9News Nigeria reports that this is the week most people have waited for in anxiety and anticipation.
Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife will be sentenced, having been both convicted of human trafficking offences in the United kingdom.
It will mark the catastrophic fall from grace to grass for one of the most successful politicians in Nigeria since the present republic. In Nigeria, when we describe a politician as successful, it means that such politician knows how to stay in office for many years. Ike Ekweremadu was successful on that terms. But was then. He is done and out.
As everybody holds his breath waiting to know the number of years they would give him, 9News is preparing special reports on this case. We shall follow the case inch by inch.
9News Nigeria correspondent will be in court on Friday to observe every minute of it and how the Ekweremadus will take their fate.
