Organ Harvesting: Ike Ekweremadu’s wife might be innocent” – Fani-Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, suggested on Thursday that Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, may not be responsible for the alleged plot to harvest a child’s organ.


Remember that Ekweremadu and his wife were detained on Thursday in the UK and accused with conspiring to assist a minor’s trip for purported organ harvesting.

In response, Fani-Kayode said on his Facebook page that Ekweremadu ought to be treated as innocent until proven guilty by the court.

He wrote, “It is unacceptable and a serious crime under British law for a man to take a child into the United Kingdom to remove its organs FOR SOMEONE ELSE’S USE.

“Under the law, a child CAN NOT give its consent for such a course of action and neither can the parents give consent for such an abominable act on behalf of their wards.

“Children have rights. They are not slaves or chattel that can be bought or sold for their body parts.

“Their parents do NOT have the right to sell them off for this purpose or any other purpose and neither does anyone have the right to buy the child or any of his or her body parts.

“Despite all this, I refuse to assume that Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife are guilty of this wicked act unless and until I see the evidence or they are proved so by a duly constituted court of law.

“There is a presumption of innocence in criminal matters and this is what I hold on to.

“I pray for the Ekweremadu at this difficult time and I also pray for that poor child whose organs were to be removed.

“May God grant us more sensitivity, compassion, love and kindness in this country, especially for our children.” It might interest you to read Organ Harvesting: Meet Daughter of Ike Ekweremadu, Sonia who Needed kidney transplant
