Beatrice Nwanneka Ekweremadu, the senator’s wife, has been granted bail and is 55 years old.

The former vice president of the senate and his wife are currently being tried in the UK for allegedly conspiring to smuggle a man, whose age has been determined to be 21, to the country in order to obtain a kidney for their daughter.

Ike is accused of conspiring to arrange or facilitate the travel of another person with the intention of exploitation, specifically organ harvesting, between August 1 of last year and May 5, whereas Beatrice is charged with arranging or facilitating the travel of another person with the intention of exploitation.

While her husband’s application was turned down, the wife of the former Deputy Senate President received bail with strict restrictions.

Common Serjeant of London Judge Richard Marks spoke on the bail, ‘The position is that I have granted bail to Beatrice subject to some fairly stringent conditions but I have refused bail to Ike.’

Prosecutors are not appealing the ruling, according to the Daily Mail. The case featured “exploitation and the harvesting of an organ,” according to prosecutor Tim Probert-Wood.

He said;

The case began on 5 May 2022 when the complainant presented himself at Staines Police Station and claimed he had been transported to this country for the purpose of his kidney being removed.

‘He arrived on 20th February 2022 and was taken to Royal Free Hospital where tests were conducted.

‘For the purpose, he was there he did not consent to the taking of his kidney.

‘He returned to the house he was staying and his treatment changed dramatically.

‘He described being treated effectively as a slave.’

Martin Hicks, the attorney for Ike Ekweremadu, however, stated.

‘We deny that there was any exploitation or any intent to do so.

‘The argument will be factual denial.

The pair is scheduled to show up at the Old Bailey on August 4.
