Ekweremadu, Wife Open Up On Organ Harvesting Tale

Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweramadu and his wife, Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu have reacted to the organ harvesting allegation making the rounds on the internet.

Ekweremadu through his lawyer, Gavin Irwin, said:

“There is no question this is a serious allegation. Mr Ekweremadu is a member of the senate in Nigeria. He has previously held an even more senior role as deputy president of the senate.”

“He is a member of the bar in Nigeria. He is a principal in a law firm that bears his name.”

“Those issues taken together go way beyond him being a person of good character, rather that he has led a blameless life as a public servant.”

Mrs. Ekweremadu’s lawyer, Antonia Gray said:

“My client has never been complicit or involved in any alleged illegal trafficking of any young person.”

“She is a financial accountant with an unblemished record.”

The case was adjourned to July 7, 2022.

For those who don’t know, Senator Ekweremadu and his wife were arrested on Thursday, June 23, 2022 by UK police for alleged organ harvesting.

The couple were charged with conspiracy to facilitate the travel of a minor for alleged organ harvesting.

Ekweremadu and his wife appeared before the Uxbridge Magistrate Court on Thursday and they were denied bail.
