Serves them right: Georgina Onuoha mocks Ike Ekweremadu

Popular Nollywood actress, Georgina Onuoha, publicly mocked Ike Ekweremadu, former Senate President, and his wife, Beatrice. This was after their imprisonment in the United Kingdom.

In March, after a six-week trial, Ekweremadu was convicted of organ trafficking, resulting in a unique sentencing under the Modern Slavery Act.

The UK Court handed him a prison term of nine years and eight months, while his wife Beatrice and Obinna Obetta received jail terms of four years and ten years, respectively.

And let the choir say Amen.

Before the sentencing, Ekweremadu, Beatrice, and Obeta were found guilty of conspiring to facilitate the travel of a young Nigerian man named David Nwamini to the UK with the purpose of exploiting him for his kidney. The kidney was intended to be used for the medical treatment of Ekweremadu’s daughter, Sonia.

Taunting them, the movie star wrote;

“And let the choir say Amen. Serves them right.
Do not take advantage of anyone because you are in a place of power. Dear Nigerian doctors, nurses, and caregivers, do not sacrifice your licenses for anyone let alone Nigerian politicians who deliberately neglect our healthcare system back home but can rush overseas to be treated by the same Nigerian clinicians they treat poorly back home.

As for the ex-senator, I hope they can extend his imprisonment. This same man was given millions if not billions to build hospitals back home in his state, he embezzled it. As for their daughter, I wish her well and good health. If she was better advised I’m sure she would have made a different choice. If you speak up and ask for help, I’m sure someone somewhere would have helped her out. Best of luck young woman and I pray God sends you help and healing.”
