UK University suspends Sen. Ike Ekweremadu following his trafficking case Days after his appointment

Senator Ike Ekweremadu’s appointment as a visiting professor at the University of Lincoln, a public research university in the United Kingdom, has been suspended.

The university’s choice comes after Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, were detained and then charged on Thursday in London for allegedly conspiring to remove a 15-year-old boy’s kidney, Ukpo Nwamini David, from his body.

Following the serious accusations, Ekweremadu’s responsibilities at the university have reportedly been temporarily suspended, according to a university official.

This occurs shortly after the institution named Ekweremadu a visiting professor of Corporate and International Linkages.

“Visiting professors are often, as is in this case, non-resident at the university, unpaid and advisory We are deeply concerned about the nature of these allegations, but as this is an active police investigation, we cannot comment further at this stage. Whilst this matter is subject to investigation, this person will not be undertaking any duties as visiting professor at Lincoln,” the university’s spokesperson said.
