Organ-harvesting: Ekweremadu to Reappear in Court July 7

The Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Thursday adjourned the trial of a former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, on charges of conspiracy and organ harvest.

Ekweremmadu faces a charge of conspiracy to arrange or facilitate the travel of another person for exploitation under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

With the adjournment, the lawmaker will remain in custody until his next court date on July 7, 2022.

According to a BBC report, the embattled senator representing Enugu West Senatorial District appeared in court in London for a second time wearing a grey tracksuit and holding a Bible.

The report claimed no bail application was made and Ekweremadu will remain in custody until his next appearance at Westminster Magistrates’ court on July 7.

Ekweremadu’s wife Beatrice, 55, is charged with arranging or facilitating the travel of another person for exploitation and will appear in court later due to a delay in her transport from prison.
