Nigeria’s former Senate president Ike Ekweremadu charged with trying to bring child to UK to harvest organs

Former Nigeria’s Senate President Senator Ike Ekweremadu and wife, Beatrice, have been charged with conspiring to arrange to bring a child to the UK to harvest organs, the Metropolitan police said.

Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu, 55, and Ike Ekweremadu, 60, are charged with conspiracy to harvest organs.



The charges involve arranging or facilitating travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting, the Met said in a statement.

Both have been remanded in custody and will appear at Uxbridge magistrates court later on Thursday.

The child involved has been safeguarded, according to the Met.

The investigation was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation in May 2022, the force said.

No more details were available because criminal proceedings are under way.
