Written by Kayode Sanni on June 24, 2022
The trial of former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice Ekweremadu has been adjourned to July 7.
The United Kingdom Metropolitan Police formally charged two Nigerians with conspiracy to facilitate travel of another person for organ harvesting.
The suspects were arrested and charged over their plan to bring a child into the country to allegedly harvest the said child’s organs.
The two arrested suspects were identified as BEATRICE NWANNEKA EKWEREMADU, 55, and IKE EKWEREMADU, 60, from Nigeria.
At the Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court, they pleaded not guilty to the charges, according to a Daily Mail report.
“These are serious allegations and these matters are now adjourned until 7 July back here at Uxbridge,” Magistrate Lois Sheard said.
Ms Sheard remanded both defendants into custody ahead of their hearing next month.
