The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on Friday, committed former deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu; and his wife, Beatrice, “into God’s hand for justice to be done”.
Obi said this on his social media page, following the arrest and arraignment of Ekweremadu and his wife over child organ harvesting charges in the United Kingdom.
Obi also called for prayers for the recovery of the daughter of the former Senate president.
He tweeted, “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”
PUNCH Metro had earlier reported that Ekweremadu and his wife were arrested by men of the Metropolitan Police over alleged organ trafficking in the United Kingdom.
They were charged to court but denied bail and the case has been adjourned to July 7.
