Ekweremadu and His Wife Beatrice Legal Battle
Ekweremadu and Beatrice were arrested on June 23 and remanded in a prison in the UK over allegations of plotting to harvest the organ of one David Nwamini for use by their ailing daughter, Sonia. They are facing charges bordering on conspiracy to arrange/facilitate the travel of another person with a view to exploitation, namely organ harvesting.
