Barely 24 hours after some Nigerians and his supporters on Twitter celebrated Ike Ekweremadu’s arrest by the Metropolitan Police in the United Kingdom, Peter Obi has prayed for the family of Ekweremadu and the quick healing of their daughter.
The former Deputy Senate President and his wife Beatrice, were on Thursday remanded in the UK Police custody after they were arraigned before the Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court for alleged conspiracy to facilitate the travel of another person for organ harvesting.
The UK Metropolitan Police had, in a statement confirming the arrest of the couple, said the duo were charged to court, following an investigation by the police’ specialist crime team.
According to the Metropolitan Police, investigation was launched into the allegation, after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation, in May 2022.
Reacting to this, Obi, who is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 election wrote on Twitter, “My family and I are with the Ekweremadu’s 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. -PO”
