Ike Ekweremadu, a former deputy senate president, and his wife Beatrice may not be found guilty of the alleged organ harvesting accusation in the United Kingdom, according to former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode.
Recall how the Metropolitan Police detained the couple and filed charges against them in court for allegedly enabling the flight of a young Nigerian for organ harvesting while they were trying to rescue their sick daughter Sonia.
While the inquiry is underway, they are now in the UK authorities’ custody.
Asserting that Ekweremadu would not be implicated in trafficking, FK had earlier expressed hope that the pair would be released.
Reiterating his opinion, FFK in a statement he personally signed on Sunday, said he is convinced that the lawmaker and his wife would be innocent when investigation is concluded.
He said, “As I said from the outset, I cannot and will not condemn my friend and brother Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his beautiful wife unless I see the evidence of their wrongdoing or they are convicted by a court of law.
“I am now convinced that there is NO evidence and that they will NOT be convicted.
“There is also a distinct possibility that the charges may eventually be dropped or thrown out by the court if the British really want to play it fairly.
“I believe that the London Metropolitan Police have acted hastily and in error or that they are simply behaving in a typically racist manner all in an attempt to demonize and stigmatise a Nigerian public figure and Nigerians generally even though the evidence before them cannot possibly justify the charge or a conviction”.
