UK court grants Beatrice bail, denies Ike Ekweremadu
Beatrice, the wife of former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, has been granted bail by a London court.
On Monday, she was granted bail. In contrast, Ike Ekweremadu was refused bail.
“The problem is that I have given release to Beatrice subject to some rather rigorous terms but I have rejected bail to Ike,” said the Common Serjeant of London, judge Richard Marks.
Remember that Ike Ekweremadu and his wife were arrested and held by the Metropolitan Police in London for allegedly conspiring to harvest one David Ukpo Nwamini’s organs.
Ekweremadus was accused of attempting to smuggle a destitute man into the UK in order to harvest his kidney for their daughter.
According to the UK-based Daily Mail, Beatrice was charged under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 with organizing or enabling another person’s trip with the intent of exploitation between August 1 last year and May 5.
While the husband, Ike Ekweremadu, was charged with conspiracy to organize or enable another person’s journey for the purpose of exploitation, particularly organ harvesting.
