In continuation of his prosecution over organ harvesting charges, Ike Ekweremadu, a serving Nigerian Senator and former Deputy President of the Senate, in the National Assembly (NASS), Abuja, FCT, has appeared before the Uxbridge Magistrate Court in the United Kingdom (UK), over organ harvesting charges.

ConsumerConnect had reported the British prosecutor has claimed that David Ukpo Nwamini, who alleged that he was coerced to donate his kidney to the Senator’s daughter, is 15 years.

However, the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has disputed the claim by the prosecutor, saying the Uwamini is 21 years, going by documents for the issuance of his Nigerian passport.

The case has been adjourned to July 7, 2022, at Westminster Magistrate Court, to enable Suella Braverman, UK Attorney-General, to determine whether the case will be tried in the country or Nigeria.

Recently, the University of Lincoln, stated it banned Senator Ekweremadu from the recent appointment it gave him as a Visiting Professor of Corporate and International Linkages in the institution of higher learning.

The ban was sequel to the recent arrest and arraignment of Senator Ekweremadu, a serving Senator of the Federal Republic and former Deputy Senate President, and his wife, Beatrice, in London, for alleged conspiracy to harvest the kidney of certain David Ukpo Nwamini, who the UK security agency purported to be underage.
