House Of Reps Plead for Mercy Over The Ekweremadus, Writes UK Government

The UK government and parliament have been urged by the House of Representatives to intervene in Ike Ekweremadu and Beatrice’s sentencing.

The MPs ask the British court to “temper justice and mercy” while deciding how long to sentence the lawmaker.

Additionally, the lawmakers urged the federal government to use diplomatic means to “intervene” in the lawmaker’s trial.

The resolution was approved at plenary session on Tuesday after Toby Okechukwu, an Enugu member, had his motion of urgent public concern adopted.

The lower legislative chamber’s clerk was thereafter tasked by the lawmakers to “convey” their resolutions to the British Embassy, the UK government, and the parliament in writing once the motion was approved.

Ekweremadu is due to be sentenced on May 5 at the Central Criminal Court, Old Bailey in the UK.
