Former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu have just been denied bail by Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court in London

Ike Ekweremadu and his wife will remain in custody till 7th July.

The Senator representing Enugu West Senatorial zone and his wife were arrested by the Metropolitan police over an alleged conspiracy to bring a child to the UK in order to harvest organs.

A Met Police statement said: “A woman and a man were charged today with conspiring to arrange the travel of a child into the UK in order to harvest organs.

“The charges follow an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime team.

“[A] Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu, 55 (10.9.66) of Nigeria is charged with conspiracy to arrange/facilitate the travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting.

“[B] Ike Ekweremadu, 60 (12.05.62) of Nigeria is charged with conspiracy to arrange/facilitate the travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting.

“They have both been remanded in custody and will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court later today.

“The investigation was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation in May 2022.

“A child has been safeguarded and we are working closely with partners on continued support.

“As criminal proceedings are now underway we will not be providing further details.”

Meanwhile, fresh facts have emerged on the alleged travel of the victim.
In a letter circulating online, Ekweremadu allegedly wrote the British high commission introducing a certain Ukpo David being medically investigated for the purpose of donating a kidney to Miss Sonia Ekweremadu.
