Ekweremadu News today on organ harvesting.
The alleged organ harvesting case involving former deputy Senate president Ike Ekweremadu has been postponed by the Central Criminal Court in the United Kingdom.
According to the judge presiding over the case, the trial will officially start on May 2, 2023, but the pretrial applications hearing will take place on October 31.
Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice are accused of plotting to send David Nwamini somewhere in order to go and harvest his organs.
The couple was detained by the London Metropolitan Police in June, and they were brought before a magistrate court in July. However, on July 22, Ekweremadu’s wife was granted bail.
The senator representing Enugu west requested a new attorney to represent him in court on Thursday.
The stated victim of the organ harvesting allegation, Nwamini, was described by the police as a 15-year-old, but the court determined that he is actually 21.
