Former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri has reacted to the sentencing of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice and their doctor, Obinna Obeta.
According to the activist, the case would not have been critical if the child involved was a Northern Nigerian Muslim.
This comes following the incarceration of Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice over multiple charges involving attempted organ harvesting.
According to Reno Omokri, his experience in Northern Nigeria taught him that Ike’s predicament would’ve been settled quietly without the involvement of the police.
Reno Omokri on how Ekweremadu’s case would’ve been settled ‘quietly’ in Northern Nigeria
“If a Northern Nigerian Muslim had been brought to London by a desperate Northern Nigerian Muslim seeking to save his daughter’s life, and the intended donor changed his mind, he would most likely have headed over to the nearest mosque, rather than the nearest police station.
Even in disagreement, my experience in Northern Nigeria taught me that they would rather use Islam for resolution than use other means. And that is one thing I will forever admire about Northern Nigerian Muslims. The fact that they tend to cover their own in good and bad times.
No matter what the world says about their own, they will cuddle him or her publicly, and any rebuke would be done in private. That lifestyle builds unity, and unity brings power!
I do not support what Ike Ekweremadu and his wife did. But I empathise with them. May God never permit me to be in the same position. I do not know what I would do in such circumstances. May the Almighty provide relief to the Ekweremadus. In Yeshua’s Name.”
