A socio-economic activist, Aisha Yesufu, has reacted to reports making the rounds that two Nigerians were arrested in the United Kingdom over alleged organ harvesting.

Reports making the rounds said one Ike Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu were arrested in the UK for allegedly facilitating the “travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting”.

According to the metropolitan police, “Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu, 55 (10.9.66) of Nigeria is charged with conspiracy to arrange/facilitate travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting,” the statement reads.

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

Reacting, Aisha Yesufu, in a tweet on her official Twitter handle expressed fear over the development.

According to her, such cases may have been happening in the country as people keep going missing.

“How many missing people are related to organ harvesting? How many such cases have been happening in countries where they do not care and corruption is rife? How many are even happening here! This is scary,” she tweeted.
