Former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice Nwanneka have been charged with conspiring to bring a child to the UK in order to harvest organs, the Metropolitan Police said.

Beatrice 55, and Ike 60, have been remanded in custody and will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court today.

Skynews reported that charges were brought against the pair after an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime team.

The child, whose identity was not disclosed, is reportedly with the Metropolitan Police, while the suspects are currently in custody pending a few hours when they would be arraigned at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court.

The investigation was launched after detectives were alerted to potential offences under modern slavery legislation in May 2022, the force said.
