UNLESS immediate diplomatic intervention comes her way, the fate of a Nigerian citizen, Mrs Julie Osamese Ihdehyen, from Edo state now urgently seeking medical attention in an Italian hospital, hangs in the balance.

Her predicament is said to have followed the ill treatment meted to her by some Italian “medical criminals’ in an Italian hospital known as Amideos Avoya hospital.

A petition from Iyke Ezeugo, a Brekete Family Consultant dated 24 November, 2015 and specifically addressed to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara in respect of an allegation of stolen kidney and attempted murder of Mrs Julie Osamese Ihdehyen, is already before the parliament for immediate legislative intervention.

However, the Chairman, House Committee on Diaspora, Rita Orji who submitted the petition on the floor of the Parliament has assured that the National Assembly will get to the root of the matter with a view to ensuring that the victim gets Justice.

Orji told The Guardian that now that the matter has come to light, the House will expedite action on the petition and immediately set up a committee to look into the matter to make sure that Mrs Ihdehyen’s life is rescued from the threshold of death.

“It was a hidden thing before.

Security should be tight around her and we must act fast before it is too late.”
