A former deputy governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere is back on his feet after undergoing a successful surgical procedure.

Our correspondent could not ascertain the exact surgical procedure he underwent, but Prince Madumere who spent weeks at the hospital has recuperated and reintegrated into the society.

His wife who also fell sick within the period is also back on her feet.

Prince Madumere in a post on his Facebook page on Saturday expressed his profound gratitude to God for His mercies which saw him and his wife through.

He wrote; “Dear Friends, I am sorry that I have been away from this social network platform for some time now.

“I had a little health challenge, which has been taken care of by the special grace of God and I have been made whole.

“I am up and running now. I want you to also join me in thanksgiving to God for His mercies upon my wife who also took ill at the same time. Devil tried but God will always win.

“I am aware that a lot has happened but you can trust that God is in control and He will bless who He will bless.

“To you my friends here, I miss you all. We shall all work together for a greater Imo and Nigeria at large. God bless you all!”

Prince Madumere served as Chief of Staff, Government House Owerri from May 2011 till March 2013 when he was elevated to the position of deputy governor after the impeachment of Sir Jude Agbaso.

He was elected deputy governor alongside Owelle Rochas Okorocha in 2015 but impeached on a phoney charge of being an ex-convict in 2018.

His impeachment was however quashed by the court before the expiration of the second term in office of Okorocha.

The National Industrial Court, Owerri Division in May 2021 ordered the Imo State Government to pay Prince Madumere his entitlement totalling N1.9billion only for the state government to rush to a state High Court, a court of coordinate jurisdiction to obtain an order stalling the implementation of the Industrial Court’s judgement.

The state police command on June 3 this year also withdrew the security details of the judge of Owerri Division of the Industrial Court, Justice I. S. Galadima and arrested and detained four members of staff of the court who were going to implement the garnishee order absolute slammed on the account on the state government at a new generation bank.

Peeved by the development, the president of NICN, Justice Benedict Kanyip ordered the shutting down of the Owerri court.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Bar Association, NBA has threatened to sanction the Imo State Attorney General, Cyprian Akaolisa and all those involved in activities that led to the closure of the Owerri Division of the Industrial Court
