Sonia Ekweremadu, daughter of former Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has spoken about her parent’s conviction in a BBC interview.

She said although she understands why her parents were convicted, she disagrees with it albeit from a “very biased perspective as their daughter”.

“I will obviously always always back my parents. However, the law has taken its course and we just have to now move forward as a family,” Ms Ekweremadu told BBC.

In the interview which was conducted before the sentencing, she said it has been hard for her to wrap her head around the conviction.

The court also sentenced Mr Ekweremadu’s wife, Beatrice, to four years and six months in prison while a doctor who colluded with them, Obinna Obeta, was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

The younger Ms Ekweremadu who is still undergoing dialysis blames herself for what has happened to her parents. “I feel guilty, I feel like all this has happened because of me.”

She is suffering from a health condition called Nephrotic Syndrome, where the kidney does not function properly. Her survival depends on continuous dialysis for the rest of her life or a kidney transplant which she hopes to get soon.
