The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi says he and his family are praying for Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his family over their travails.
Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, were arrested by the London Metropolitan police over links to organ harvesting. They are being charged for allegedly conspiring to bring a child to the UK for organ harvesting.
Hours after the news broke, Obi took to his Twitter handle to show his support for the Enugu lawmaker but called for justice.
“My family and I are with the Ekweremadu’s over their travail,” he tweeted on Friday morning.
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
