Nigerians on social media have reacted to the jail sentence of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice in the United Kingdom.

Naija News earlier reported that the 60-year-old Nigerian senator, his wife, and a medical doctor, Obinna Obeta were found guilty of conspiring to bring a market trader in Lagos to the UK for the purpose of harvesting his kidney for the use of the politician’s 25-year-old daughter, Sonia.

Ekweremadu’s wife Beatrice, 56, was handed 4 years, six months jail term, while the doctor involved in the case of organ trafficking got a 10-year jail term with his medical licence suspended.

Reacting to the development, some Nigerians commended the British court while others extended prayers to the family in this trying time.
