In December 2021, former deputy senate president Ike Ekweremadu sent a letter to the British high commission about a kidney donor for his daughter, Sonia Ekweremadu.
A statement from the UK Metropolitan Police on Thursday said that Ekweremadu and his wife were charged with taking a child to the UK for an organ transplant.
After the police’s crime unit looked into the case, the two were reportedly charged.
Investigators started looking into possible violations of the law against modern slavery in May 2022, according to the police, who said that the investigation had begun at that time.
On Thursday, the two people went to the Uxbridge magistrates’ court. They were denied bail, so they had to stay in jail. The case has been put off until July 7.
