The daughter of the former Enugu State Chief Judge Hon. late Justice Innocent Azubike Umezu, Cynthia Chisom Umezulike Ph.D, has weighed in on the recent home invasion of Supreme Court Judge, Justice Mary Odili, in Abuja.
Cynthia explained that nobody complained about the intrusion of Mary Odili’s home when other lawyers, notably her father, were treated with harrasment, victimsation, home bulgary, false charges, and conspiacy to remove from office.”
Cynthia Umezulike went on to say that the Nigerian press has suddenly remembered her father’s “wrong treatment and brazenly include his lengthy name in all Mary Odili’s press releases to define and narrate the narrative of victimized Igbo judicial officers.”
Taking to her Twitter handle, she wrote;
”A serving Nigerian Supreme Court Judge is allegedly being harassed and the Igbos are suddenly crying wolf. A few years ago, none of these people openly decried the harassment, home burglary, false accusations and conspiracy to remove from office of their numerous colleagues including the longest serving Chief Judge of South- Eastern Nigeria. ”
”Today, the Nigerian press suddenly remembers my father was treated unfairly and shamelessly include his long-suffering name in all Mary Odili’s press release to objectify and enunciate the narrative of victimised Igbo judicial officers.
”Please, I am yet to heal from the evil travails he unjustly suffered and constantly dragging up the name of the dead is deepening that wound. I respectfully ask that his name be excluded from this narrative and be removed from any further press releases. Hon. Justice Innocent Azubike Umezulike OFR FCIARB FIIAN (as he then was) has gone to rest – let him be.”
