Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has reacted to the sentencing of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, his wife Beatrice and their doctor for organ trafficking.
Taking to his Instagram page, Reno wrote;
‘’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.”
