Former deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice Nwanneka, have been charged with conspiring to arrange to bring a child to the UK to harvest organs, the Uk Metropolitan Police said.
Ekweremadu and his wife, according to reports have been remanded in custody and will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court later today.
While the child has been safeguarded. Scotland Yard has not given the gender or the age of the child – or the location of the arrests.
Although, there was no official photos, but Dailymail reports that the suspects are appearing in court in Uxbridge, however, it is likely they were held at the nearby Heathrow Airport.
The investigation, according to Dailymail was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation in May 2022, the force said.
Recall that In 2017, former minister of aviation, claimed that migrants from Nigeria were having their organs harvested after being sold into slavery.
Femi Fani-Kayode, alleged that 75 per cent of slaves who have their organs harvested in North Africa are from his Nigeria.
The Cambridge University-educated lawyer added that the victims have their ‘bodies mutilated’ and are ‘roasted like suya [shish kebabs]’. He went on: ‘Roasted alive! This is what Libyans do to sub-Saharan Africans who are looking for a transit point to Europe.
‘They sell them into slavery and either murder, mutilate, torture or work them to death.’
