Harold Ekwerekwu had since seized to be  the Family lawyer and was not qualified to represent the family in any capacity as the solicitor and family advocate.

Addressing the press shortly after their meeting,a member of the family and Chairman, Okposieke Family Land Committee, Ezedinobi Ben Ekwerekwu said that the claim by the two dissident members of the family to cause disunity and disaffection among Okposieke Family, Onitsha has been buried by the recent resolution.

He noted that in consonant with Onitsha Native Law and Custom, the family has also appointed the oldest man in the family,Nnabuenyi Igueze Ekwerekwu to hold forth as head and “Diokpa” of the family pending the second burial of the late family head, Eustace Orjekwe Ekwerekwu who passed on last year,2020 according to the tradition of Onitsha people.

The family spokesman cautioned any Family member, person or group against promoting disaffection among members of the family as recently witnessed it in the outburst and false claims by the two family members whom he alleged had been feeding the public ,Anambra State Government and Judiciary with frivolous information that Harold Ekwerekwu and Nnabuenyi Igueze Ekwerekwu were no longer the Okposieke Family Lawyer and Family Head(Diokpa) respectively.
