UK court adjourns Ekweremadu’s case

UK court adjourns Ekweremadu’s case

A court in the United Kingdom on Thursday adjourned the case involving the former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, till October 31.

According to TheCable, Ekweremadu will be remanded in custody until the next adjourned date.

Ekweremadu, who is the lawmaker representing Enugu West Senatorial district, and his wife, Beatrice, are facing allegations of organ harvesting.

His wife was granted bail last week.

Ike was charged by the UK Metropolitan Police with conspiracy to facilitate the travel of another person for organ harvesting.

It is alleged Ike, 60, and his wife, Beatrice, 55, brought the 21-year-old man from Nigeria to the UK.

Prosecutors claim they planned to have his kidney removed so it could be given to their daughter.


“The position is that I have granted bail to Beatrice subject to some fairly stringent conditions but I have refused bail to Ike,” Daily Mail quoted the Common Serjeant of London, judge Richard Marks, to have ruled.

According to the court, prosecutors will not appeal the decision.

Prosecutor Tim Probert-Wood previously stated that the case involved “exploitation and organ harvesting.”

A doctor from the United Kingdom was accused of conspiring with Ekweremadu.

A UK-based doctor was accused of conspiring with Ekweremadu and his wife to smuggle a homeless man into the country in order to harvest his kidney for their daughter.

Obinna Obeta, 50, of Southwark, south London, has been charged under the Modern Slavery Act.

Obeta, who appeared in Bexley Magistrates’ Court on July 13, is accused of arranging the travel of Davi Ukpo, 21, from Nigeria to the UK.

He is also accused of conspiring with the lawmaker to arrange or facilitate the travel of the man with a view to him being exploited through organ harvesting.
