Appeal for clemency ahead of ex-Deputy Senate President’s sentencing for organ harvesting.

As the sentencing of former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and his wife for organ harvesting approaches, Nigerians and Africans are appealing to the UK Court for clemency. Members of the Ikeoha Mpu Pacesetters League (IMPL) have joined their voices, calling for the UK Court to release the couple unconditionally. The people of Mpu community held a prayer vigil to pray for divine intervention, as they believe Ekweremadu’s absence is already affecting them.

The IMPL is a group of over 500 individuals who were empowered by Senator Ekweremadu through the sponsorship of their education and securing of jobs in different spheres of life. They claim that Ikeoha was a big tree, and his fall would spell doom for thousands. The President General of the Association, Chijioke Benjamin Ezekwe, maintains that the conviction of Senator Ekweremadu and his wife did not represent their true character and contributions to humanity and the development of Africa.

Despite the Court pronouncing them guilty, the faith of the people of Mpu community remains strong, and their belief unchanged that God would intervene on their behalf. Leading the prayer, the pastor in charge of Ancient Path Revival Assembly Mpu, Nathaniel Nwankwo, maintained that the community had not relented in praying and crying to God for help, mercy, and intervention.

The traditional ruler of Amokofia Mpu, Igwe Cyprian Ije, appeals to the Federal Government and other well-meaning Nigerians to lend their voices to ensure Ekweremadu’s release. The royal father lamented that so many indigent students under Ikeoha scholarship scheme have discontinued their studies due to lack of funds, and the town had become a ghost of itself since his arrest in June last year.
