While reacting to the arrest and detainment of the former deputy Senate President of Nigeria, Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has expressed his full support for Ike Ekweremadu and his wife who were detained in the United Kingdom amid controversy of alleged organ harvesting.
Peter Obi had also prayed for the healing of Ekweremadu’s daughter.
Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice were arrested at Heathrow airport, London and arraigned in a British court for allegedly plotting to harvest the kidney of a Nigerian minor. But, the duo pleaded not guilty to the charges at the Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court.
Magistrate Lois Sheard, who was the hearing judge in the Court had remanded both defendants in custody ahead of their hearing on July 7th.
However, the Nigerian lawmaker denied the allegations of organ harvesting, while sharing a letter to the UK High Commission in Nigeria, where he had requested a visa for the alleged minor.
Obi via his Twitter page prayed for the family and sought God’s hand for justice in the case.
His tweet read: “My family and I are with the Ekweremadus over their travail.
“We join all men of goodwill in praying for the healing of their daughter and commit them into God’s hand for justice to be done.”
While reacting to the news of the recent arrest and detaining of the former Senate President of Nigeria, Ike Ekweremadu and his Wife by the British Security officials, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has on Thursday expressed delight and satisfaction over the arrest of Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife in London over alleged organ harvesting.
Reacting, MASSOB said Ekweremadu is suffering from the sabotage campaign, he is leading against national Justice and Peter Obi emerging as the next president of Nigeria.
”We are ashamed of these sacrilegious and irresponsible acts of a so-called national leader. What kind of monetary inducement will make Ike Ekweremadu and his wife stoop so low for this criminality if not they are mentally slaved and subjected by the Hausa Fulani oligarchy as political errand boy and girl.
