Reports reaching us states that former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice have been arrested in London.

The Metropolitan Police in London announced that Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu, 55, and Ike Ekweremadu, 60, have been remanded in custody and will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court later today.

They are both charged with conspiracy to arrange the travel of a child with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting.

The Metropolitan Police said the child has been safeguarded. Scotland Yard has not given the gender or the age of the child – or where the arrests were made.

But given the suspects are appearing in court in Uxbridge, it is likely they were held at the nearby Heathrow Airport and so the choice of Uxbridge in lieu of its proximity to the airport.

Organ harvesting involves removing parts of the body, often for cash and against the victim’s will.

The news, though emanating from London is generating quite a traffic in Nigeria due to the status of the Ekweremadus.

It remains to see what the court will decide later today as close sources claim that the issue is being over bloated and the Ekweremadus are innocent of the accusations.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
