A court in the United Kingdom, UK, has granted Nigerian lawmaker and former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu’s wife, Beatrice bail.
AFRIPOST recalls the arrest of Ekweremadu and his wife in the British country over an alleged trafficking of a young Nigerian to the UK for the purpose of harvesting his kidney.
The 21-year-old was taken to the UK by the family to transplant his organs to their daughter who is currently down with kidney failure.
The Ekweremadus appeared at the Old Bailey for a bail hearing.
But the court insisted that Ekweremadu should remain in detention. It, however, granted his wife bail.
Beatrice was granted bail under stringent conditions by the Common Serjeant of London, Judge Richard Marks.
The judge, in his ruling said: “The position is that I have granted bail to Beatrice subject to some fairly stringent conditions, but I have refused bail to Ike.”
