“Serves them right” – Georgina Onuoha reacts to sentencing of the Ekweremadus and their doctor
Veteran Nollywood actress, Georgina Onuoha, has reacted to the news of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, being sentenced to nine years and eight months in prison for organ trafficking by the Central Criminal Court, Old Bailey, UK.
His wife, Beatrice, was sentenced to four years and six months in prison, while the doctor who assisted the couple in the crime, Dr. Obinna Obeta, received a ten-year sentence.
Expressing joy at having justice served, Georgina took to Instagram to comment that it served them right for trying to take advantage of the young man because they were in a position of power.
According to her, the politician was given millions to build hospitals in his state and he embezzled the funds instead.
“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.”
