A Nigerian-American professor, author, media scholar, newspaper columnist, blogger and activist, Farook Kperogi, has reacted to the arrest of former deputy senate president, senator Ike Ekweremadu and wife by the Metropolitan Police in the United Kingdom.
The duo were arrested by the operatives of the UK police over alleged trafficking a child to the country to harvest the organs.
Meanwhile, Kperogi in a statement said, the embattled Senator did not commit ritual killing as it is widely speculated.
He explained that Ekweremadu whose child is sick failed the law by taking a child to the UK for organ harvesting without proper consent.
He said, “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.”
“Some Naija people no go kill pesin with their their atavistic thinking. Everything is “ritual sacrifice
