“Now, I don’t want to go into full details of the evidence-in-chief, but what caught my attention most was when Senator Ekweremadu was asked to respond to allegations that the organ donor was induced and that he was naive. The senator told the court that ‘no 21-year-old living in Lagos can be induced’.

“Asked why he thought so, he added, ‘because they are usually street-wise’. He also maintained throughout that he did everything legally, but that he discovered at a point that he was being scammed.

“Asked why he continued when he found that out, he said the urge to save his daughter’s life was his preoccupation, but that even at that, he was not ready to do anything illegally.
