Our Brother Lied Against Bishop Ezeokafor- Ezeoke Siblings

Jalingo Seminary Attack: Enough Of This Bloodshed - Bishop Ezeokafor Tells FG

From Alphonsus Nweze, Awaka

The family of Late  Chief  A. O  Ezeoke of Obinabo village, Ngkpologwu in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State has exonerated the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese , Most Rev. Dr. Paulinus Ezeokafor, and the  legal adviser of  the diocese, Rev Fr(Dr)  Edwin Obiorah  about  the “the serious and wild allegation”  leveled against them by Dr Sylvester Ezeoke over the execution of Chief Ezeoke’s Will.

The first daughter of the late Ezeoke, Mrs Ngozi Nwachukwu, told newsmen in Awka yesterday through a statement issued and signed  by eight  Ezeoke siblings that   the unfortunate allegations from her brother, Dr. Sylvester Ezeoke which was  published in National Dailies (not Daily Times), as well as online media   “were totally false and maliciously intended to malign the Bishop and his legal adviser”.

She said “Dr. Sylvester Ezeoke did not speak on our behalf as a representative of Late  Chief A.O.Ezeoke’s family. We wish to affirm our strongest support for Bishop Ezeokafor and Rev. Father Obiorah to continue the work they are doing to execute our Late  father’s Will within the confines of the law”.

Continuing  the family members said “at no time  did we authorize Dr. Sylvester Ezeoke  to speak on  our behalf as children of Late A. O. Ezeoke. Neither the Bishop nor Rev Father Obiora has oppressed or intimidated us in anyway”.

Other children of Late Chief Ezeoke  who signed the statement  were  Dr (Mrs.) Chinyere Aginam, Mrs.  Uchenna Ezeaka, Mrs. Amarachukwu Esomugha, Mr. Callistus Ezeoke, Mrs Njideka Emenobi, Mr Elochukwu Ezeoke and Miss Nonso Ezeoke.
