Ike Ekweremadu, the former deputy speaker of the Senate, was held by British authorities for 138 days for human trafficking.

The lawmaker was arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport in June 2022 and was immediately arraigned in Magistrates’ Court on charges of bringing a child into the country in order to harvest his organs.

He has been detained by British authorities since June 23, while his wife Beatrice Ekweremadu was arrested along with lawmakers and granted bail at London Crown Court.

Meanwhile, his daughter Sonia appeared in court on Monday on suspicion of trafficking a homeless man to the UK to harvest organs for herself.

The young man made a report at Staines Police Station shortly after arriving in the UK, leading to the arrest of the lawmaker and his wife; claiming to have undergone some medical tests, neither of which he agreed.

Due to further arguments, the request that was due to be filed today has been postponed, and the trial, which was due to continue in May, has now been postponed to January 31.

Prosecutor Oliver Glasgow said: “We have been told this courtroom will be able to accommodate a trial from three months ago.

“If an earlier date is available, and it is available, then it should be taken.”
