Sonia, the 25-year-old daughter of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, burst into tears yesterday after her parents were convicted by a British court.
The 60-year-old senator, his 56-year-old spouse Beatrice and Dr. Obinna Obeta, 51, were convicted of conspiring to exploit David Nwamini.

They will be sentenced on May 5 and could face up to 10 years in jail.

The trio were found guilty by the United Kingdom (UK) Magistrate’s Court of trafficking Nwamini from Nigeria to Britain to provide a kidney for Ekweremadu’s 25-year-old daughter, Sonia, a statement from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said yesterday.

Sonia was cleared of the same charge for which her parents and the Nigerian doctor were convicted.

Free Hospital in Camden, North London.

He claimed he was told to pretend to be Sonia’s cousin to get the transplant approved.

But a consultant working in the NHS hospital refused to remove the vital organ, having become suspicious because the volunteer kidney donor appeared initially ignorant of his mission.

Nwamini reportedly told police investigators he had no idea his kidney was to be removed until he was taken to the Royal Free to meet the surgeon.

He ran away, sleeping on the street for about three days, before walking into the Staines Police Station on May 5, 2022.
