Popular critic and Social Commentator, Farooq Kperogi has given some insight into an Organ Harvesting Case facing Ex-deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice.
Ekweremadu and his wife are currently in police custody in the United Kingdom after getting arrested on suspicion of Organ Harvesting. They were denied bail by a Uxbridge Court on Thursday.
Speaking on the matter, Kperogi wrote: “Organ harvesting doesn’t mean killing someone and selling their body parts for “money” or other kinds of “ritual.”
“It’s a term for surgically removing a body organ, such as a kidney, from a healthy person who can live without it and transplanting it to the body of someone who is in danger of dying without it.”
“It’s a crime in the UK and elsewhere if this is done without the consent of the organ donor.”
“Ekweremadu’s child needs an organ to survive, and he is alleged to have brought in a donor from Nigeria whose consent he and his wife didn’t seek.”
“Contrary to what people are saying on social media, he didn’t plan on killing someone for “ritual.”
