Ike Ekweremadu’s daughter appeared in a UK court today, November 7, to respond to allegations that she brought a homeless man into the nation illegally in order to obtain his organs for herself.

Ekweremadu and his wife Beatrice were detained in June of this year and have since been on trial with their doctor, Obinna Obeta, on charges of conspiracy to set up another person’s trip with the intention of taking advantage of him and harvesting his organs.

They are accused of conspiring to organize the trip of a 21-year-old man named David Ukpo Nwamini with the intention of abusing him between 1 August 2021 and 5 May of this year, together with unnamed third parties and another family member Isaac Ekweremadu. They are accused of arranging for him to come from Lagos to London in order to have one of his kidneys removed and donated to their daughter Sonia, who has a kidney condition and has been receiving dialysis for some time.

The prosecution claims in court today that Nwamini’s organ was to be harvested for Sonia. According to the prosecution’s testimony before the court, the Ekweremadus and their doctor were detained after the young guy, who had previously lived on the streets of Lagos, showed up at the Staines police station and claimed to be a victim of trafficking.

Nwamini allegedly admitted to police investigators that he had arrived in the UK on February 20 and had been transported to the Royal Free Hospital for tests—none of which he had given his approval for. Nwamini claimed that following these examinations, he went back to the residence where he had been residing and was ‘treated effectively as a slave’.   He allegedly ran away from the residence and lived on the streets for three days before calling the police.

Both Mr. Ekweremadu and his physician are being detained at HMP Belmarsh and HMP Wandsworth, respectively. They did not show up today in court. At a hearing in July, Mrs. Ekweremadu was granted bail; today, she appeared in court with Sonia.
