Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
THE Central Criminal Court in London, the United Kingdom, on Monday, adjourned the trial of Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, over alleged organ harvesting from May 2023 to January 31, 2023.
The arguments will be heard on the 16th or 19th of December 2022 before the commencement of the trial in January.
The lawmaker and his wife, Beatrice, were arrested on June 23, 2022, and charged with alleged conspiracy to traffic a person for organ harvesting in violation of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
He had reportedly arranged to harvest the organ of one David Nwamini for his sick daughter, Sonia Ekweremadu.
Though he was absent from court today, his wife who was released on bail in July and Sonia, the couple’s daughter, were present.
Last week, Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court Abuja, ordered the interim forfeiture of Ekweremadu’s 40 assets following an ex-parte motion by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
