Top chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP on Saturday rallied round Llyod, the son of incarcerated former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, also a chieftain of the party, when he tied the knot with his lover, Tiffany Adaobi Obinna Uzor in Abuja.

Three former Senate Presidents; Anyim Pius Anyim, David Mark and Bukola Saraki alongside Senator Dino Melaye, the PDP governorship candidate in Kogi State among others, stood in for  the senior Ekweremadu, and his wife Beatrice.

The wedding, which took place at Basilica of Grace Anglican Church, Gudu District, Abuja, also attracted top chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, including Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Benjamin Kalu; Governor Francis Nwifuru of Ebonyi State, and soon to be sworn-in Minister of Works, Senator David Umahi, among other guests, who graced the occasion in solidarity with the Ekweremadus.

Llyod is a commissioner-designate in Enugu State.

The Street Journal had reported how Senator Ekweremadu, who represented Enugu West senatorial district in the Senate for about two decades, was jailed in the United Kingdom  alongside his wife Beatrice after they were found guilty of organ trafficking.

While Senator Ekweremadu was sentenced to prison for nine years and eight months, his wife was sentenced to four years and six months.

A doctor who colluded with them, Obinna Obeta, was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Ekweremadu and the two others allegedly procured a 21-year-old Nigerian and flew him to the UK with the intention to harvest his kidney for their ailing daughter, Sonia Ekweremadu.
