Obi prayed for the healing of Ekweremadu’s daughter.

Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice were arrested at Heathrow airport, London and arraigned in court for allegedly plotting to harvest the kidney of a Nigerian minor.

But, the duo pleaded not guilty to the charges at the Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court.

Magistrate Lois Sheard remanded both defendants in custody ahead of their hearing on July 7th.

However, the Nigerian lawmaker denied the allegations of organ harvesting, while sharing a letter to the UK High Commission in Nigeria, requesting a visa for the alleged minor.

“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.”
