A photo is making rounds of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu in a UK court where he was arraigned for allegedly bringing a child to the UK for alleged organ harvesting.

According to reports, Ike Ekweremadu, and his wife, Beatrice, got arrested in the UK by the metropolitan police.

The police in a statement said, the couple was charged to court on Thursday, June 23, following an investigation by the police specialist crime team. It was gathered that an investigation was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offenses under modern slavery legislation in May 2022.

A letter the former deputy senate president wrote to the British High Commission about a kidney donation for his daughter last year December, has also surfaced.

In the letter, the former deputy senate president stated that he was writing in support of a visa applicant who was scheduled for “medical investigations for a kidney donation to Ms Sonia Ekweremadu”.

He said the donor and his daughter “will be at the Royal Free Hospital London”, adding that he would “be providing the necessary funding”.

The trial of the former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu and wife, Beatrice has been adjourned to July 7, 2022.
