Ike Ekweremadu, a former deputy senate president, has been given a 10-year and 6-month prison term by a UK court on Friday for his role in a scheme to obtain a man’s kidney for his ill daughter.
Recall that the three defendants, Ekweremadu, Beatrice, and Obeta, were found guilty of conspiring to organize the journey of a young Nigerian man named David Nwamini to Britain in order to take advantage of him for his kidney.
Sonia, the ill daughter of Ekweremadu, needs the organ.
A conviction at the Old Bailey, London’s Central Criminal Court, is anticipated today after their six-week trial.
Hugh Davies, the prosecutor, told the jury that Ekweremadu’s actions demonstrated “entitlement, dishonesty, and hypocrisy”.
