Organ Harvest: Ekweremadu’s Wife Gets Bail While Senator Is Detained For A Month
Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu, the wife of Nigerian senator Ike Ekweremadu, appeared at the Old Bailey in London, England, on Friday for a bail hearing. She was granted release.
Judge Richard Marks, the Common Serjeant of London, claims this.
Ekweremadu was charged with smuggling a 21-year-old into the UK so she could remove his kidney for her daughter, who was ill.
The court stated, “The position is that I have rejected bail to Ike but I have given bail to Beatrice subject to some rather harsh terms.”
However, bail was declined for Ekweremadu.
After arriving at Heathrow from Turkey on June 21, Ike and Beatrice were detained.
The court was informed that the prosecution is not appealing the ruling.
As previously stated by prosecutor Tim Probert-Wood, the case featured “exploitation and the harvesting of an organ.”
He explained, “The case started on May 5, 2022, when the complainant showed up at Staines Police Station and claimed he had been brought here to have his kidney removed.
“He arrived on February 20, 2022, and was brought to Royal Free Hospital for testing.
“He did not consent to the removal of his kidney for the reason he was there. When he got back to the house where he was staying, things got even worse. He claimed that he was effectively treated like a slave.
