“I join men and women of goodwill to plead for clemency for Sen. Ike Ekweremadu.

“Considering the psychological trauma, Sonia, the daughter, would be going through, knowing that her parents are in jail because they tried to save her from a health condition she had no control over,” Dabiri-Erewa pleaded.

She implored the UK government to temper justice with mercy, and admitted that “mistakes have been made, and lessons learnt”.

The NIDCOM boss posited that though there is no ignorance before the law, Ekweremadu and his wife acted under natural instincts of parents to save their ailing daughter, and not for commercial purposes.
