Senator Stella Oduah, ex-husband’s and father late Maxwell Etoromi, Lt. Col. Satchie Emmanuel Etoromi (Rtd.), has pleaded with his ex-wife to give his son’s corpse to him for proper burial.
In a letter he dispatched to the traditional ruler of Akili Ozizor, Ogbaru in Anambra state, Igwe D.O Oduah, Etoromi said the Senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District, who had been in custody of their son, did not tell him of his death.
He also said he read about his son’s death on social media, urging the royal father to prevail on his ex-wife to release his son’s corpse to him so he could be buried in Warri, his paternal home.
“I am surprised to see in the internet stories that my son Maxwell Omabuwa Temisaren Obiechina Wereyesigha Toritseju Chinedu Etoromi who Stella delivered for us on 14th March 1988 at 05.00 hour in St Mary`s Hospital Ugboroke Warri is dead.
Up till now Stella has not told me my son died in her custody. There is rumour that my son will be buried in Akili Ozizor. That is not acceptable at all. My son must be brought to me in Warri for internment.
Stella should also bring back Eyituoyo Felix Kenneth Oritsetimeyin Ikechukwu Etoromi who was delivered on 1st August 1989 at 0 5.30 hour in St Mary`s Hospital Ugboroke Warri whom she took away from our home over twenty years ago,” the letter also read.
Recall that a vigil mass was held on Monday, August 29 for late Maxwell Chinedu Etoromi. The vigil mass which was presided over by Archbishop of Onitsha, Most Reverend Valerian Okeke, was held in his mother’s hometown, Akili-Ozizor, Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra state.
