Former deputy Senate Presidential, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu are currently in custody of the Metropolitan Police in London.
They are being held over allegation of conspiring to bring a child to the United Kingdom for organ harvesting.
The story on the website of the Metropolitan Police reads
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 travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting.
