Nigerian pastors have reportedly turned up at the Asokoro home of deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, to offer him special prayers, according to a report by Vanguard.
Photographs published on Twitter showed the pastors placing their hands on the PDP senator, who was on his knees.
Ekweremadu was recently interrogated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for alleged money laundering and properties acquired in Nigeria, United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates. In one of the photographs, the unsmiling senator listened to some preachment by one of the clergymen.
The trending photographs have been generating reactions on Twitter.
Those religious leaders who have been defending Ekweremadu should really bury their heads in shame.— Tunde Eneji (@iameneji) August 2, 2018
Seeing these assets the EFCC is asking Ekweremadu to explain, can they still defend their shameful acts before God?
Ekweremadu who developed high fever at EFCC Custody pleaded with EFCC to allow him seek medical attention abroad. He has been collecting Const. Allowce since 1999, yet he can't build one hospital that can treat him in Enugu or make laws that will make that happen. SHAME ON HIM.— Ayekooto (@DeeOneAyekooto) August 3, 2018
