A UK court has ordered former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu to be remanded in prison till October 31st. This comes after he appeared in court on Thursday. The court adjourned the case again till the end of October for a hearing. Recall that the Nigerian senator first appeared before the Uxbridge magistrates’ court in London, where the lawmaker denied all the charges against him. Both Ekweremadu and his wife were denied bail and remanded in custody while the case was adjourned to July 7 and now August 4, 2022.
However, on July 2nd, his wife, Beatrice was granted bail under strict conditions. According to Politics Nigeria, the Nigerian senate represented by Adamu Bulkachuwa (in brown kaftan), senate committee chairman on foreign affairs, was in court to show support for Ekweremadu. Only 20 people were allowed into the court premises to witness proceedings and any and all recording devices were barred.
