Alleged Organ Harvesting: What Ekweremadus Needed The Organs For – Prosecutors Reveal

Rita Enemuru, Reporting

Prosecutors at the Uxbridge Magistrate Court in London, United Kingdom (UK) have revealed what arrested former Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, needed the human organs for.

They disclosed to the court that the Ekweremadus have a daughter who has a kidney-related disease and has been on dialysis for quite some time.

They told the court that it is believed that the plan was to use an organ from the boy on their daughter who appears to need a kidney transplant.

Meanwhile, the court has denied Mr Ekweremadu and wife bail, ordering them to be remanded in custody and adjourned the case till July 7.

According to Arise TV, the prosecutors said the Ekweremadus were being charged for bringing the alleged 15-year-old boy from Nigeria to the UK with the claim that he was to be given a better life in the UK, but was actually to harvest his organ.

The prosecutors told the court that the former Senate President procured a passport for the boy and claimed he was 21 years old but they discovered that he was 15 years old.

Ekweremadu and his wife had separate legal representations and prayed the court to release them on bai,l but their prayer was, however, dismissed by the Magistrate.

The couple has surrendered their passports to the UK government.

The couple was arrested at Heathrow airport, on their way to Istanbul, Turkey and according to the prosecutors, it is believed that they were on their way to procure another organ as they were unable to harvest the organ of the boy.

The prosecutors also stated that $20, 000 was found on Mr. Ekweremadu.

According to AriseTV, the red flag that stopped the organ from not being harvested came after the boy truthfully disclosed his age to the doctors at the Royal Free hospital in the UK.

The doctor reportedly cancelled the procedure. The boy was taken from a family who, according to the prosecutors, treated him like a slave, after he escaped and found his way to the police where an investigation started, leading to the arrest of the couple.
