Sonia, the daughter of federal lawmaker, Ike Ekweremadu, on Monday appeared in court accused of trafficking a homeless man into the United Kingdom to harvest his organs for herself.

 

According to Daily Mail, the younger Ekweremadu, was accused alongside her father Ike Ekweremadu, 60, her mother Beatrice Ekweremadu, 56, and 50-year-old doctor Obinna Obeta of conspiracy to arrange the travel of another person with a view to exploitation.

It was reported that Ms Ekweremadu has not entered a plea but a trial date has been set for January. 

 Sonia has a kidney-related disease and has been on dialysis for some time.

It is alleged they conspired together, with others unknown and with another family member Isaac Ekweremadu, to arrange the travel of a 21-year-old man identified as David Ukpo Nwamini, with a view to exploiting him between 1 August 2021 and 5 May this year. 

They have been accused of facilitating his travel from Lagos to London to remove one of his kidneys and use same for their daughter, Sonia, who has a kidney-related disease and has been on dialysis for some time.


While in court today, the prosecutors claim the plot was to harvest Nwamini's organ for Sonia's benefit.  The prosecutors told the court that the Ekweremadus and their doctor were arrested after the young man, who previously lived on the streets of Lagos, turned up at Staines police station, claiming he was the victim of trafficking.


Prosecutors claim Nwamini told police officers he had arrived in the UK on 20 February this year and had been taken to Royal Free Hospital for tests, none of which he consented to. After these tests, Nwamini said he had returned to the house he had been staying in, where he was 'treated effectively as a slave'. Prosecutors claim he escaped the address and was homeless for three days before going to the police.


Mr. Ekweremadu and his doctor are currently on remand in HMP Wandsworth and HMP Belmarsh respectively. They did not appear at court today. Mrs Ekweremadu was granted bail at a hearing in July and appeared in court today alongside Sonia.
