UK court grants Ekweremadu’s wife, Beatrice bail over alleged organ harvesting

CITIZENS COMPASS- A London court, in United Kingdom has granted bail to

Beatrice, wife of Senator Ike Ekweremadu, the embattled former Nigerian deputy senate president,
over allegations of human trafficking and organ harvesting.

She was granted bail on Monday, 25 July, 2022.

Recall that the couple were arrested on June 23 by the London police, claiming they tried to traffic a minor to illegally harvest his organ.

The claim that the alleged victim, David Ukpo, was a minor was subsequently debunked after passports, national ID and other documents revealed he is 21.

Despite that, the Ekweremadus were not granted bail after appearing in court on July 7.

The matter was adjourned until August for further hearing before Monday’s decision to free Mrs Ekweremadu her husband would remain in custody.

In his ruling on Monday, the Common Sergeant of London, Richard Marks, said,
“The position is that I have granted bail to Beatrice subject to some fairly stringent conditions but I have refused bail to Ike,”
