Senator Ekweremadu and an Evil Soul Called David – Fani-Kayode

Senator Ekweremadu I have done my research on this matter. As I said from the outset, I cannot and will not condemn my friend and brother Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his beautiful wife unless I see the evidence of their wrongdoing or they are convicted by a court of law. I am now convinced that there is NO evidence and that they will NOT be convicted. There is also a distinct possibility that the charges may eventually be dropped or thrown out by the court if the British really want to play it fairly. See Also: Ekweremadu Case: The Youngman is 22yrs, Not 15yrs, NIS I believe that the London Metropolitan Police have acted hastily and in error or that they are simply behaving in a typically racist manner all in an attempt to demonise and stigmatise a Nigerian public figure and Niger...

There’s Nothing Like Money Ritual – Police Warns Killers
