Nigeria's "New" Commitment to Protect Senator Uzamere's Abandoned African-American
Is it possible??? Can it be that the Nigerian government has finally looked with favor on the plight of the African-American
wife and child that the now former Senator Uzamere abandoned like a toilet seat on which he did his filthy, illegal
business, without even turning around long enough to see if he'd left a stinking mess?
Well, based on the response that the International Centre for Nigerian Law received from the Right Honorable Jack Straw, Lord High Chancellor and Minister of Her Majesty's
Ministry of Justice, it appears as though the Nigerian government has become a bit more cooperative regarding the enforcement
of my petition for child and spousal support.
I made several
attempts to enlist the assistance of various Nigerian governmental agencies but all my attempts were ignored. Even my daughter Tara's rights as a citizen of Nigeria
were ignored by the Nigerian government. However, after sending an e-mail to Lord Jack Straw of Great Britain's
Ministry of Justice, less than a week after sending the e-mail, I received ICFNL's response, albeit with a few "ruffled feathers" because of my "unjust
criticism" (see below).
I remember a very interesting statement made
by an astute Anglo-Caribbean lady employed by Her Majesty's Ministry of Justice: "those who won't
hear, must feel."
All I can say to this very intelligent and
personable lady is "Amen."

Your emails have been passed on to us in Q&A and we have taken the pains to read
all your emails and visit the website you linked to (http://www.thecrimesofsenatoruzamere.com) and while sympathising with you, we wish to point
out that you are not correct when you write that
In spite of several letters of complaint that I sent to various Nigerian agencies, no one in the Nigerian
government will assist me. That the child I bore with Senator Uzamere is Nigerian by operation of Nigerian law means
nothing to them.
In our humble view, that is very unjust criticism.
Nigeria is run according
to Nigerian law and our laws do not allow Government and its agencies to step into or interfere in a private disputes between
a husband and his wife. It seems to us that you problem with your husband is one of private family law and your best recourse
is to brief Solicitors in Nigeria to take up you case and or represent you in proceedings.
cannot hide. He is a well known public figure and a sitting Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Serving legal processes
on him should not be a problem.
Arising from the foregoing, we advise that you contact our in-house law firm ICFNL Legal Practitioners using
ICFNL@nigeria-law.org. Please give them full details of the legal proceedings
and what the US Court wants done and they will do it. If you obtain a judgement in America, ICFNL Legal Practitioners will
have it registered and enforced in Nigeria.
course, ICFNL Legal Practitioners will charge you a fee for their services.

First, please allow me to thank you for taking
time out of your very busy schedule to read my e-mail. Additionally, if there is anything in the writing of this correspondence
that displays poor manners or unfamiliarity with the customary way of approaching dignitaries in your country, I
humbly beg your pardon.
Below please find an e-mail that I sent to various individuals in Nigeria regarding a legal situation
for which I need a resolution. I contacted your office because I believe that the Nigerian judicial system still subscribes
to the British judicial system, and that some of the individuals who work within the Ministry of Justice may have some
familiarity with the Nigerian judicial system.
My query concerns my husband, the former Senator Ehigie Edobor Uzamere of Nigeria.
He has dual citizenship with the United States and Nigeria, and he spent some time in England.
As the e-mail below explains, my husband is required to appear in Family Court on July 25, 2008 at 9:00 AM
to make arrangements to pay spousal and child support that he has refused to pay for the entire length of our marriage.
However, I believe that because of various verified complaints that I swore out to several governmental agencies, that my
husband will not show up, and that I will win by default. The harrowing experience that my daughter and I suffered at
the hands of the former Senator Uzamere can be viewed at http://www.thecrimesofsenatoruzamere.com.
These are the questions that I posed in the e-mail that I sent to the International
Centre for Nigerian Law. I also added a question to include your country's judicial system:
1) How do I file my
New York State Family Court judgment for financial support with the Nigerian courts?
2) With which court should I file the judgment?
3) How can the Nigerian courts prevent
my husband from hiding his assets?
4) Is there a legal provision or agreement between the United States and countries in Western
Europe that renders a person facing arrest for non-payment of child/spousal support "persona non grata?"
5) What is the proper way to prepare
a legal document to present the child/spousal support judgment?
In spite of several letters of complaint that
I sent to various Nigerian agencies, no one in the Nigerian government will assist me. That the child I bore with Senator
Uzamere is Nigerian by operation of Nigerian law means nothing to them. She lives with me, needs money for nursing school
and other things, but neither Senator Uzamere nor the rest of the Nigerian government will help me.
Your Honor, I humbly beg that you grant
me a small bit of your expertise to resolve this situation.
Again, thank you for taking time out of very busy schedule to help a immigration marriage

Subject: New York State Family Court Case Docket # F-19644-08 --
Cheryl D. Uzamere vs. Ehigie Edobor Uzamere
International Centre for Nigerian Law
Senator Ehigie Edobor Uzamere is required to appear before the Honorable R. Richard Spegele, Support Magistrate, at the Family
Court of the State of New York, County of Kings on July 25, 2008 at 9:00 am (refer to http://www.thecrimesofsenatoruzamere.com/will_senator_evade.html.) I made an
effort to ensure that both my husband and his attorney were properly served with the court papers.
My husband knows that I filed complaints about his crimes of identity fraud (see http://www.thecrimesofsenatoruzamere.com/success.html), immigration fraud, refusal to pay
child support for our child's entire life, economic deprivation (domestic violence), Internet cyberstalking/harassment
by friends/family and other crimes with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement, the New York State Attorney General's Office, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Administration
for Children and Families, the U.S. Department of State, the Internet Crime Complaint Center and the U.S. Internal Revenue
Service. My husband also knows that he and his attorney, Jack Gladstein are in default because they have never responded
to my action for divorce since November 20, 2007 (refer to http://www.thecrimesofsenatoruzamere.com/legal_marriage.html).
Based on the above, I am certain that my husband will not appear and that I will win based on his
and his attorney's default.
As winning my case against the former Senator Uzamere is imminent, I have a few questions:
1) How do I file my New York State Family Court judgment for financial support with the Nigerian
2) With which court should I file the judgment?
3) How can the Nigerian courts prevent my husband from hiding his assets?
According to the Matrimonial Causes Act of Nigeria of 1990, Part VI, Recognition
of Degrees, paragraph 81(2)(a) states: "A dissolution or annulment
of a marriage effected in accordance with the law of a foreign country shall be recognised as valid in Nigeria where, at the
date of the institution of the proceedings that resulted in the dissolution or annulment, the party at whose instance the
dissolution or annulment was effected (or, if it was effected at the instance of both parties, either of those parties)...in
the case of the dissolution of a marriage or the annulment of a voidable marriage, was domiciled in that foreign country..."
Matrimonial Causes Act of Nigeria of 1990, Part VIII, Enforcement of Degrees, paragraph
90(1) states: "Where a decree made under this Act orders the payment of money to a person, any moneys payable
under the decree may be recovered as a judgment debt in a court of competent jurisdiction." (http://www.nigeria-law.org/Matrimonial%20Causes%20Act.htm -- this link was not originally part of the letter).
I hope that, considering the fact that the child I
bore with the former Senator Uzamere is, by birth and operation and law a Nigerian, and considering the horrific travails
that my daughter and I suffered at the hands of my husband, please be so kind as to regard my humble request for help and
for justice the same way you would if Senator Uzamere did the same thing to your mother, your sister or your daughter.
