Ike Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice will be sentenced on May 5 by the United Kingdom’s government, and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Parliament has written to the British government pleading for mercy.

It may be recalled that on March 23, the Ekweremadus and their doctor, Obiann Obeta, were found guilty by the Old Bailey court in the UK of facilitating the travel of a young man to Britain on behalf of Ekweremadu’s sick daughter, Sonia, with a view to his exploitation.
