss the option of returning Ezeigbo home. The meeting saw none of the children of Ezeigbo at the said meeting.

Meanwhile the conditions near the environs of Ezeigbo home in Nnewi, Anambra depicts of near mischief in the hands of the managers of Anambra State government.
