The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, has once again appealed to the United Kingdom, UK, court to grant bail to the detained Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Page 36 learnt.

Recall, that the Nigerian Federal Lawmaker from the South-East, was charged alongside his wife, Beatrice, who has been released on bail, for alleged organ harvesting of a kidney from a young Nigerian boy, for their daughter, Sonia, who was revealed to be battling a kidney ailment.

Recall also, that the UK court refused to grant Senator Ekweremadu bail, arguing that he is a flight risk.

You may further recall, that his ill daughter released a statement on Monday, detailing her condition, and also revealing that her dad suffers also from a kidney ailment, while she appealed for a donor to save her life.

Reacting however, the National President of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, begged the UK court to consider the health condition of the Lawmaker.

Okwu in a statement on Tuesday, said that there is no way Senator Ekweremadu would jump bail, considering his status in the Nigerian and African society.

His exact words: “In the light of the revelations by Senator Ike Ekweremadu’s daughter, we want to appeal again that he be released on bail.

“It is always said that a court trial is for the living. You cannot try a man who is dead; so considering the current revelation of the Senator’s health status, our plea is that he be released on bail to enable him to attend to his health and face his trial.

“Senator Ike Ekweremadu is not just a former Deputy Senate President, but former Speaker, ECOWAS Parliament. There is no way such a calibre of person would jump bail.

“We urge the UK court to reconsider its stand on this matter, in order to avoid a double jeopardy. Should Ekweremadu and his daughter die in the course of this case, it would have amounted to a double jeopardy.

“He is still an accused person, and we have never doubted his innocence from day one of this episode. This is why we are again making this very passionate appeal.”
