Commenting on the arrest of Senator Ike Ekweremadu by the UK Metropolitan police over alleged human trafficking of a 15 years old child for organ harvesting, the Catholic priest, assked how a 15 yeras old or parent of a 15-year-old consented to donate a kidney to Ike Ekweremadu’s daughter if not for poverty.
The Catholic priest lamented that politicians have lost their conscience as they trample on their people who have been made poor because of their bad leadership.
“In any way, you may want to look at the Ike Ekweremadu’s case while waiting for the full story to unfold, ask yourself, if not poverty how is it possible that the parent of a 15-year-old or the 15-year-old himself will consent to donate his organ to Ekweremadu?
“What most rich people do, how they trample on the poor and use them as they so wish without any qualm of conscience, if I talk about it, you will weep.”
