Recall that a court in the United Kingdom, on March 23, found the former vice president of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, his wife, Beatrice, guilty of organ harvesting in the country.

The former Speaker of the Senate has been arrested by the Metropolitan Police in London following an intelligence report.

He was later arrested for organ harvesting and trafficking under UK modern slavery laws.

He is said to have arranged for a young man, David Ukpo, to travel from the streets of Lagos State for this purpose.

The alleged kidney donor notified the hospital in England, claiming he was unaware he had been brought into the country to donate a kidney to Ekweremadu’s daughter Sonia.

But Ekweremadu and his wife have pleaded not guilty, saying they were “deceived”.
