Nollywood actress Georgina Onuoha has taken to social media to react to the conviction of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, his wife Beatrice and their doctor, Obinna Obeta.
The Quest Times reports that Sen Ike Ekweremadu has been jailed in the United Kingdom for conspiring to traffic a Lagos market trader to the UK to harvest his kidney.
Ekweremadu was sentenced to nine years and eight months in jail, his wife Beatrice Ekweremadu got four years and six months while Dr Obeta bagged 10 years in jail.
Reacting to the development on social media, Georgina Onouha said that the sentencing serves them right and warned others not to take advantage of anyone because they are in a place of power.
The actress 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 health care system back home but can rush overseas to be treated by the same Nigerians 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 send you help and healing.”
