In recent news, one discovers that Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, the Ikemba of Nnewi, the Dikedioramma and Eze Gburugburu of Igboland, has fallen so gravely ill that there are now fears for his life. He is 77 years old. He was recently rushed to the University of Enugu Teaching Hospital where he received treatment for Cerebral Vascular Accident (stroke). This is not the first time that he has suffered from this debilitating ailment, but this time around, it seems to be more severe than was previously thought. He is literally in a coma, or supposedly recovering from one at the moment.
It seems that the situation has gotten more critical because as at this time, he has been flown to the UK in a special air ambulance for further treatment.
There are fears that he may not survive his treatment; in any case, God’s will be done. Let us remember him in our prayers.
