Sen. Ike Ekweremadu and wife reportedly arrested in UK for organ h@rvesting

Two Nigerians have been arrested by UK police for conspiring to traffic a child to Nigeria for the purpose of ‘h@rvesting’ the organs, Daily Mail reports.

Metropolitan police in a statement said that Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu and Ike Ekweremadu – a former deputy senate president – who are 55 and 60 years old respectively have been remanded in custody and will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court.

The police confirmed that Ike Ekweremadu and his wife have been charged with conspiring to arrange to bring a child to the UK to h@rvest organs in their home country, Nigeria.

Charges were brought against the pair ollowing an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime team. Police, however, said the child has been safeguarded but did not disclose the gender or the age of the child or the location of the arrests.

The report suggests that it is likely the suspects were arrested at Heathrow Airport since they are appearing in a court in Uxbridge.

The investigation was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation in May 2022, the force said.
