Alleged Organ Harvesting: UK Doctor Accused Of Plotting With Ekweremadu

A doctor has been charged with plotting with Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, to traffic a man into the United Kingdom to harvest a kidney for their daughter.

Ekweremadu, a former Deputy President of the Senate, is being held alongside his wife by the UK authorities over allegations that he brought a young man into the country for the purpose of organ harvesting.

The doctor was identified as Obinna Obeta and is said to be residing in Southwark in south London.

He was charged under the Modern Slavery Act with arranging the travel of the 21-year-old man with a view to him being exploited between last August and May, Daily Mail reported.

In another charge, the defendant was alleged to have conspired with the couple to arrange or facilitate the travel of the man with a view to him being exploited, namely organ harvesting.

Fifty-year-old Obeta was brought to the Bexley Magistrates’ Court on July 13, while arguments in the case were heard on Friday.
