I Am Not A Drug Baron, Don’t Involve Me In Ozubulu Massacre-- Alloysius (a.k.a Bishop) Finally Speaks Out

Published by Family Writers

Abuja – Alleged target of the massacre at St Philips Catholic Church, Alloysius Nnamdi Ikegwuonwu (a.k.a Bishop) has distanced himself from the events surrounding the killings, referring it to as “unprecedented evil”.

Ikegwuonwu also clarified that he is not a drug baron as widely reported in the media insisting that his businesses are legitimate.

In the reaction widely circulated in the social media and internet based webpages, Ikegwuonwu said he knew nothing about the church killings and had never been involved in drugs. Bishop who has been linked to gang wars arising from drug related deals stated that he has never been arrested nor convicted of crime anywhere in the world and attributed the mischief to those he claims are jealous of his success.

The text reads:

“My attention has been drawn to a social media campaign where it is alleged that I am connected to the Ozubulu church killing over a drug problem.

“For the avoidance of any doubt I wish to inform the general public that I know nothing about the church killings and I have never been involved in drugs.

“I have never been arrested or convicted anywhere in the world. My businesses are legitimate buinesses, duly registered. Apart from warehousing and wholesale of goods I am also a contractor involved in the construction of roads and infrastructure in Nigeria.

“It’s shameful that Nigerians and the media don’t verify any story before running withthem.

“The handwork of those who are jealous of my success and who are determined to tarnish my image is  evident.

“The Church killings is an unprecedented evil that deserves full investigation to unmask the perpetrators.

“We await investigations and full police report of the church attack.

“In the meantime I request all social media and media houses to retract my name from the defamatory stories linking me with the church killing.

Alloysius Nnamdi

“Failure to do so and any further linking of my name with the church killings will force me to take legal action against the purveyors of the defamatory false story”

Earlier Wednesday, a council chairman from the Ozubulu had stoutly defended the 36-year-old , saying he was not a target of the mayhem and called for thorough investigation.

Mr Jovita Chukwuemeka Ofomata is the chairman of Ebubechukwuzo Foundation, owned by the alleged target of last Sunday attack by a gunman at St Philip’s Catholic Church Ozubulu.

He is also a childhood friend of the suspected drug lord. DAILY POST caught up with him and he tells all that he knows about his secondary school friend, High Chief Aloysius Ikegwuonu.

Please tell us who you are?

My Name is Jovita Emeka Ofomata. I am the chairman of Ebubechukwuzo Foundation in Ozubulu. The foundation is owned by High Chief Aloysius Ikegwuonu, who is also known as Bishop.

We heard that Ikegwuonu has been involved in a lot of philanthropy using the foundation?

Yes, He is a very kind man. I am surprised what people are saying about him. He is one man you will meet, and you would like to meet him again.

It is through this foundation that he built the Catholic Church where this incident happened. It is not only that Catholic Church, he has built two other Catholic Churches; St Aloysius at Eziora Ozubulu and St Francis at Egbema Ozubulu. Through this foundation, he has helped so many people and also granted scholarships to so many in Ozubulu and beyond.

What happened on Sunday has left us in a state of confusion and up until now, I must tell you that I am convinced that that act is pure terrorist attack. There are so many stories flying around that is not true, people are saying there is a problem between Ebubechukwuzo and some other people, and I can tell you that, that is not true, because till now, he has not lodged any complaint that he has a problem with anyone, so I don’t know where that information came from.

People say he is a drug lord, and that he took money belonging to another gang. So many stories, and I can tell you that we are even confused where some of these stories are coming from. What I can only say to this is that we will leave the police and other security agencies to do their work, and we urge them to do it well, and I believe the outcome of it will help us too to know what happened.

Ozubulu people are sad over this incident, but who knows, only God knows why it happened and also those behind this act, and the person or persons must be brought to book.

Now, let me ask you, where is your principal now

Makarfi talks tough, reveals what he won’t tolerate in PDP

Well, Ebubechukwuzo just left a few days ago.

When precisely?

He left on Thursday for Lagos, and on Friday he departed to South Africa. As we speak now, he is in South Africa.

Tell us what business he does?

He is an estate developer in South Africa. He has built so many houses even here in Nigeria and sold. He is also into property management, and he is an importer. He deals with beverages, spare parts, which he imports from, China. Ebubechukwuzo is not a drug pusher.

Concerning when he will be back, I can tell you he will be back by next week. We told him what happened and he is surprised and he will be coming by next week to take his father’s corpse. You know his father was among the victims and his step mother was also shot. I was at the hospital and the step mother is doing well, and she was asking after his husband, and he was asking question and we did not tell her that her husband has died.

Ebubechukwuzo has not complained about having problems with anyone. We have called to ask him if there is anyone he has problem with and he said no. we asked him if there is anyone he is suspecting and he said no. He was here just last week, and when he came back here, he moved freely without security.

“So I do not know where that information that he is a drug lord emanated from. He played football with youths in the village, bought football boots and gave out to many footballers in the community before leaving.

How about the stories that he has problem with some people?

I think some of you should give us brief about what you know, or the people that are saying this should come and give information about what they know, because this thing they are saying is alien to us.

But can you say you know him so very well?

I know him well, he is my secondary school mate. I know him very well, we attended the same secondary school before we joined our areas of businesses. Asking me if I know him very well, there is no way you can know everything about your wife, let alone me knowing everything about my friend. What I can tell you is that he is very close to me and I know a lot of things about him, and if he had problem with anyone, he would have told me. If he were into drug, too, I would know. I have told you all that I know.ý
