Former Senate Deputy President Dr. Ike Ekweremadu 60, and his wife, Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu, 55, have been remanded in custody and will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court today.

The two of them have been charged with conspiring to bring a child to the UK in order to harvest organs, the Metropolitan Police said.

Charges were brought against the pair, who are from Nigeria, following an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime team.

A child has now been safeguarded.

The investigation was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation in May 2022, the force said.
