Labour Party flagbearer, Peter Obi, has taken to social media to pray for the family of former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, who was arrested and arraigned before a UK magistrate court on Thursday, June 23, over alleged organ harvesting.

Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, were arraigned in court for taking a 15-year-old boy from Nigeria to the UK to allegedly harvest his kidney for their daughter who needs a kidney transplant.

The police in a statement said the arrest comes after an investigation by the police specialist crime team.

Taking to his Twitter page, Peter Obi wrote;

"My family and I are with the Ekweremadu’s over their travail. We join all men of goodwill in praying for the healing of their daughter and commit them into God’s hand for justice to be done. -PO"

Ike Ekweremadu was in the news few days ago for comment about Peter Obi presidential ambition.

He was of the view that the South East will not vote for the Labour Party presidential candidate.
