Our family may never be the same again, says Ekweremadu’s daughter, Sonia

After United Kingdom (UK) court’s sentenced her parent, Ike Ekweremadu and Beatrice, for their involvement in an organ-harvesting plot, the daughter of former Deputy Senate President, Sonia Ekweremadu has said she feels guilty for the action.

In an interview with BBC, the 25-year-old expressed her disbelief and sorrow over the events that have unfolded, stating that her family may never be the same again.

The UK court had sentenced Ike Ekweremadu to nine years and eight months imprisonment, while his wife received four years and six months for attempting to harvest a kidney from an underage Nigerian to aid their daughter’s health.

The doctor involved in the case of organ trafficking got a 10-year jail term with his medical license suspended.

She said “I don’t think it will ever be the same again. And obviously, I feel guilty because I feel like all these have happened because of me.

“Life is just some dynamic. Like you’re one day in your house chilling and the next day your whole life is turned around.

“I do not have a hand in all the medical activities, my family is the one handling everything.

“I understand the conviction, however, I personally disagree with it. That is from a very biased perspective as their daughter, I will obviously always back my parents. she lamented.
