Ekweremadu, Wife, Daughter Found Guilty Of Organ Trafficking
Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has been found guilty of organ trafficking by a United Kingdom court.
His wife Beatrice, daughter Sonia and Obinna Obeta, a doctor involved in the case, were also found guilty.
The jury found that they conspired to bring the victim to London to exploit him for his kidney.
Ekweremadu, Beatrice, their daughter, Sonia, and Obeta had been standing trial at the Old Bailey for organ trafficking.
Their conviction on Thursday was the first verdict of its kind under the Modern Slavery Act.
Ekweremadu and his wife were last year arrested in the United Kingdom for allegedly trafficking a young man into the country to harvest his kidney.
