Labour Party Presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi has called for justice to prevail against ex-Deputy Senate President, Senaator Ike Ekweremadu amid controversy of alleged organ harvesting in the UK.
Mr Obi, via his Twitter page, on Friday, prayed for the family and sought God’s hand for justice in the case.
His tweet reads: “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.”
Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice were arrested at Heathrow airport, London and arraigned in 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 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, requesting a visa for the alleged minor.
