Just in: Ekweremadu bags 10 year jail term over organ harvesting


A UK court on Friday sentenced former deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu to 10 years and 6 months in jail following their conviction for organ trafficking in March.

The trio of Ekweremadu, Beatrice and Obeta were convicted of conspiracy to arrange the travel of a young Nigerian man who was identified as David Nwamini to Britain in order to exploit him for his kidney.

The organ was needed for Ekweremadu’s sick daughter, Sonia.

Their trial lasted for six weeks and conviction at the Old Bailey, London’s Central Criminal Court, is expected today.
