All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Joe Igbokwe, has tackled Lloyd Ikechukwu Ekweremadu, the son of convicted Nigerian senator, Ike Ekweremadu, for holding an elaborate wedding ceremony despite his parent being in prison.
Naija News earlier reported that Lloyd on Saturday tied the knot with his lover, Tiffany Adaobi Obinna-Uzor.
The wedding ceremony, which was held at the Basilica of Grace, Anglican Communion, Gudu District Abuja, had in attendance the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Peter Obi and other top politicians.
Recall that Ekweremadu, on the 23rd of June 2022, was charged with conspiring to arrange the travel of a 21-year-old boy, David Ukpo, from Lagos into the UK to harvest organs.
On 23rd of March, 2023, Ekweremadu, his wife, and Dr Obeta were convicted of conspiring to exploit the boy for his kidney.
Reacting to Ekweremadu’s son’s wedding ceremony, Joe Igbokwe, in a post on his Facebook page, said the event would have been held on a low-key, considering the predicament of the parents.
According to the APC chieftain, Llody would have waited till his parents regained freedom before organising such an event.
He wrote: “If I were to be Ekeremmadu’s son, I would not have staged this elaborate wedding ceremony with my father and mother in prison. I would have done a low-key marriage ceremony and waited till my parents are free. This generation scares me stiff”
