The former senate President was arrested by the London Metropolitan Police following an intelligence report.

He was subsequently arraigned on organ harvesting and trafficking charges in line with the UK modern slavery legislation.

He was said to have arranged the travel of a young man, David Ukpo, from the streets of Lagos State for that purpose.

The alleged kidney donor, was said to have alerted the hospital in the UK, alleging he was unaware he was brought into the country to donate his kidney to Ekweremadu’s daughter, Sonia.
