Anti and pro-Ike Ekweremadu protests were staged in front of the court ahead of the proceedings at a London court on Tuesday.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Ekweremadu, Nigeria’s former Deputy Senate President and his wife, Beatrice, appeared in court for their trial over alleged organ harvesting. However, his accused daughter, Sonia, was unable to attend as she is in the hospital.
Mr Ekweremadu, 60, appeared at the Old Bailey court wearing a grey tracksuit top, speaking only to say “Yes, miss” when asked to confirm his name.
He is accused along with his wife Beatrice, daughter Sonia and a doctor of bringing a 21-year-old man from Nigeria to have his kidney removed illegitimately.
Ekweremadu has spent 224 days in the custody of United Kingdom (UK) authorities, thus causing worry among his supporters, majority of whom are Nigerians.
Protesters gathered at the court on Tuesday to protest the continued detention of the embattled lawmaker in UK custody.
Anti- Ekweremadu demonstrators meanwhile protested the Enugu politician’s alleged continued receipt of wage as a fedeal lawmaker.
Tinubu is a game, he’s distancing himself from this administration’ who sold GMB to us? Nigerians knows the game plan already.
Where does Tinubu fits into this story and the picture?
Protest for allegedly continued receipt of wage by the lawmakers isn’t news in our naija; only God Almighty would judge our political leaders for the pains being inflicted on the poor people.
Bola Ahmed Tinubu here was still referring too PDP government for good 16years. They met dollar @ 200 before their scandalous 16 years miss rule dollar has skyrocketed to #500 to a dollar
Obasanjo, Atiku and Jonathan was Tinubu targets not President Buhari
Tinubu is badly sick
